In Detail

A simple and accurate tool for finding the centre of a piece of timber. Made from aluminium and pre-drilled for mounting conveniently near the lathe, it uses a knife-edged steel blade to score the end of the workpiece. Simply place a square or cylinder (up to 6" across) in the centre finder, tap it with a mallet, turn the wood 90° and tap it again. The result is two score lines which mark the centre of the workpiece. The Veritas Centre Finder functions well even with work that is not square. Just score the end of your workpiece four times rather than twice. This will give you a small polygon and you can then dot the centre of it by eye. It particularly shines when work has to be replaced on the lathe after waste ends have been removed. Because it is so accurate, you can re-establish the exact centre of any cylinder.

Veritas Centre Finder

What a fantastic piece of kit. This is so useful yet so simple. I need to find the absolute centre of dowle like wood in one of my pastimes - fishing float making - this little tool is perfect and saves a lot of time and aggravation.

Have you ever tried to find the exact centre on both ends of a wine bottle cork? This tool does it with ease :-)
