The sprung stainless steel tip and sharp teeth that bite into the wood will guarantee optimal hold. This works even on lathes where the axles (spindle stock to tailstock) are not 100 % aligned. Safe working is guaranteed. The geometry of the teeth also makes this exceptionally good for tensioning unusual shapes. To do this, the piece is tensioned between the Sorby revolving stepcentre and a Sorby driver.
