Detailed Description

Oneway No. 2 Morse Taper Hollow Safe Driver

The Hollow Safe Driver is used when drilling a center hole through a turning using a Lamp Auger. It can perform in two ways: as a hollow safe driver or as a hollow cup center.

As a Hollow Safe Driver

When drilling through the headstock of your lathe, put the hollow safe driver in place of your spur drive center and use it to drive the workpiece. Make sure you use a light touch with the auger or the workpiece will slip.

As a Hollow Cup Center

When drilling through the tailstock of your lathe, put the hollow safe driver in place of your live center. The safe driver doesn't have bearings, you'll just to set it into you workpiece and let the wood spin on the front on the safe driver. Don't worry, people turned like this for thousands of years before ball bearing live centers were invented. In this case, the safe driver is performing as a cup or "dead" center. Make sure you regularly lubricate the tip of the safe driver with a a few drops of oil.

If you prefer drilling through the tailstock with a live center, you can use the Pro Live Center or the Oneway Live Center.

Selecting the Size

The Hollow Safe Driver is available with either a 5/16" or a 3/8" through hole. Your hollow safe driver MUST match the size of your lamp auger, but that's not the measurement you need to check. In order to use a hollow safe driver and lamp auger, you lathe MUST have either a hollow headstock or a hollow tailstock. Please check this before you order.

Oneway's Safe Driver is an alternative to the standard spur drive. It's great for training or practice - if you have a catch, the workpiece will spin on the safe driver - limiting damage to the project and potential for injury. The Safe Driver is a good way to learn a light touch and good tool control. If you cut too aggressively, the workpiece will stop.

The nose of the Safe Driver is about 5/8" in diameter.
