    Drive Center

    I could go web surfing for the answer but it's easier to just ask you guys.
    Does anyone make a drive center to fit in a 4-jaw chuck (Titan).

    I'm tired of removing the chuck to put in the Morse Taper #2 drive center then tapping it out to put the chuck back on then removing the chuck...well, you get the idea.

    I use a steb center, which works great! Just open your chuck jaws, insert the center and tighten.

    I wonder, what is wrong with Un screwing the chuck, insert the drive center that fits your lathe and then do the job at hand. when done , pop ot the drive center and screw on the chuck. What is wrong with this picture? Okay an extra minute out of you life, spent in un screwing the chuck and rescrewing, etc. I'm sorry, but even my time is not worth that effort.

    Cody,

    You are using the Titan. I would assume you will be turning heavier pieces; the close teeth of the Steb center may cut a ring.
