Unlike most other center finders, the Blokkz "Squid" lets you quickly and easily find the center of square and rectangular stock in addition to the usual round stock. It also acts as a centering punch, as it features an integral sharpened awl, which slides up and down through the center to suit the size of your material. The four notched legs snugly straddle your material for accurate results, every time. Works with a range of diameters from less than 1/4" to a maximum of 2-3/8", and with on-edge material up to 1-5/8" thick. The punch rod is a sturdy 3/16" diameter stainless steel rod housed in a polycarbonate shell that can be easily disassembled should the need arise to sharpen the tip.Legs of the punch are notched to accurately center punch rectangular, round and square material.Ideal for pen turning and other spindle turning projects.Maximum width of round and square material is 2-3/8" by 2-3/8".Minimum material diameter is less than 1/4".Maximum thickness of on-edge material is 1-5/8".The Squid is easily disassembled in the event the punch needs to be sharpened.Made of high strength polycarbonate with a stainless steel punch rod.Hanger hole allows you to hang the Squid on a shop peg or nail.Assembly Required: Assemble Squid with bolts supplied. For best accuracy, tighten bolts until punch rod starts to bind and then back off slightly to allow the punch rod to slide freely.
These special 25mm extended jaws are designed to act like a pin chuck, expanding into a pre-bored hole. This is an especially useful holding method for bowls with a free form edge. A big advantage over pin chucks is that you don't have to bore to an exact size - any size between the minimum and just under the maximum expansion will do. The longer jaw length allows for a very powerful spigot grip for smaller work like lace bobbins (up to 6" in length) and delicate pots. The jaws also have a dovetail for mounting small bowls (up to 6" in diameter).
