Isn’t that thing just a revamped faceplate driver? He wasn’t using a boel on the tailstock as this would create a hole that would stymie micro adjusting of that end. I’m guessing the bolts are adjustable, like someone else said you are looking at the lathe side, the plate is probably threaded, thats how you’d adjust the wood.

The use of the two pin driver is very handy when going to turn a blank with the bark still left on, where you would want to get the best orientation for the balance of the piece and centering and the grain, placing the blank between a driver like that and the tailstock center you can move the piece around without restriction, both on the head and tailstock side, even after partial turning you can reorient the piece.


Leo Van Der Loo has shown pictures of several of these in the past, I believe even with 4 or more larger sheet metel screws sticking through to drive the blank.

If I am correct you would still have to use a tail stock to push the blank onto this driver. Hi Mike, the driver that’s shown is just another incarnation of the old faceplate driver, just like I have said before there’s nothing new in turning, just rehash of the old.
