The Centering head is an essential piece of equipment for pipe fitters, fence builders, automotive mechanics and anyone who deals with piping or alignment jobs on a day-to-day basis.
The tool is shaped like the letter Y and is designed to aid the user in finding the centre point of any cylindrical object; this will work on either the inside or outside of pipework. The Y shape allows the tool to be place over the pipe or other circular material, with the object slotted into the grove of the Y. Once in this position you will be able to workout the center point.
Running through the middle of the tool is a hardened centre punch; this can taped at the top with a hammer to create a mark on the centre point of the object. This will give you an accurate point to work from.
