Center finders are essential in pipe fitting and pipe fabrication. Knowing the top dead center or bottom dead center of a pipe can be helpful in locating the position of a pipe in relationship of the objects around it. We carry several brands of center finders or centering heads.

#6 Curv-O-Mark Centering Head Standard 4″ Y-type head and an adjustable dial bubble protractor (DSL)
Made of aluminum with a hardened steel pin. It has a 4″ angle spread (Y-spread) and can be used from 1/2″ and larger. It is used most often for finding top dead center or bottom dead center on pipe. You can use it to find the location of other ordinate lines on the sides or at different angles. Once you have established these points you strike the pin with your hammer. This is the one the others are judged by.
The dial-level combination can be repaired using T145 Curv-O-Mark Dial Level Combination.
