Visit your account to find out With 4 sides you can’t really change the grain, with 2 sides you can move the piece while the tailstockside doesn’t move and this will change the direction of the grain, or if perhaps the bowl is a NE you can change the sides so they are even and so on. 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.

He uses this to adjust the grain pattern when turning a bowl.

I haven’t seen it like this but I believe this is the same principle as a 2 prong driver. If at first you don’t succeed, look in the trash for the instructions. He wasn’t using a point on the tailstock as this would create a bpwl that would stymie micro adjusting of that end.
