A drive shoe is a beveled-edge sleeve or coupling that is attached to the bottom of pipe or casing to act as a cutting edge in most casing advancement systems. It also acts as a protector for the pipe/casing to prevent splitting. Due to the stress and wear on drive shoes, each shoe is hardened to increase its life. Wellmaster Drive Shoes are made from quality steel tube.

Carefully controlled induction heating ensures uniform hardness around the entire cutting edge of the shoe. The shoes also include a phosphate interior coating to prevent corrosion and rust, and Wellmaster paints the drive shoes to customer specifications. The boring and machining is done by the company’s CNC machines, which ensures that Wellmaster makes high quality drive shoes that ‘Make a Difference.'
