Product Information:

Our economical mandrel system provides the base for turning precision pens, pencils, key chains, etc. To use, simply place the proper bushings and your blanks on the shaft and secure with the knurled brass mandrel nut. When turning projects such as key chains, which do not require the full length of the mandrel shaft, just slide the provided stop onto the mandrel until the needed length is exposed, and tighten the stop! Mandrel includes morse taper shaft, knurled brass shaft nut and compression stop nut.


  • Precision machined to eliminate off-center turning
  • Simple length adjustment
  • For use with pen and pencil kit bushings
  • Morse tapered for use with most lathes
  • Easily tighten with knurled nut

    Comments about 1 MT Mandrel :

    My primary activity is making small gift/decorative items: Boxes, bowls, etc. New to the pen making arena. Don't have a lot of experience with pen mandrels but have plenty with purchased items that don't perform. This one worked right the first time, right out of the box.

    Comments about 1 MT Mandrel :

    Can anyone tell me how to get this on to my lathe? There are no instructions with it and I'm a beginner. I have inherited my father's RTC wood turning lathe. The end shaft of the mandrel does not fit into the headstock. Is there some kind of adapter I can get?

    Comments about 1 MT Mandrel :

    Seems to be a good mandrel. But I don't really have anything to base that on. It is the ony mandrel I've ever used. I did discover something about it though, if you use the locking nut to shorten it up, and get it tight enough that it won't move around, it leaves a lil divit on the mandrel. I only found out when i put the egg scope bushing on it(didn't need to shorthen it up) and it got stuck where the lock nut was. So, replacement mandrels are cheap, I now have one with the nut on it and one without. And a spare egg bushing. lol
