Delivers on its promises
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.
pretty sure this will meet my needs...
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?
Perfect for my needs
Just what I wanted to turn powder horn spouts and base plugs.
Good mandrel, bad lock nut.
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
Simple and easy to use.
