Replacement Mandrel Shaft with Nut
Some items just seem to easily disappear in the sawdust around wood lathes. Keep a replacement mandrel shaft with nut handy so your project does not come to a halt. Replacement for pen mandrels...
- Precision machined
- Exact replacement
- For use with the pen and pencil mandrel
The shaft end will not fit through the little compression fitting tailstock end. I can get in a little to it will hold it but the adjustability on it is gone as the rod will not slide through the fitting even though without the fitting the rod will easily slide through the rest of the tailstock end. I'm just going to get a 2nd adjustable mandrel for my shorter pens and use this one for ones that usually require a full length mandrel.
Perfect for my use
This is a spare shaft in case I damage the original and the price is right
Looks good, runs true, works in my equipment. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck it ain't no bear.
I will buy these again as I need them iu
I have several set up for the different pens that I make.
I needed a new mandrel
When the end of the shaft was threaded, the diameter increased slightly making it difficult to slide bushings over the threads. The threads were different than the original mandrel so my original nut would not work on the new mandrel
