Turn Between Centers Mandrel System pen mandrel

Product Description

Turn more accurate, consistent and concentric pen barrels with this one of a kind mandrel system. The Turn Between Centers mandrel rides on 2 centers rather than a typical rod Ð so more dead on turning. There is no mandrel shaft to bend so your turned barrel will eliminate an out of round blank, producing a blank that mates precisely with your pen parts. The system includes an MT headstock insert and live MT tailstock insert - each with 7mm pins (similar to a 7mm mandrel shaft). Mount your bushings onto the pins, mount your pen blank, then bring the tailstock forward to secure your blank between centers. Ideal for single tube pen styles. For #2 Morse Taper Lathes.

#2 MT Pen Mandrel & Mandrel Saver

 

#2 MT Basic Mandrel

This basic mandrel includes 3ea 7mm bushings - for use with Mandrel Saver Tailstock Center. Does NOT include knurled nut or indent for a live tailstock center or a 7mm drill bit.
Does not include mandrel saver.


#2 Mandrel Saver Product Description

Are you tired of bending your Mandrel and ruining the point on your live center? If so, then this fail-safe live center accessory is for you. Mandrels usually bend when you tighten the tailstock center point into the end indentation of your mandrel. This system solves that problem because your mandrel shaft goes through the hollow live center. Your bushings press against the center with zero pressure on the mandrel shaft. The tube and bushing assembly tightens up by turning your tailstock quill adjustment wheel. Great for beginners and students.

Other features:

  • No need for extra spacer bushing as the system adapts to the length of your project
  • No need for the knurled nut that sometimes gets lost, misplaced or stripped.
  • Adapts to nearly every mandrel on the market with a shaft diameter of .245" or smaller.


 

 

#2 Mandrel Saver And Pen Mandrel Product Description

Instructions:

1.   Turn your acrylic or wood blank to shape and size.  Sand to at least 400 grit.  If you are using an acrylic blank, skip to step 2.  If you are using wood, apply the CA finish prior to using the polish. 

2.   Apply a drop of the satin polish with a paper towel while the lathe is running. Work the polish back and forth along the turning blank.  After all of the polish has been removed, apply the gloss polish in the same manor.

Color Coded Grit Card Included

Product Description:

(Upgraded to all 9 grades!)
The same abrasive you've come to love from Micro-Mesh placed on a padded backing. While Micro Mesh works great on plastics. Some customers prefer the padded backing for wet sanding their acrylics. These pads also work wonderfully on CA finish.  After turning and applying the CA to your pen, razor, ect., sand your turning with each of these grits to produce a extremely glossy, glass-like finish!

ALL 9 GRADES of these 2 inch square padded abrasive sheets make polishing your plastics easier than ever before!

These pads are color coded and come with the color chart.  Every pad has the same grit on the front and the back.  You get twice the longevity from each pad as you do from other brands.

Micro-Mesh™ features tiny abrasive crystals on 2" square foam pads. These gentle "cushioned" particles generate less heat and friction than ordinary finishing papers, don't load up as quickly, and last much longer. Use Micro-Mesh with soapy water to produce a scratch-free mirror shine finishes. Great for repairing scratches and overspray. Perfect for polishing paint, plastics, wood, jewelry, polymer clay and anything else that needs a fine polish

Micro-Mesh was developed for polishing jet windshields to maintain their optical clarity. But since then they have found hundreds of uses.

These are the original Made in U.S.A. brand and not the cheap overseas imitations. Don't bother with the ones that have the grit printed on them, they don't last.

While these can be used wet, you should not soak them in water as the Micro Mesh may separate from the foam. You get 9 double sided 2" pads along with a laminated color coded card showing each grits color coding.

The grits include 1500, 1800, 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000 & 12000
