#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.
#2 Mandrel Saver And Pen Mandrel Product Description
Complete package includes a Dedicated Mandrel. This set includes a 7mm drill bit, 5 bushings, the Mandrel Saver Tailstock Center PLUS a basic mandrel (no threads or knurled nut) that works great with your Mandrel Saver. Here's a complete mandrel system for just a bit more than the cost of a new mandrel.
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.
