Overview

Obtain the perfect mandrel length for any pen kit. Just loosen the locking collar and adjust the mandrel as needed-no more hassling with spacers. Turn two barrels at once, or single barrels up to 6" long. Consult your lathe's instruction manual to determine the appropriate MT size. For 7mm pen bushings only.

Works as advertised. With this mandrel you don't have to mess around with spacer bushings... a big plus.

Guest from Owingsville, KY Posted August 19, 2009
I recently (Mar. 27, 2009) retired and built myself a hobby shop. I equipped the shop with a new table saw, planer, drill press, new router table, compound miter-saw, cabinet makers work bench, dust collector, and a small wood lathe. A metal lathe and small mill will be my next additions. One of my first non-repair lathe projects was a starter set of five slim-line pens. The MT-2 Mandrel was the perfect tool to get me going in creating some fine looking pens. It is an excellent tool especially for a beginner and probably great for pros too. I received another fixed MT-1 Mandrel with the starter kit but am unable to use it without an adapter. Someday I will get an adapter and directly compare the two but for now I can't see how fixed would be better then adjustable. At this point and given hat I am only a novice at pen making I would highly recommend this mandrel for anyone considering taking up pen making as a hobby or as a semi profession.

Needs a redesign

First one grossly out of round. Rockler was very quick to replace it but the second had the same issue. The internal collet held the rod slightly off angle so it rotates out of round. Called again, Rockler replaced with the non-adjustable version. This worked perfect. Rockler is a very good company to deal with. T
