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 (morse taper) size. 7mm shaft. This mandrel is also available with a #1 Morse Taper (#44341, sold separately).

John G on Mar 21, 2018
works well, but after a while they start to get out round so I like to have a spare when pen making
Lawrence M on Sep 8, 2017
It is one of the best mandrels I've ever used and, since I have 2 shops 1,250 miles apart, it seems that my best tools are always at the other place. I bought here because it is the best price anywhere online or at brick-and-mortar.
J.B. B on Jun 23, 2017

Can this Mandrel be used on Ceiling Fan Pull Kits?
William T on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The mandrel can be used on a variety of projects. You just need to buy the bushings that the fan pulls require. I have three different sized bushings that I use for different projects.
The shaft does not lock well for some reason. If i have a pen blank mounted in the madrel, tightening the screw on top will move the shaft down even if the chuck wont tighten any further. is there a problem with the mandrel i received?
Emilio F on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It sounds like there might be a problem with the fitting. The mandrel just has a compression fitting that clamps down on the shaft when the compression nut is tightened. If you have tightened up on the nut and it doesn't hold the shaft of the mandrel securely then it sounds like there might be a problem with the compression fitting.
can the m2 insert be removed to be used on a drill chuck?
Ariel Y on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Ariel. . . I don't know why not. If the drill bit is the same diameter as the mandrel shaft, it should work. Although, if you need a jacobs chuck to drill often, they're nice to have. I'd suggest picking one up next time you're at
Rockler. Very valuable. Good luck.
