For fans of our premium Pizza Cutter, Bottle Opener, and Ice Cream Scoop Hardware Kits, here is a handy mandrel that will have you cranking out turned handles like hotcakes. With a shoulder diameter that matches the final turned diameter of your handles, the turning mandrel eliminates the guesswork and repetitive measuring that you previously had to do as you brought the blank down to size. The mandrel also features a post that threads directly into the handle insert that comes with the turning kits, a touch that makes chucking the handle into your lathe simpler than ever before.

  • Stainless Steel Pizza Cutter Turning Kit, Pewter (#55423, sold separately)
  • Stainless Steel Pizza Cutter Turning Kit, Chrome (#34913, sold separately)
  • Bottle Opener Turning Kit, Chrome (#42387, sold separately)

A simple must have for any lathe!
For any small project with a 5/16-18 thread this makes turning the handles easier and faster.

Makes turnings easier to do.
Using the mandrel makes turning handles go much quicker. Saves steps if I didn't use it. Would recommend.

Can this be used by screwing in into wood only, not the insert?
sandy h on Mar 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve, you could screw it into wood but the thread pitch and size would not have a lot of holding power if stressed or they type of wood you are using (soft or hard). i'm not sure if you are tying to turn, you might want a screw chuck or a bottle chuck.
Can this be used by screwing in into wood only, not the insert?
sandy h on Mar 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Mo, I make cast bottle stoppers and drill and tap into both wood and resin all the time. For kits that come with a threaded insert I will use those after drilling a hole that allows the inserts threads to cut into the piece a bit along with some 5 minute epoxy
What drill bit size for threaded insert in pizza kit?
Patrick s on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bit for the pizza cutter, bottle opener and ice cream scoop inserts is 1/2"
I am looking to purchase just a bottle opener with the shaft so i can drill holes in antlers and make bottle openers out of them. Do you sell those in bulk. thanks
Dan W on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be found by the turning kits
