For customers who have purchased our Cheese Knife, Cheese Plane and Pizza Server Turning Kits (#52836, #59844 and #59981, sold separately), this handy mandrel will have you cranking out handles like hotcakes. With a shoulder diameter that matches the final turned diameter of your handles, the 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.

This is a necessity if you are going to make the kits
The kits would be MUCH more difficult without this piece. It made a nice stable center. The diameter of the mandrel matched that of the kit, so it makes it easy to envision the finished product.

Work just fine
Read all of the reviews and had concerns about this item. Purchased one my self and found it to be just fine. As to the breaking issue not sure but it could be operator error. Have made several Items with it in just a few days and not one problem.

Does this have a tapered #2, and is the screw removable?
Frank P on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This mandrel is meant for use in a Jacobs chuck in the headstock. It has no taper. I believe the screw can be removed.
Does this a taped end and is the removable?
Frank P on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: not a tapered end and it is not removable. Works very well with the item it is make for.
Would this chuck be sufficient to hold this mandrel or would i need something else? https://www.rockler.com/lathe-chuck-and-tapers-chuck
Matt G on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The answer is Depends.... On the size of the piece you are turning. Under 2" diameter should be fine and lengthly wood, like a handle will need tail stock support via a live center.

best,
Phil
What is the difference in a #1 and #2 mandrel?
Marshall M on Sep 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: #1 and #2 pertain to the geometry of the taper of tools that are directly inserted into the spindle or tailstock, but that does not apply to this item as it has no taper and is intended to be inserted into a chuck when used.
Put the threaded insert on the mandrel and it immediately got stuck on because it tightened on when I inserted it to the wood blank. Any advice on getting it off? Trying to use pliers just ruined the threads on the insert. Would like to at least salvage the mandrel at this point.
Neil on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You could try pouring very hot (close to boiling) water over the insert. It should expand faster than the stainless steel mandrel. Use pliers or vice grip to remove insert. You can get replacement inserts at Lowe's. My mandrel sheared on the second or third use and I use the shoulder disc with a stainless steel bolt (head cut off) and a couple of stainless steel nuts; all from Lowe's. No problems with the home made unit.
On going; suggest you use a hex key to fit the insert in your blank, once the threads are cut, I epoxy mine in place.
Hope this helps.
David
What size drill bit do you use for this mandrel 3/4 shoulder 1/4-20 threads ?
Jack H on Oct 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A number 7 or 13/64 should work. Test on a scrap price first
