Product Information

Aussie Made - Pen Mandrel Saver

It's a pain for many pen turners when the mandrel bends and ruins the live centre whilst turning a blank.

With the Pen Mandrel Saver, pressure is applied directly onto the blank rather than the mandrel, preventing a bent mandrel.

Buy the best you can afford - that way you only cry once.

A mandrel saver is a type of live centre and has a morse taper. They replace the traditional live centre in the tailstock of the lathe.

  •  Japanese Made 6002NSE Thrust bearing which is the same as a Heavy Duty Live Centre.
  • Proudly Made in Australia for Timberbits. The Chinese mandrel savers that you can get for around $15 has just a standard bearing not designed for the thrust load. It squeals and overheads very quick - and results in a failed tool.
  • Available in MT1 and MT2.
