How it works?

The Turn-Between-Centres Mandrel rides on two centres instead of a mandrel shaft, resulting in more accurate turning.

Turning your pen this way eliminates any possibility of a bent shaft producing off-centre turning and an oval shaped pen barrel.

How do I use it?

  1. Mount the drive centre and live centre onto your lathe
  2. Mount your bushings onto the 7mm pins
  3. Mount your pen blank onto the bushings 
  4. Bring the tailstock forward to secure your blank between centres
  5. Turn the blank as you normally would

This system is ideal for single-barrel pens.

Double-barrel pens will be a little more work as this system requires that each pen-barrel is turned individually. However, the superior result achieved will justify this extra effort.

What results can you expect?

Your turned pen-barrels will be perfectly concentric and will mate precisely with your pen parts (nib, centreband and pen cap).

What will I receive?

Your new mandrel system includes the following components:

  • MT2 (#2 morse-taper) drive centre with 7mm pin for your lathe's headstock
  • MT2 live centre with 7mm pin for your lathe's tailstock

Haven't used it on a pen as yet, but did try it on an old tubed blank. It works great.
