This new Turn Between Centers mandrel system from William Wood-Write lets you turn more accurate, consistent and concentric pen barrels. Riding on two centers, there is no mandrel shaft that can become bent, eliminating out-of-round blanks. Using your regular pen bushings, you’ll instead have a turned pen barrel that matches precisely with your pen kit parts. The easy-to-use system includes an MT headstock insert and live MT tailstock insert – each with 7-mm pins (similar to a 7-mm mandrel shaft). Available for MT1 or MT2 lathes.
