Complete package includes a Dedicated Mandrel. This set includes a 7mm drill bit, 5 bushings, the Mandrel Saver Tailstock Center PLUS a basic mandrel (no threads or knurled nut) that works great with your Mandrel Saver. Here's a complete mandrel system for just a bit more than the cost of a new mandrel.
Are you tired of bending your Mandrel and ruining the point on your live center? If so, then this
fail-safe live center accessory is for you. Mandrels usually bend when you tighten the tailstock
center point into the end indentation of your mandrel. This system solves that
problem because your mandrel shaft goes through the hollow live center. Your bushings press against the center with zero
pressure on the mandrel shaft. The tube and bushing assembly tightens up by turning your tailstock quill adjustment wheel.
No need for extra spacer bushing as the system adapts to the length of your project
No need for the knurled nut that sometimes gets lost, misplaced or stripped.
Adapts to nearly every mandrel on the market with a shaft diameter of .245" or smaller.

"I have never turned a pen before or owned a lathe until recently (couple months). I have bought everything for my lathe from Penn State Industries. The C series chuck, drill bit chuck, a pen kit, and this mandrel saver. I have turned 12 pens and for a beginner they have turned out good I think. I have never used anything but this mandrel saver so u have nothing to compare it to. It works really well. I know that."
