    Saves the mandrel

    Comments On Feb 08, 2019:This keeps you from bending the mandrel and causing out of round pens. If you turn pens on a mandrel skip the 60 degree live center and step up to this. As a plus you wonâ??t ruin your cone center which always happens with mandrels.

    This thing is EXCELLENT!

    Comments On Dec 21, 2018:I have turned upwards of 600 pens (mostly higher end kits), and every once in a while I would end up with an egg-shaped round. Adding this to my set-up with an adjustable mandrel, I virtually eliminated out-of-round turnings. I know there are a few higher-end setups, but this solved all my issues. I highly recommend investing in this pen center!
