WPP #2 MT Precision Mandrels
Mandrels take a lot of abuse, but should last for a long time. Fully threaded mandrels are short lived as the threads quickly become a basin for debris and wear and make it easier to weld the blank onto the if you are using a CA finish while still on the lathe. Even the expensive so called professional mandrels get “Gunked up” so WPP has an economical mandrel that will last for a long time.
Use a light steel wool or very fine sandpaper to knock down any bumps that might occur due to aggressive turning. WPP Mandrels come with a set of Slim Bushings standard.
