This is a new product designed and manufactured by the team at Planet Plus; the Finial Mandrel kit simply fits in to the tail stock of your lathe and it offers support to the end of a finial (light pulls and other small similar projects) whilst turning the rest of the finial to its size and shape. The Finial Mandrel kit has three Delrin (nylon type) inserts each with a different size hole to support the end of the finial, the three sizes are 3mm, 4mm and 6mm hole depending on the size of the finial being turned. The inserts fit into the inner race of a free running bearing.
This new accessory is ideal for supporting and the turning of finials on light pulls, curtain draw pulls and other small similar projects, where it would be wise to have some form of free rotating support
The Finial Mandrel kit is supplied in either a No1 or No 2MT
Hi David, The centre finder arrived today, Thanks for not only sending a swift replacement but an excellent response to what was a small difficulty out of your control the post being what it is. I find that it's how a problem is dealt with after it has accrued that matters, and in this case it was dealt with very well. Should the original item find its way here I will return it to you, and yes it will be a pleasure to deal with you again. Thanks once again Malc - Malc
