2MT-A Mandrel


The A mandrel fits all lathes with a #2 Morse taper and has a flute in the threads to make it self-tapping. The back end is threaded for a 1/4-20 draw bar. It is exactly like the #2MT-B mandrel but it will not seat flat on the jaws of a chuck.  Put a 1/4″ rod or screw driver in the spanner hole to hold the mandrel makes it easier to unthread the finished stopper.
