Appears well made. I have not had a chance to turn anything, but it fits my Shopsmith perfectly. It even has the classic "pop" when you remove it which means it was machined to close tolerances.

Have looked and used a number of mandrels for mounting blocks for turning wine stoppers. This is the only one designed just for the Shopsmith.

I think it's a WELL MADE tool. It fits on the spindle like it should, With the proper angle on the set screw. when you pull it off, it "POPS". ONLY a SS owner will understand that. :) That's because it's made to close tolerances. The only sorts bad thing I can say it doesn't need the included allen wrench because every SS owner has a SS toolkit. I suggested it on a forum and found out they bought one also.
