See Mandrel Comparison page to see all the mandrels and their attributes.
This is the only chicken press on the market where woodturners, carvers and metal artists can create their own handle making a most unique gift and retail product. It weighs a little over 10 oz. so with a handle it is heavy enough not to need a lot of pressure to flatten chicken or fish or to crush nuts and garlic. Also make a tenderizer mallet at shown in the picture; they are very popular.
*How to: drill a 5/16″ hole in you handle blank, either use one of my self-tapping mandrels or the 3/8″ tap to thread the blank. With the mandrel on your headstock, thread the blank on the mandrel, bring up the tailstock to initially shape your handle; this eliminates vibration. Finish turning, apply finish of choice. Glue the set screw in the handle using either Tite Bond III or CA. You want to remove the handle to put the tenderizer in the dishwasher and if the set screw isn’t glued in, with removing it often, the threads will wear thin and it will have to be glued in later.
*Tip: For selling at shows, make 6 to 10 different handles with the set screws attached and let the customers choose which handle they want on a tenderizer, cookie press or chicken press.
