New and truly IMPROVED because it is made of a better grade aluminum and the off-set hole spiral configuration, with 2 additional holes, greatly improves design creations. No more worrying about the thumb screws getting in the way of the mandrel; there are 12 holes in the off-set plate making it possible to use screws anywhere around the plates. *Note: the mandrel in this kit does not have the self-tapping flute/slit in the threads. You can use any of my self-tapping mandrels, however you must be very careful when threading them into the off-set plate. If there is any resistance, back it out and start again, do not force it because you will be cross threading the plate. You know if you will be aware of this or not.

**New addition are the 3 “Buttons”.  As the photo shows, double-face tape the wood blank to the button,  thread it in the off-set hole and either keep the mandrel in the center or get a double off-set design with the mandrel in one of the off-set holes.  I made the pendant and 1 earring and was impressed how great it did the same design on the 2″ and 1 1/4″ discs.  Normally you have to fiddle with the setting to get a smaller diameter disc to get the same cuts as a larger one.  These “Buttons” were designed by Jerry Sowers.

To make stoppers, openers, can tab lifters or knobs for boxes or unique cabinet knobs, use the bolt in the index plate as shown in the picture.
