- Does anyone use something like Beall's "treen mandrel" on the Taig?
Here's the site: www.bealltool.com/treen
The mandrels they make are for the Jet or Morse taper lathes. It might
be fun to turn "treens" on the Taig, too.
This is how they explain "treen" on their site:
"Treen is a term used to describe any of a number of small, utilitarian
items made from wood. Treen, literally means "from a tree" and can cover
anything from carved kitchen ware such as spoons and porringers, to
turned boxes and bowls. Though the word has been out of general use for
some time, it is returning and is particularly apt for the many small
hand turned objects now being made."
- Up to 1" bore it would be easy to make these out of the blank arbors. Larger
than that you could just turn some out of Aluminum and chuck them in the 4
