Evening all! I hope someone might point me in the right direction with mandrel fitting to my lathe? I've a photo below if the mandrel in question. I've seen on google people use a collet however I don't believe I have this variety.

Would this be correct? The mandrel can be pulled out of the plate thing easily? Is it all held in place by the tail stock? Seems to be the only way I can thing of but thought it was best to check :)

the morse taped goes into the headstock as a friction fit, the tailstock supports the other end via a live centre - but shouldn't need any pressure (and you really want to avoid any as it can cause fle and wreck the finish you get on the blank).

Take the Chuck off and you should see a hole in the threaded spindle , it goes in that hole :wink:

Also, if you have a thread protector for the thread that your chuck mounts on then put that onto the thread and then you won't have any problems getting the mandrell out of the morse taper fitting.
