    Steel--$10.00
    Make sure you buy the cutting mandrel not the expander mandrel

    I was under the impression that Don's mandrels were cut on an eccentric, and thats how the fine adjustment functioned?
    I may have misunderstood, but I don't think they work with a regular mandrel.

    I think that you misunderstood. His tool had the eccentric built into the tool.

    I dont know if my info is still current, but at one point Kelblys was the only place you could buy the pumpkin or parts.

    Butch, isn't the mandrel the eccentric part?

    That's how I've understood it to be...... and looking at the tool (pix only, I don't have one) it nearly has to be an offset mandrel

    The mandrel is not, not, not eccentric.
    The mandrel is mounted in the bottom portion of the tool and the mandrel is mounted off center by virtue of the manner in which the tool is build. Depth of cut is controlled by turning the bottom portion while holding the top and then locking the two together. I have one set up for .30 caliber and one set up for 6mm. They were not cheap but they cut better than anything else “out there”.
    Thank you, that clarifies it nicely now I can see how the eccentricity is built into the tool body

    The mandrel is ground eccentric. Big end has a different center line than the small end.

    Don Neilsen’s neck turner

    As the picture shows, the tool body moves the mandrel closer to or further from the cutter.
    End of story.

    the picture
    shows a mark on one part, and a series of marks
    on the other part.
    it SHOWS nothing MOVING closer..
    it is just a stationary picture.
    ( but i have one, and t works well)
