Please give more explanation ... what do you mean by "slightly off" in this statement:

"was slightly off at the tailstock end"

Do you mean that the end of the mandrel is not centered on the live center point ?

You have actually made two changes at once:
1) replaced the mandrel
2) added a mandrel saver

Better troubleshooting practice is to change one thing at a time and note the improvement or lack thereof.
