Since Berea kits are the only ones that use a "B" mandrel I would start there. Also, their resellers sell "B" mandrels. Personally, I think most all mandrels are about equal in quality. Berea Resellers: , Pen Making Kits | Pen Turning Supplies | Wooden Pen Blanks , and Bear Tooth Woods . There may be others. I hold my mandrels with a collet chuck so I only purchase the rods.
Do a good turn daily!

You might want to look into the High Percussion B Mandrels from Bear Tooth Woods.
I have a High Precision A and it is excellent.

Bear Tooth Woods - High Precision Mandrel System - MT#2B Driver & "B" Shaft

They are really great folks to deal with too.
