Default 1980 Shopsmith Mark 5

I am a beginner pen turner and I just got a kit from WoodCraft with a mandral in it.
I have a 1980 Shopsmith Mark 5 and I do not know if my mandrel will work with the lathe attached to it. Does anybody have any answers????

It can - you might need the adapter - or run of the jacobs chuck - PSI is where I picked up my adapter for the shopsmith.

The above link has a good photo of the adapter - in a pinch the jacobs chuck can be used - but there might be some wobble.

you can use the shopsmith 1/4" router chuck to hold your mandrel. that would leave the drill chuck free for drilling. if your mandrel would wobble in the drill chuck i would toss it as it would not be any good for drilling. FWIW
