Well, Hank, thanks for taking the time to give a good explanation of it all. You have convinced me to give it a try. I promise if I like it I won't become a over zealous promoter like a lot of x-smokers! I'm an ex-smoker and I don't preach to anyone but my wife. I have to kiss her!

Eazis1, sorry for butting in on you thread. This is good info we are getting though. For bottle stoppers I started using the one Arizona Silhouette sales. He now sales two sizes of stopper. With an extra bushing you can turn both sizes using the same mandrel. I haven't tried the mini-stoppers yet. Would like to.

I'm not sure I understand the question. There are bottle stopper mandrels. Not sure I can post the link here but go to PSI or Arizona Silhouette and do a search on bottle stopper or mandrels.

I personally hate using the pen mandrel with rubber spacers for duck calls. The rubber will give and leave you with an out of round call... I made a variation of Wades pin lock mandrels (http://www.webfootcustomcalls.com/to.../tool_mand.htm) and haven't looked back.

The who - J. Collazzo is a member here that made some mandrels a while back. The what - is still a mystery.

I am jcollazo! Jarheaded is correct in noting the what part.

I'm not making mandrels right now... too many other irons in the fire. If there is enough interest I may be persuaded to make up a quick tutorial on making your own using a wood lathe, collet chuck and die.

But not this week
