A well made tool

I purchased the full set of mandrels after seeing the Youtube video on how they are used. These tools are well thought out and solve the issues inherent in other oval link-making tools. No more fighting the tool or time spent laboriously correcting issues caused by poor mandrel design.

Great Tool

You know I must be honest and say when these mandrels first came out I said to myself that tool is not for me I don’t really make paperclip chain. But I love Chris’s imagination, creativity and ability to make any tool needed for the situation. If I don’t have the needed tool I have always been creative enough to improvise and get the job done. Well here I am now buying this AWESOME tool for a class I am taking and I have to say it WORKS GREAT !! It saves so much time and is easy to use. As ALL of Chris’s tools it is so well made and I appreciate the step down giving you 3 options in one tool. Its so nice having the right tool for the job. Thanks Chris for your creative mind and helping us makers be more efficient.

Great quality mandrels to add uniqueness to my work!

I love these mandrel!
They are quality, brushed steel that feel so good in the hands. It’s great to have a different shaped mandrel to make my chains unique.
