We developed the Alto Flute Body Mandrel by special request for a flute repair guru, and we are pleased to be able to offer it to all repair technicians. If you have ever tried to do alto flute repair on a standard flute mandrel, then you know how crucial this piece of equipment is. This professional mandrel is made from precision ground tool steel. It features a rounded end tip and a threaded hole on the end to hold accessories, like the Flute Stabilizer attachment for easy polishing.
Secure the mandrel in a vice with the hex stock end for the most reliable grip that gives you 6” to chuck without damaging any of the workable area. A delrin stopper will keep the flute body from going too deep and hitting the hex stock or vice. Next time an alto flute comes into the shop, you'll be glad you have this custom mandrel for checking straightness, dent work, polishing, and burnishing on alto flutes.
