Over expansion will affect the run out and may cause damage to the mandrel. tension should not be kept for extended lengths of time and released when not in use to provide optimal life to mandrels.
Care should be taken when using water and solvents always wipe off the mandrels when not in use.
Delrin mandrel should not be used for rough turning as they are made for glueing and finishing only as delrin is a softer material that will wear down faster than metal, a black powder may come off the delrin mandrel when sanding.
These mandrels are consumables and should be replaced when worn out, show signs of extreme wear and/or broken, replacement screws are also available.
