Historical information
A mandrel (/ˈmændrɪl/; also mandril or arbor) is one of the following:

* a round object against which material can be forged or shaped; or

* a flanged or tapered or threaded bar that grips a workpiece to be machined in a lathe. A flanged mandrel is a parallel bar of a specific diameter with an integral flange
towards one end, and threaded at the opposite end. Work is gripped between the flange and a nut on the thread. A tapered mandrel (often called a plain mandrel) has a
taper of approximately 0.005 inches per foot and is designed to hold work by being driven into an accurate hole on the work, gripping the work by friction. A threaded
mandrel may have a male or female thread, and work which has an identical thread is screwed onto the mandrel.
