Rating Difficult to work with, and one major flaw
 
I found this mandrel to be very slippery to work with - you wrap your wire around one size and it slips up and down two sizes. Also, the grooved edge puts a flat edge on your wire, so if you want to make a round ring - as most of us do - the groove destroys the ring. You can get around this by making sure the groove is on the bead size of the wrap but, again, the wire slips and it is hard to do. I would go for a textured surface mandrel (if one exists), without a groove.

I was sorry to see that something had made a deep scratch on the bottom numbers of this mandrel when I got it. It evidently happened before they packed it because it was well protected in shipping. It's in the large numbers so I told Auntie's that I would not bother with returning it. I will go ahead and use it. I therefore feel I can't give it a lower star rating.

I am so happy with my purchase. It is sturdy and works well for my intended purpose of making wire rings. This is my first ring mandrel and I considered paying $15 to $20 for s metal one because when I read reviews for other plastic mandrels ($6 to 10 dollar range) I found that they were reviewed as not being sturdy, not a problem with this one. This is a steal for a great tool and the shipping was incredibly reasonable, under $2.

I really like this ring mandrel. I also purchased one from somewhere else that I paid almost $40 for and I do not like it as good as I do this one. It is very light weight and you can read the numbers on it better. I use this one to make my rings with. I would suggest this for anyone and thinking about buying one for a friend.

I am making adjustable 6 and 9 wire rings that start out at size 2 or 3 and open up to fit an elephant's toe (well,almost). The main problem is to keep the ring round as the wire is stretched. Not only does the mandrel do this but it also produces an accurate size measurement quickly for sales at shows and festivals. I have bought two just in case, and the budget price made it practical to do so. Your quick shipment made it even better! Thank you.

I love this mandrel. I am a beginner and I was very pleased that it was so inexpensive. I ordered two at the same time, as I read somewhere the numbers may wear off in time (don't know if that is true). Anyway I like the fact that it is light and very affordable and I would highly recommend it.

I think this mandrel is a great deal for someone just starting to make rings. I don't see any reason why one would need to spend a lot of money buying a metal mandrel when you are just starting out. This one works just fine.

I bought this mandrel to teach myself how to make rings. I made a few for myself and also a few for other people. it has paid for itself about 4 times now (even shipping)!!! The only draw back is that after so much banging and clanging the plastic begins to wear away and flake off... I am going for a steel one next time!!! And don't forget the finger gauges!!!

Questions and Answers
Q: Is this mandrel completely round? Or does it have an indent on the backside? I'm not sure what one customer is commenting about "a grooved edge." I am looking for a ring mandrel that has an recess on the backside to help hold beads in place when wire wrapping certain kinds of rings. I already have one mandrel that is completely round and do not want another.
Asked by: - 1/20/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: I believe the customer commenting on the "grooved edge" was talking about the indent. This ring mandrel does have that recess for exactly the purpose you were describing: it helps holds beads in place while you are working with the wire to create rings.
