Aloha Sako, have the bracelet mandrel made up in hardwood to theshape and taper you desire. Kind regards, Rex Steele Merten in wint'ry Australia
I'm looking for an oval bracelet mandrel to sell in Hawaii. It
has to have a total circumference at the fat end to accommodate a
9.5" piece of metal.
If it can be a hard wood, check a hardware store or industrialsupplier. Ask to look at the replacement pick ax handles. They aregenerally oval shaped & taper on the pick end of the handle. I don'thave one handy, so I don't know if they'll fit your circumferencerequirement.
Sako, You might try Phillipe in West Palm Beach, FL (561) 471-0890. I bought a steel oval tapered mandrel (12-inches circumference atlarge end) from him a year or so ago, and I think he had more.
