Now that summer is coming to a close, isn’t it time for a little you?

You spent a fortune on back-to-school clothes and supplies for the kids. You’ve shelled out for mountains of food for barbecues to entertain friends and families. What about the cost of all that gas to visit in-laws?

Now it’s time to treat yourself.

LeBlond has an end-of-summer sale where you can receive up to 40% off list price on K.O. Lee Expanding Mandrels, indispensable machine tools that will make your machining work more productive and precise.

K.O. Lee Expanding Mandrels are a work-holding tool for production lines, tool rooms and home workshops. A novice or veteran machinist can use a full complement of these tools to reduce cost and the need to stock a separate mandrel for each job.

With the general-purpose sets of arbors and sleeves, you have five units ranging from the KMO to the KM4. These sets have a range of expansion from 3/8” (9.53mm) to as wide as 2 ½” (139.7mm). With the competition’s mandrels, a machinist might need to buy as many as eight sets to attain this range.

K.O. Lee Expanding Mandrels will hold work from thin sleeves and bushings to heavy castings and forgings. The tools are primarily used for grinding, turning and milling. The Expanding Mandrels are “Best-In-Class” and a must-have for any machinist.

The mandrels bear the quality and superior workmanship consistent with the K.O. Lee brand, a subsidiary of the Cincinnati-based supplier LeBlond Ltd. LeBlond is part of a great machine tool tradition dating back as far as 1887.
