    Finding a Bene 34.7 mandrel in France will be difficult. Getting one transported to north east Europe will be quite costly, so I'd recommend building a mandrel, which isn't difficult and a lot cheaper then searching Europe for a bit of metal that will cost a small fortune to ship to Latvia.

    Contact Bruce Farr and see if he'll sell you dimensions and scantlings for the stick, both of which you'll need, if you don't want it to snap.
