Mount the Mini Wheel and Mandrel on the right side of the Foredom.
The Wheel and Mandrel need to run counter clockwise.
The wheel works best if you run it at least 3450rpm.

I have been experimenting with different small wheels to add even finer texture to Intarsia pieces. These mini wheels are very similar to the Wonder Wheel. I used this wheel on Albert Einstein's fine facial wrinkles.
The smaller size made it easier to see what I was doing. I was able to add much finer lines.The Mini Wheel does not replace the Wonder Wheel for texturing large areas.
It does wear down more quickly than the larger Wonder Wheel. I used a wheel dresser
to sharpen the wheel to a "V".Mandrel
