I don't know what you mean by mandrel is loose. Is it loose on the shaft? Is the shaft loose in the gears?
Please elaborate.

Bill, your picture is way too jittery to tell, but, first, you have put machine together wrong. You've got the second drive gear for the feed screw in backwards, you have the main drive gear on the mandrel shaft in backwards, and, it appears you are missing the end bearing.

For the loose mandrel there is a spindle bearing that isn't in place or is missing on the end. This is found on the arm that is on the right-side of the mandrill. It is used to support the end of the spindle. You called it a gate in your video. There should be a tapered shaft (spindle)on the mandrel by the looks of other machines on the web.

Bill, leave the direction of those gears alone for now. I may be wrong. Geez, this memory.
I will look at my B standard. But, your mandrel gear is in too far, and, your end gate bearing too loose.
