EZ Glide Pen Turner's 2-Piece Toolrest Set

Added October 15, 2018 by Tim

Very nice tool rests

"These allow the tools to slide very easily while turning. I have big hands so having the deep hollow to ride my finger on works very well for me. The shorter tool rest was a life saver when I was asked to make some snowman Christmas ornaments, it was just the right length to do the job."

Complete 4pc Precision Sharpening System

Added September 23, 2018 by David F.

Great Quality and easy installation

"I have just recently received my lathe and pen turning equipment. Having reviewed Barry Gross's DVD's on pen turning, I quickly realized I was going to need a grinder and sharpening system for lathe chisels. I purchased a Rikon 8" low speed grinder & stand through another woodworking supplier. Upon receipt of the sharpening system, I quickly realized the stand would be of no use. So I mounted the grinder & sharpening system to a work bench. I have enjoyed woodworking for over 50-yrs which have been limited to flat work. Pen turning will be a new & fun adventure for me. Had no issues with instructions & mounting. Comes with experience. Haven't had the opportunity to sharpen any lathe chisels yet but have used the grinder. I don't for see any problems."

Added September 17, 2018 by April

Makes captive rings easy

"After trying to make captive rings with a small skew chisel, I decided to get these tools. The price was good and the tools are great. I have used 2 of the 3 and both worked great. Definitely makes captive rings easy and they are still sharp."

Wood Lathe

"The wood lathe faceplate is great just haven't tried it yet. I would like an explanation as to why you would send a faceplate with a 1 inch tpi and a chuck with a 1 1/4 thread. Then I had to send for an adapter to make the chuck work!!!!"

Barracuda4 Lathe Chuck System

Added September 2, 2018 by Joe B

Great Deal

"At this price this beats any other chuck I have found. It is a beast and a bargain. Just Price a Oneway or Nova with the same sets of jaws added on. As far as not being able to reverse this chuck, I tap a hole on each side of the adapter collar and use loctite when I install it on the chuck. I have used this method on the two barracuda chucks I own with no problems."

Variable Speed Midi Lathe Conversion Kit: for Turncrafter , Jet and Delta Lathes

Added May 27, 2018 by Larenzo Wolfe

Should’ve done this upgrade a long time ago.

"I finally broke down and upgraded my Turncrafter Pro to variable speed and I was very pleased with how easy it was to install as well as what a difference having variable speed makes. I also added a reversing switch take nag the idea from a previous review and I’ve already seen the benefits of that while sanding bowls. I’m still getting used to having the power switch on the left side but it hasn’t caused any problems."

Variable Speed Midi Lathe Conversion Kit: for Turncrafter , Jet and Delta Lathes

Added March 7, 2018 by james

Good motor for many other applications MOTOR SHAFT SPEED 1470 - 3050 RPM

"I adapted this to my mill / drill machine. it works great !!! When deciding to purchase this kit I looked all over to see the RPM OF THE MOTOR SHAFT. Could NOT find it anywhere. Was told the spindle speeds when used on various pen lathes, but nothing on the motor itself. WHEN IT ARRIVED THE PACKAGE JUST SAID MOTOR SPEED 1700 RPM. I have a digital tachometer so set it up and checked it out. IT RUNS FROM 1470 RPM TO 3050 RPM. You can use these numbers to calculate your special needs. Hope This Helps someone along the way. I ended up with variable speeds on the mill from 335 to 1440 RPM."

Mandrel Jam Chuck System

Jam Chuck Mandrel

"Exactly as advertised. Works great turning anything larger than a pen blank. Pen blanks must be turned before brass tube is installed, as mandrel is too large a diameter to fit inside pen's brass tube."
