Pen Making Starter Set with Turncrafter Commander 10in. Variable speed Midi Lathe

Added January 31, 2019 by Elton M

Variable speed Starter Kit

"While I am not new to woodworking or lathe work, I have been interested in trying my hand at pen making for sometime. I found the 10" variable speed lathe starter kit to be all I had hoped for and more. It runs almost silently and the variable speed is a dream. This is a great piece of equipment that runs beautifully right out of the box."

Jet Duplicator w/ DVD

Added December 3, 2018 by Michael R

Works, but could be much better

"Used the duplicator to make three sets of large chessmen. Made the templates from plexiglass with two chess pieces on each template, but found a little difficult to mount as the ridge on the grip plate forces the template to be at an angle. Also the screws on the mount are not in an even reflected pattern, so you can't flip over the template and use it to make just the piece on the right end! In addition, had to replace the thumb screw for securing the cutter with a smaller screw so could get closer to the right end of the turning."

PenPal Pen Making Lathe Starter Set

Don't be fooled by its size

"I bought this lathe kit as I was interested in turning pens to supplement my knife business. I own a full size lathe but it's way too big for turning pens. First off I was concerned about the speed and size of this lathe. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I used it and found it able to handle just about any pen blank I could throw at it. I've turned stabalized maple and other woods on it without any problems. The kit comes with everything you'll need to get started. Of course once you get started turning pens you'll add more items onto your offerings to customers. I sell my knives to an international market and with my contacts I expect to be shipping my pens internationally too. Great starter set up!"

Lathe Mounted Fluting Guide with Router

Added December 15, 2017 by Terrel

I can now do the FANCY stuff

"Took a bit to set up...(pictures are better that the words) just look close. This add on fits my lathe. I like how quick it goes on and off my lathe. And contrary to everyone wining about it coming with a router... I love that this add on came with it's own router, That fits and works very well in all directions and BECAUSE IT HAS ITS OWN DEDICATED ROUTER THERE IS VERY LITTLE SET UP TIME.... THAT IS SO NICE.... That feature alone has made this add on tool pay for its self already. Plus when I put flutes on a custom tool or handle I'm asking $5 per handle, what's nice is I sell more handles with flutes that without.... You can add any 1/4 inch shank bits to the router for custom flutes."

Jet Duplicator

"I love this thing along with the duplicator template! I've always wanted to turn chess pieces ever since I was a kid. Made a set for my oldest grandson for Christmas this year along with a board and storage (Maple and Walnut). I found it simple to use. The DVD really helped with set up. Speaking of set up, once it's done for this project you are dedicated. I have another lathe for other projects, but if you do not, remember the time commitment. I kept it on until I was completely done with everything, start to finish, in case I screwed up a piece. Luckily I didn't."

Best coil winding lathe ever

"With some modifications, this micro lathe makes an excellent coil winding machine. The tail stock is completely removed, a 1/2" plywood face plate is bolted to the machine's metal face plate and a long machine bolt is added to the wood plate's center, to allow mounting pickup bobbins. No winding machine is viable without an accurate turn counter, and the addition of a Red Lion digital optical counter turns this wood lathe into a superb coil winding machine."
