  • Small Turning Projects

    For those begginers in woodturning, I have made a couple tutorials for pocket watches and pen & pencil sets. http://www.hoistman.com/HoistMan/WatchTurn.html http://www.hoistman.com/HoistMan/PenTurn.html

    Nice job Dan on the pen turning tutorial. Lots of pics and good descriptions of whats going on in each photo.

    Anyone who has thought about giving pen turning a try should look at Dan's tutorial, and you'll see how easy it can be, AND, that you can do it w/o a big outlay in cash for special tools, not counting the mandrel.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

        Bob, the mandrel I use I picked up at Woodcraft on sale for $10. Pen kits can be had for $1.50 and up. Really is a cheap hobby and not a lot of time needed to show results. LOL

            Oooo Thanks PapaDan! I received a Jet Pen Lathe for Christmas. Not the most powerful lathe I know. Your tutorial looks like it's easy to follow. I'll print it out and give 'er a spin.

                pete, don't need much power for small turnings like this. I run mine at 675 rpm because that is the slowest it goes. LOL
