  • 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.

        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
