Question about a Taig for pens. I'm using a MidAmerican large bore for shafts and tinkering on butt caps...have removed bumpers and made a few cues bumperless. The taig lathe seems to be too slow for pen blank turning with a chisel. Is it? And where can a tool bar/tool rest assembly be purchased?
Can we see some of Todd or Chris' lathes set up for pens? Anyone?

Current set up:
a pair of Jet 1015VS
Jet 1221VS
MidAmericaPool Taig professional pool cue repair lathe....that somehow gets involved with pen blanks.
