I have them, they work great. Love the fact that bushings you use for turning the pen fit on them keeping everything aligned. Nothing to wear out they should last forever.

Try the CSUSA ones; I will send you the funds via PP. My treat. Then you can compare them. If you accept my offer, send me the amount with tax and shipping of cost and I will send you the funds for a set.

Tony, I am forever amazed and grateful for the generosity of the members of IAP. I'll PM you.

Thank you so much for your generous offer.

Sharon, You said 3 turners with lathes at home? I'll match Tony's offer for another one. Any takers for number 3?

I don't know what to say. These turners will be more than grateful! My husband is currently making handles for carbide tools for them. I already ordered the cutters. They were able to get the 3 piece pen turning set from Peachtree (small spindle gouge, parting tool, and half inch skew) that usually sells for 39 dollars for fifteen during black friday. I just got each of them one of those 20 dollar chucks.

The owner of Taig tools gave me some scrap bar stock for Jack to make the tools, and I will make handles for them.

If someone can tell me how, I'll post some videos of my turners.

I am so incredibly proud of them!


A huge thank you from me and my turners.

Sharon...what you do is incredible. Tony L. and Mr. Vic. are all heart for stepping up....
Would like to add in. PM your email and I'll gift a paypal.

I have a few Skews and maybe a few other chisels that are dull and I'm not using. If you can use them (have them sharpened) I'll gladly send them to you.

Thanks to the generosity of IAP members, we now have pen presses for all our new home turners.

Thank you all so much. You have no idea how much this means to these turners. Especially Manny, who is totally blind, and just got his own lathe. The others have SOME vision, if not much, but Manny is completely blind. I have some videos of them, but have no idea how to post a video on the forum.
