The pen presses all arrived today! With the funds you donated, I bought three pen presses from CSUSA. There was a little left over because the shipping was less than I thought it would be so I applied it to the jacobs chucks I bought to go with the 4 jaw chucks I bought from Taig. Woodchipper also sent a Woodcraft version, which we will use at the center instead of the lever press we have been struggling with. It is very hard for them to control. Thanks to you all, my turners will have a very happy new year indeed.

So they will have pen presses, chucks and jacobs chucks for drilling on the lathe, and a set of carbide tools my husband and I made them. I'm putting together some pen kits and bushings I have in my shop. I don't turn slims much anymore, and I have a bunch I can divide among them.

The jacob's chucks just arrived too....and I made a small mistake! I should have read the listing a little more closely. These are 3/4" chucks! They are BIG. Not really a problem, but a bit of a shock! I may swap two of them out for the half inch ones on the two drill presses.

Way to go! Again, you are doing the work for others that I cannot do. Happy to help (please remember that if other needs come to light). Tell me some kits that they use. I may have extra TBC bushings that I can send you. I also have dozens of refills that I usually donate to others here. I would be happy to send your way. My mom (now 75) used to volunteer at the Queens Lighthouse teaching folks to type and dance. Mu parents attended many of their galas together.

Hello SBW. Yesterday I sent a small variety of chisels...they need a little sharpening and should provide good service. I hope they help.

Thank you so much Frank. I'm sure they will get plenty of use.

Sharon and the ACBVI turners.

Small variety of chisels indeed. There were 11 tools in that box, Frank! Thank you so much. One question. One of the small skews looks like it might be carbide? I just need to know because it requires a CBN wheel to sharpen if it is. I have CBN wheels here at home, so it isn't a problem, but I don't want to give it to someone who can't sharpen it.

I honestly do not know if it is or isn't. Can you post a close up and maybe someone can help identify it.

That particular Skew is carbide. Yes it's from that set. I do not remember everything I sent as I gathered what I have not been using.
