Another option is to use this die holder in a morse taper drill chuck:

Ken, have you tried it? The only one I saw similar to this would not allow the pen blank to go in very far while threading.
That's the one I've been using for several years. Works fine.

I got mine elsewhere, but it looks just like that. Yes, the blank can only go in so far, but once I am in the depth of the die, I remove the holder and attach a regular bar, lock my lathe spindle, and contunie to thread as far as I like.

I've just been and collected mine.........cool, time to play.

Had to pay the tax and handling fees though Added almost 30 ( $38 )to the cost. Oh well....but still worth it though.

Thanks Joe

So, here is the mystery the IAP wants to solve:

Did Skiprat buy the tap and die to MAKE pens, or did he buy them to MAKE INTO pens??
