Is anyone selling the rotating jigs for these? I'd rather buy one that works than have to engineer it.
Nope
Incorrect. Mike Shortness is 3D printing and selling the rotary jigs. Granted you can make one yourself if you so desire. Here's his video of it in action:

I stand corrected.... Didn't find anything when doing research before designing and building mine.

Thanks

Hey, no problem! I know it's a fairly simple design, but for those who would rather pay than put the time into making one, it's an ($45.00) option.

In my experience, this is not a realistic expectation. FedEx Smartpost has only one redeeming feature -- it's cheap for the shipper -- and their delivery estimates are about as reliable as a chocolate watch.
You had to post this. You jinxed me. Just got an update and the new estimate is next Saturday which means Monday which means I lose a weekend.
Sorry. At least I gave you two days in which you could prepare for the disappointment (such as stocking up on chocolate, amboyna burl blanks, baby back ribs, more amboyna burl blanks, etc.)

After going to MPG I realized that a lot of pen turners only turn pens. They don't have access to "real" woodworking shop with things like table saws. I would assume most only have a lathe and a drill press. Heck some may even not have that and buy predrilled blanks.

Well that was disappointing. after one day mine is going back. it worked initially and I burned about a half dozen tests. It stopped being recognized by the computer, tried it on another but no luck. I'm glad I got it from amazon. I'll have to decide if I want to try another of the same or get the newer Bluetooth model.

Well me sacrificing one of those amboyna burl blanks over the weekend must have made a difference and that scan on Friday saying it went back to CA was wrong and instead it went 3/4 across the country over the weekend and is sitting outside Columbus only 200 miles away.

Now its saying its going to delivered Friday. I think it may get here before then but don't want to jinx it.

AND YOU BETTER NOT ALSO

Ok engraver just got here. And I now understand why people can have issues with FedEx smartpost.

Here is the journey of my package. Notice it crossed the Ohio/PA border 5 times in the last 3 days.

I had heard that the various shipper's automated system that have trouble reading the addresses on the labels and sometimes read the return address and start to send it back to where it came from but then that hub reads it correctly and sends back in the right direction.

Ok done with my mini rant got to get this hooked up.
