Thank you George for taking the time to "de-mistify" this very fine aspect of advanced pen making. Good stuff all around. Certainly belongs in the IAP library.

Nice tutorial George...definitely something I want to try in the future.

I'm a relatively new member and I recently followed you're turning between centers tutorial and I'm loving the Beall collet chuck and other items I purchased after that tutorial.
