Default Hello from Baltimore, Maryland

Hi, I have been a longtime fountain pen collector and have been interested in turning and making my own. I just received a lathe to turn my own and I have NO idea where to start. I would also like to find someone or a group of people in the area to learn from!

Welcome to the madness Sue.
Check out the library, top of the page in blue. Great info in there

We travel to Maryland about 4 to 5 times a year, maybe we can get together sometime

Hi,

I'm just a little too far away to be of much practical help (Harrisburg, PA).

I did a post some time ago about choosing some If the 'other' stuff you need to turn pens.

Maybe you'll find it helpful.
