Shawn … Thanks … I’m considering this set of tools for pen-turning and small projects.

Just a comment: It looks like your lathe is way too high, which puts you at a real disadvantage, especially with carbide tools. If you can get the lathe on something lower (so the tailstock is about even with you elbow), you’ll find your control of the tool is much better.

Thanks guys, Bob the chuck I am using is Utility Grip 4 Jaw Chrome Lathe Chuck System: includes 2 jaws and FREE 8” Jumbo Flat Jaw Item #: CUG3418CCX from Penn State Industries. I like it a lot it came with allot and jumbo jaws for about 90 bucks. cant beet the deal!
Gerry your right the lathe is to high. It is currently sitting on top of the table saw station until I build a stand for it. I should start the stand withing a couple of weeks, and will be doing a video on it’s construction.
Thanks again
