Make a Pen Press

403 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 6 comments »

Last week in my video showing my first turning project I showed you a Pen Press I made to press the parts of a turned pen together. I asked if you wanted to see a Pen Press How to video and the overall response was yes. So here you go. This is a great little jig for pen turners and those of you who are wanting to venture into pen turning. I hope you enjoy it. Part 1 Part 2

My first Turning Project

408 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 9 comments »

For a very long time now I have been wanting to learn how to turn on a lathe. Well recently I was able to purchase a lathe using a Gift card I won thanks to your votes. My first project, wow, well since I am a fan of pen turning, I thought that would be the place to start. So I turned a Bullet Pen. This is a 30 caliber bolt action bullet pen kit and man is it cool. I will be making more of these for sure. I really enjoyed turning and I can see where I will be doing a lot of it in the future a...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #24: The most UNIQUE drill press table you've ever seen. Drill, Baby! DRILLLLL!

724 days ago by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

Some homemade jigs just have to be called what they are… stinking amazing. This week we come back from our summer break with a vengance. And the drill press is in our sights once again! We’ve completed the “Drill Im-press Table” by adding some unique bit storage, and some attachments that allow you to turn spindles, knobs, even pens without a lathe. Add that to the innovative X-Y sliding table and milling features, downdraft dust collection, and the microadjustable ...

Silver Filigree Pen Project with vacuum chamber.

787 days ago by Schimmel | 2 comments »

This is a project I worked on where I took Sliver Filigree and worked it into a pen. The silver filigree was hand made 100%. I worked the filigree around the tube and then fixed it on to the tube. I then cast it in resin and turned as you wood any other pen. I learned a few things along the way. I did not pick a pen kit with enough meat on the bones so to speak for the tube. the filigree even as thin as I could get it was to tall and came through during the turning proce...

Homemade powertools #2: pen turning lathe prototype

1073 days ago by Sodabowski | 19 comments »

Hey guys! Back from the mountains (alas, too soon). First this quickie blog post about what happens when you order a pen turning mandrel without owning a lathe. Being a cheap skate, and a long-time reuse-recycle-minded guy, I of course built myself a wee lathe with all recycled parts: motor from an old printer (or photocopier, can’t really remember, I dismantled so many of both…), pulleys and timing belt also from reclaimed hardware, so for the bearings (hidden in the block ...

Dovetail Pen Turning #2: Attempt one - Failure but learning opportunity

1666 days ago by SNSpencer | 2 comments »

Finished up the first set of pen tubes for the Dovetail Pen endevor. Not worthy of a finished pen and now I will need to get a pen disassembly kit to salvage the parts. Oh well, I need one anyway. Problem: Since I don’t currently have a blank drilling jig the center holes were not perfectly inline with the line of the dovetail joint. This leads to pattern allignment issues on the finished pen.Solution: Looks like I will invest in a pen blank drilling jig or make one. (I need on...
