Our penturning friends may be the only ones to appreaciate this: After five years and hundreds of pens, my pen press broke. So, I salvaged a few parts from old press. Added $4 slide clamp from Harbor Freight. Cheater bar is 1/2 copper pipe left over from old project. Turned handle out of mystery wood from a pallet that came from South America. Plywood base out of my scrap bin.
Beats spending $50 for new pen press.
Thanks for looking.
