I don’t turn pens but I got a lesson how to do it from a fellow Lumberjock, Rustic, Tuesday. So I made him these accessories to drill the blanks in the drill press and to press the ends into the tubes in the drill press too.
The aluminum piece goes in the chuck to push in the parts
The little corner block with the punch is for centering the hole on 3/4 Square blanks. Just hit the punch with a hammer and there is good center mark to drill to.
The plywood angle plate holes it truly vertical to drill a hole straight in the blank.
Just made from pieces laying around the shop!..........no finish on anything.
