I agree with rich. I use a table top drill press. And I would suggest that you start turning wood pens first. Acrylic pens are a bit harder to turn. Pluse the blanks are more $. You need to watch it when you get down to the sleeve, its easy to chip off the blank, especially with the acrylic. Pen turning is a lot of fun. I like to let the grain talk to me when turning, to bring out the grain nicer.
