Love those vintage lathes! I’d love to have one in the shop…but I sure as heck don’t have the mechanical skills to keep it running. Guess I could just park it somewhere for cool looks like Smitty is doing! :)

You guys, how difficult is it to turn these fancy pens? I mean, do you have to own the pen press, tube insertion tool, and other specialty jigs? For anyone that has turned many pens…how many do ya screw up? Just the first few, and never again?
