You can find a lathe that will meet your needs for little or lot of money. Do not forget about turning tools and sharpening supplies. You will also need a pen mandrel & barrel trimmer, sanding and finishing supplies to turn pens. If want to drill pen blanks on the lathe will need a drill chuck, drill press also works. You can use a bench vise or C-clamp to assemble pens many people think you need a pen press.

Depending upon style of pens will find many suppliers with all the gear you want or thing you need.
