    At the ripe old age of 64 years I’ve only just started pen turning and thoroughly enjoying it. As I’ve managed to bust and crack a number of pen blanks during the turning process, I’m very interested in your tips in this regard. Thanks. Lourens

    Hello I’m Harold .
    Who would’ve thought pen turning was a thing ?
    About three weeks ago. I saw Rockar had classes in woodworking, a Long in these classes was pen turning.
    I had wanted to get a metal lathe for quite some time but find it quite terminating, so thinking a Woodlathe would be a good way to start, I started a new adventure in pen truning. Wow this is fun! So now I’m hooked.
    A few thousand dollars later, A dozen pens under my belt, people are asking to buy my pens from me.
    I did not do this to sell pins. And I can’t keep hundreds of pen, so I’ve been having fun giving them away.
    After reading all the hard work you did on your articles I just wanted to say thank you.

    I just purchased a Wen 3420 8 x 12 benchtop lathe to learn to start turning pens and vapor atomizer tanks to sell for a charity I founded to help people stop smoking and the majority are resin blanks. My lathe is variable speed 750 to 3200 and I have purchased a mandrel which wont help me for my drip tips because of the size of the hole but I have purchased every accessory in the book including the barracuda chuck system and a complete pack of tailstocks as well as the MT1 pen mandrel made by Wen. I must be doing something wrong because with the slightest touch of a tool to the resin blank it stops turning. I am frustrated and am at a loss. Please is there anything you can think of that I am doing wrong? Please email me with RESIN BLANK TURNING HELP in the subject if you can Im desperate i have orders pilling up and I had to stop taking them which means no money is being made for my charity treasury.
