Birthday Present Pen

 

My first lathe. Wow...I learned a lot on it. I mostly do smaller projects and I don’t really have the room for a larger floor stand model. So this little benchtop model served me well.

I wanted an upgrade. I wanted more control of the speed without always changing the belts. 

I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money.  The replacement lathe I chose is a Shop Fox 12” benchtop.

So to test it out, I made a few pens.  

I would say test successful!  My Brother-n-laws are going to love their pens!
