No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
I agree, if theres no one you can get with to learn, youtube is your friend. I dont have anyone to teach me but I watch a lot of videos. Yes Ive made mistakes along the way and thats why I'm yet to turn any of the high end pen kits. I'm almost there though!!
I'll snap a pic or two of my home made pen press and center drilling vice and post em for ya this afternoon when I get down to the shop.
As for the pen turning tutorial, I was going to do one myself but since I kinda do things a bit different, I passed. I guess different isnt bad so maybe I'll do one soon. Even if someone else posts one, I can at least show how to turn out nice pens without buying all the expensive pen specific tools. I'll be turning several orders next weekend so maybe I'll do one then.
