No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
Looks like your gettin there, at least for slimlines. When you want to turn something besides a slimline, you'll need to buy the drill bit, bushings and rod for your end mill again.
Okay, heres the pics of my home made pen making gadgets.
This is my pen press. The lower piece is just a piece of scrap oak plywood maybe 3" in diameter with a 1/4" thick piece of HDPE plastic epoxied to it. The upper press portion is an elevator bolt that I picked up at the local hardware for less than a dollar. I epoxied a sleeve over the threads because I didnt know if the threads would damage my drill chuck or not and epoxied a piece of HDPE plastic on it as well. The plastic isnt neccissary if you dont have any but at least put a piece of wood on the elevator bolt so you dont damage your pen parts.
This is my center drilling vice. Its just two small pieces of 2X4 with a 45* V-notch cut in both sides and then two carriage bolts with wing nuts. I think I might have a dollar in this.
