Question New to turning in the Wellsboro area.

Hello,

I am new to turning Pens and i am looking for a few things to get me started. I need to find a place to get kits (bushings with hardware) all I can find so far is the slimline kits. I dont have a drill press yet so I am looking for pre-drilled blanks. If any one knows where to get them please let me know. If you are in the wellsboro area please drop me a line.

If you don't have a drill press,then just drill your blanks on your lathe,it would save you considerable money then buying predrilled blanks and it is real easy.

Dollis,
Welcome to the forum. Along with Penn State, check out Craft Supplies, Berea Hardwoods, Woodcraft, Packard Woodworks. Don't limit yourself to just one. Each company carries some things the others don't. Don't limit yourself to just pens either. You'll never have a good turning addiction if you do.....

I second what firhawk says. Pens are great, but finding out what else is hidden inside a tree is... great too.

Here is another neat little site for pen supplies.
