Hey Corey, The turnings look pretty good. What lathe do you use? I’m in the market.

Hi Ryan,thanks for the kind words. I first got into turning about a year and a half ago. My lathe is a Penn State Ind. Mini Lathe:
It’s basically a copy of the Jet Mini… actually I think it is made from the same main casting as it is identical. Anyway, it’s a good first lathe if you don’t want to turn bowls. I have turned a lot of pens, boxes and other smaller vases etc. up to 4 i-5 inches around. I like it a lot. If you have any questions on it, let me know.

I would recommend the variable speed Jet Mini as a first lathe as well if your planning do do small turings. Pens are a lot of fun. Mine gets used all the time. You can hang on to it when your ready to step up and use it for small projects. I have an old Delta, 12” but it is kind of a pain to change speeds.

I think when I upgrade my lathe I think it will be this model. I like the features and it sells for around 400.00

Looks like a good choice. About $100 more than the Jet, bigger swing, pivoting head, etc….
