    HI

    Hello folks, hope you are all keeping well and keeping busy.

    just got into pen turning recently and had a few "successes"

    all the gear and no idea

    but progressing nicely,

    bought a pen mandrel from axminster a few years back...in drawer and forgotten about....only went and bought another from T.R.

    then found the original, so got 2 ...hmmm might be useful, can never have enough gadgets can we.

    apart from one (very) small gouge, i've been using my other full sized turning tools but havnt hit any problems with them.

    finally ...oooo aint corian a devil to turn...30 trips to the grinder tio re-edge the tools
