Smaller tools for tiny turnings
Pinnacle Cryogenic Pen Set
When it comes to turning pens and other small-scale projects, I want a tool that feels more like a pocket knife than a long-handled turning tool. The compact tools in the Pinnacle Cryogenic Pen Set are just the right size for turning pens, bottle stoppers, and tops on my mini-lathe. (It’s worth pointing out that the three-piece set costs about as much as one of the larger turning tools.) As with the full-sized tools, the cryogenically treated steel stays sharp two to three times longer than high-speed steel, which means more turning between sharpenings.
