   Like most woodworking projects, before you can get to the final result, prep work and jigs play an important role, before the actual turning process begins. The biggest attribute to lathe turning is that finished results can typically be attained faster with almost instant gratification. This WoodRiver Pen Drilling Vise with 7mm Drill Guide & Stop Collar combo aids in that process for the prep work, especially for the novice turner, or those who may not have a drill press to begin the wood turning creative adventure.

    What sizes?

    Bad description on this webpage, as, even under "details" I do not see where it says what sizes come in the kit. And also, let's see a list of all the other sizes of the insert shaft that WoodCraft sells for them.

    A Thing of Beauty

    You just have to love Whiteside. They've taken a category in which there were a series of ordinary options and created an extraordinary one. This mill is a thing of beauty. Used in a drill press, it is accurate, cuts beautifully (allowing glue-up of multiple segments / species easily) and will remain sharp nearly forever. I'm using it to produce pens in batches for the Freedom Pens program (pens for active duty military personnel overseas) and it is a huge time-saver to boot.

    Not so good..

    Poor quality as the trimmer itself dulled after only 8-9 pen blanks.. I have since ordered a carbide cutter to replace this one.

    Saves time

    This kit saves me the time of having numerous barrel trimmers. One kit, in its own case, makes pen barrel trimming easy. Saves a lot of room in the toolbox.

    Works OK

    I used this on 4 pen blanks. It dulled very quickly.

    Great product, but...

    Back orders. I'm sick of them. Watch your inventory more carefully.
