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.
Drill bits that drill true
I use these bits mainly for center drilling of blanks for pens. They drill straight, clean holes and do not bust through the bottom and break the wood or acrylic blanks.
Great drill bits
I wish the set came in a better case. Hard to get bits in and out of flimsy plastic if that is how you have to store them. Not an issue if you have a case that you are restocking worn out bits in.
This set drills pen blanks like butter. The holes are perfect for my pens.
Five hole makers
I have use the bits and they cut great and I have had no problem with them.
LOVE them! Very Sharp! Cut like butter..
I have only used these for my Pen Turning, but they would be good for any job for a woodworker or Do-It-Yourselfer.
Great for making pens but will work for drilling any wood
Good for wood, acrylics not so much
These bits work well on wood pen blanks if you are drilling the exact hole size (not trying to expand an existing hole) but are likely to chip acrylics. Buy a good set of twist drill bits and start small and step up gradually to the size you want.
Used for drilling pen blanks and produced clean holes.
