Subsequent chapters and projects add more complexity, techniques, and tools, teaching readers to progress from basic pen-turning kits to developing their own free designs.These pen-turning projects will also develop the reader’s skills with using and building tools. The Pen Turner’s Bible discusses spiraling jigs past and present, and demonstrates their use on five pens with detailed instructions. A spiral jig allows you how to make the popular rope design, spiral grooved, as well as straight fluted or faceted pens. The metal lathe can do just about everything a wood lathe can, and it can also support a wood lathe with tooling made on it plus allow thread cutting and other operations not easily done on a wood lathe. Kleinhenz also presents his own original designs for unique tools and jigs that the reader can make at home — tools that are as good or better than commercial tools.
