New and Hot - February 2018


New from Penn State Industries


No Press Pen Kits

Penn State Industries has just released the easiest pen kit in the world to make. You don't press the pen kit parts together, you just screw the threaded components together. This also means that you don't need a pen press and you won't crack any of your kits as you're putting them together. You also can mix and match blanks and pen kits and easily replace a defective pen tube.

The No Press Pen Kits come in three styles: the Comfort (7.5mm tubes), the Executive (10mm tubes), and the Diva (10mm tubes).

The price of the Comfort No Press Pen Kits start at $5.95.
The price of the Executive No Press Pen Kits start at $7.95.
The price of the Diva No Press Pen Kits start at $12.95.

New from Rockler


Wireless Speaker Kit

Rockler has released a wireless speaker kit which includes all of the necessary electronic components to build your own mini wireless speaker. Just build a speaker cabinet (think box or small hollow form) in the shape and material of your choice.

The speaker connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth-enabled device. The kit includes a single full-range speaker, a control pod with on/off button and USB port, and a USB cable, which is used to charge the internal battery.

The only downsides that I've seen are that it works only in mono mode (meaning no stereo) and you can't connect multiple units together.

Here is an example of one of the wood speaker enclosures from the Rockler web site.

The list price is $29.99

New from Tim Yoder


Elbo Lathe Extension for Short Bed and Mini Lathes

Finding a hollowing system for a short bed or mini lathe is very difficult. But now, Tim Yoder brings to market a mini-lathe extension enabling you to use the famous Elbo Tool on your mini-lathe. It also works for full size short bed lathes with swings up to 26 inches.

The Lathe Extension bolts to the bed of your lathe and provides an adjustable barrel mounted on a vertical shaft. The Elbo Tool bolts to this barrel allowing you to adjust for level on your lathe.

All the parts on this extension system are heavy-duty machined parts which are zinc-plated to resist rust. The Lathe Extension should fit most lathes with a conventional bed and gives a turner up to 10" more bed length for hollowing.

The price on the lathe extension is $99.00
