I was using padauk and cheap quality gouges, so I had a few catches, but the motor torque is low enough that for someone new to turning those instances were not a scary experience.
Overall, the fit and function of the lathe is great and I'm very happy with this purchase.

I would recommend the Nova G3 Comet II Reversible Chuck Item #: 44597
After installing the jaws on it, you can screw it onto your lathe and start turning
To use the lathe for drilling the pen blanks is fairly expensive. I bought a Nova G3 Woodturning Chuck and a set of Nova Pen Jaws, you’ll also need a chuck to hold the drill bit, I bought a Nova 9018 Keyed Chuck which I don’t recommend for this lathe, the spindle is too long and had to be cut to fit the tailstock.
If you are new to pen turning, I recommend this web site for really good instructions, Google pen turning tutorial.
The initial costs to turn pens is pretty steep but one you’ve made the investment, they’re fairly inexpensive to make.
