Ed I have turned a pepper mill or two. Actually 3 sets. If I had it to do over again I would buy one brand of mill instead of two or three different ones. Don't ask me why I did but not knowing I bought one from Rockler, one from Woodcraft and one from CSUSA. I bought one set and it took 4 different forsnter bits. Another took 3. I buy from CSUSA the deluxe ones on page 92 because they only take two bits and are easy to do. Your lathe should do fine. I just made a salt and pepper mill for the kids to match their salad bowl set that I just posted. I made them a salt mill also because they do use sea salt.
