I think I may have solved the problem: a custom powerwrap hand rod-wrapper (which will allow me to do the normal thread wrapping) with my Dremel (variable-speed) set up on a platform with chuck (rubber lab stoppers, glued back to back; I've used this several times and it grips the blank very well but is very gentle). In this fashion, I get a wrapper for the ages without the exhorbitant price and can use it to shape cork, to boot. Looks like $150; pricey, but worth it for a complete wrapper/cork lathe unit.
