    You mention both acrylic and epoxy in your title. Those are two very different things. Acrylic (like pen blanks) is a fairly soft plastic that cuts easily with HSS. A two-part epoxy used to fill cracks and inclusions can be quite hard. Yes, you can turn it using standard HSS, but it will dull the tools faster.
