Pen-making Accessories (Lathe)

We should have the following:

  • Mandrels
  • Mandrel savers
  • Bushings (#416 for Slimline pens)
  • Pen Vise (metal, with wood shim, for holding blanks to drill)
  • Pen Vise - wooden hand clamp with notches
  • Pen Press for pen assembly (with various plastic and wooden spacers. similar to this
  • Barrel Trimmers. These have interchangeable bits for different diameter barrels.
    • Usually one for the 7mm is loaded.
    • There is a box of barrel bits in the box with the other bits.
    • Use these with a handheld drill. The wonderful new drill press over powers it. Generates too heat and breaks the bonds of the CA and wood, or over-trims.
  • Pen Disassembly Punch Set (this will most likely destroy something.)
  • 7mm bits for Slimline pens
  • Consumables: CA Glue, Sand paper, Micromesh abrasives for acrylic, Shellawax, and hard wax will vary.
