With this well-made hardware, you can create an attractive, durable pen. High-quality platings yield a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
The Electra pen is simple to make, since only the barrel is turned. The cap features an elegant woven pattern, with faceted accents on the clip and finial, and a Celtic knotwork design on the end medallion. Gold plated with chrome accents. The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
The pen has an iridium-tipped nib and uses a cartridge (sold separately) or bottled ink (siphon pump included).
Requires a Z* size drill bit. The minimum blank size is 3/4" × 2 7/8". Drill bits, blanks, bushings and mandrels sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we offer brass replacement tubes for each kit.
* Machinists commonly use letter-size bits. "Z" simply refers to the diameter.
