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.
Inspired by classic Parker-style pens of the 1920s, this pen has a quick-acting threaded cap that seals tightly to keep ink fresh. The rollerball includes a long-lasting ceramic-tipped black ink cartridge. The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
Required drill bit size is V*. Use a minimum blank size of 3/4" × 4". Drill bits, blanks, bushings and mandrels sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we offer brass replacement tubes.
* Machinists commonly use letter-size bits. "V" simply refers to the diameter.
We also offer a starter set that consists of two pen kits in a gold finish, bushings and the required drill bit(s).
