With this well-made hardware, you can create an attractive, durable pencil. High-quality platings yield a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
Similar to the slim ballpoint pen, this pencil incorporates an Art Deco-inspired pattern center band and tapered ball-tip clips. It uses 0.7mm leads advanced by a non-jamming "click" mechanism. The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
Requires a 7mm drill bit and a minimum blank size of 1/2" × 4 1/2". Drill bits, blanks, bushings and mandrels sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we offer brass replacement tubes.
We also offer a starter set that consists of two pencil kits in a gold finish, bushings and the required drill bit.
