With this well-made hardware, you can create attractive, durable pens. High-quality platings yield a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
A simple but versatile design, the easy-to-make slim ballpoint pen is readily customized with finger grips and contrasting center bands. The pen operates with a 1/2-twist, comes with black ink and requires a Cross-style refill. The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
Requires a 7mm drill bit. The minimum blank size is 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 pen kits in a gold finish, bushings and the required drill bit.
