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.
Patterned after a classic design by Parker, this flat-top pen has distinctive black accents. Its 1/2" diameter barrel is well balanced and easy to grip. A half-twist in either direction exposes the pen tip. Uses a standard Parker-style refill and comes with black ink. The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
Requires an O* drill bit. The minimum blank size is 5/8" × 5". 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. "O" simply refers to the diameter.
We also offer a starter set that consists of two pencil kits in a gold finish, bushings and the required drill bit.
