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.
This 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. Refills are standard Parker style (black-ink cartridge 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.
We also offer a starter set that consists of two rollerball pen kits in a gold finish with chrome accents, bushings and the required drill bit.
* Machinists commonly use letter-size bits. "Z" simply refers to the diameter.
