The Sculptured Letter Opener and Magnifying Glass (sold separately)all have 24 karat plating with a tough epoxy coating. They will get a lot of attention at shows as well. The Magnifier is 2" in diameter and the letter opener has a 4-1/2" blade. Both kits require an 8mm hole to be drilled in the wood blank and are turned on our pen mandrel with the bushing set sold below.
Bushings: Bushings are needed to turn the project on the pen mandrels we offer. The bushings are used to size the outside diameter of the workpiece correctly for the specific project. They are also used to adapt the pen mandrel for project tubes larger than the mandrel shaft. Only one set of bushings are needed for many kits. After the bushings are worn down from sanding they will need replacing.
