These kits are plated with TN (Titanium Nitride) to give an absolutely permanent finish that looks like gold plating. Even with hard use the plating on these pens will not wear off like normal gold plating can. If you are looking for the best quality, these are the kits to use. We offer our most popular kits with TN Plating. All the clips in this series have a distinctive TN on the clip to show their quality. All TN Kits use 7mm Tubes. They are all turned on our standard pen mandrel.
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.
