These pencil kits have 7mm tubes, but feature a larger center band, resulting in a finished pencil with a larger girth than our regular slimline pens and pencils. At the writing end is a silicone rubber gripping sleeve that makes using these pencils a pleasure. The clip features a ball end for a classic look and feel. The Pencil is a click type that uses .7mm lead that is less likely to puncture the paper. This kit can be turned without using the rubber grip to create a distinctive look. All exposed metal parts have 24k gold plating and tough epoxy coating on them. The comfort pencils are turned on our Std Pen Mandrel using the bushings for the Comfort Pen/Pencil.
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.
