This pen will be popular with military enthusiasts and outdoorsman. It is made from an authentic 50-caliber once-fired brass cartridge, with a 7mm tube, and a Cross™ style ballpoint mechanism. This project is an easy to make one of a kind project. The length of the turned section can be varied from 1-1/8" to 2" for a custom apperance. This project is turned on our standard pen mandrel with the bushings offered 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.
