2011 marked the 150th anniversary of the Civil War making this a perfect time to turn a Civil War Pen. The top is of each pen is sized to match a Minie Ball Bullet. The clip is a replica of a Springfield Musket and the tip is a replica of an 1860 Colt Army Officer Revolver Bullet. These projects use a 3/8" tube and 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.
