These top shelf pen and pencil kits are plated with rhodium, an exquisite, valuable, and extremely durable precious metal. Pens produced with rhodium plating will not tarnish and are very resistant to scratching and acids. Each Platinum Group Kit includes an attractive Identification Card that explains the Rhodium plating and provides a space for artist's signature and other information. These pen and pencil kits feature a ball end clip and bead shape center band. Using a pen mandrel, 5/8" sq. wood blank and a 7mm drill bit, you can turn a finished pen or pencil in a matter of minutes. The ball point of the pen extends and retracts by twisting the top of the pen 3/4 turn and locks in the open position.
The Slimline Pencil Kit uses a new trouble free cartridge click type mechanism to advance the lead. The pencil uses 0.5 HB type lead refills. Both the Pen and Pencil Kits can be turned on our Standard Mandrel with the bushings included with the mandrel.
Bushings: This project is turned with the bushings that are included with the pen mandrels we offer. No additional bushings are required. We offer replacement bushings to use if your mandrel's bushings are lost or worn down. Only one set of bushings are needed for many kits.
