The Axminster Deluxe Pen Assembly Press makes the assembly of your pens and project kits fast and simple. A nylon pad, adjustable for position, protects any plated parts of the pen body whilst the toggle clamp applies an even pressure to press the other end of the pen into position.The fast action thread adjustment allows you to quickly adjust the capacity to accommodate different sizes of pen kit. The unit can be bench or wall mounted and the robust metal construction should give years of trouble free service. An excellent investment for the keen penmaker. Base 370mm x 110mm, capacity 0 - 142mm, piston travel 32mm.

Elegant!Is this device necessary? Absolutely not. Is it good at what it does? Absolutely yes! So far, I've used my bench vice to press pen kit parts into the tubes, with all the fear and trepidation that the force of a badly judged turn too far could wreck an expensive and well loved project. This press is beautifully made and the convenience and simplicity of operation makes it easily worth the somewhat eye-watering price-tag.
