Excellent for my 1st Pen TurningI bought two of these and two of the Chrome kits for my first ever pen turning along with the Evolution Mandrel and relevant bushings. I have to say I was amazed at how well these turn out. So much the wife has now asked me to make a lot more for Christmas presents. So I will be ordering in batches of 10's to make the most and take advantage of the 25% off.

Very nice looking pen kitI am new to pen turning and this is the first pen kit I have turned. I am very pleased with the result. The bushings (which I bought as well) work well, the central band has a floating bushing which shows you the small lip you have to turn on the end section. That was interesting for someone new to pens, but it came out very well. The cap and tip all slot in very tightly and the twist mechanism works well. I did find I had to push it in much further than expected to get the nib to protrude sufficiently. However as the two brass tubes are slightly different lengths, I wonder if the shorter one should be for the body, personally I prefer it the way I have done it. I bought a pack of ten which works out at £1.80 ish per pen kit, they look a lot more expensive than that and I will be buying more, until I run out of people to make pens for!
