Excellent for my 1st Pen Turning

I bought two of these and two of the Gold 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.

I did mess my first one up all because I didn't read the instructions properly and inserted the twist mechanism too far. Download the instructions and read them carefully.

The only glue I used was CA on the barrels and the band, so perhaps CB had an off batch of pens ans the fittings all push in very well.

Excellent service as we have all come to expect from Axminster. Now to order some more and try another kit too!

Cheap and Cheerful

These kits look nice when they are finished and they are cheap as chips. They are not difficult to make. The coned metal part which the ink nib appears through on the end of the pen had to be glued each time because it was a very loose fit. I removed any glue that leaked out off the join between the barrel and cone with very very fine wire wool (as many 000000's as you can get) when the glue was still wet. I used the same technique when applying the hoop. Zap attack gap filling glue is good for the hoop.

Very Nice

I'm in the same boat as H.B having only been turning pens for a couple of months, and also have to agree with the comment that this is a great kit at a decent price. I've also used them with acrylics and it makes for quite an expensive looking pen.

Excellent kit

A well manufactured kit, that looks great when used with acrylic blanks. Only been turning pens for a few months and these were easy to use.
