Could be betterThe basic components are fine, and do the job. Their is no listing of the size of the components, so you cannot evaluate whether they will be suitable for other types of pen. There are a number of bushing sets available, but none that I know of come with dimensions, so just be aware. These kits aren't cheap unless you are turning a lot of pens, whereupon they become better value.
