An attractive easy to make pen that should prove very popular at craft fairs or would make a beautiful gift. Available in either gold plated or silver finish the pens feature a four ring central band of larger diameter than the end fittings giving a pleasing shape and feel to the finished pen. 7mm drill required. When using a pen mandrel to make these pens use bushing set 953311.

Cracking pen but is it a slimline?Great little pen that is easy to assemble. I don't think this is a true slimline pen as the middle bush is larger (doesn't mention this in the instructions). I believe this is better know as a streamline pen according to people that know more than me. Overall this kit represents great value for money and I am very happy with them.

Slim line with thicker middleThis kit is for a slim line pen, but not a parallel pen, the middle ring being about 2mm larger diameter than the top and 3mm larger than the bottom. That said if you also get the relevant bushing kit everything is easy as you work to the diameter of the bushes, once you've figured out which bush goes where. As with other Axminster products I've purchased everything is well made, good quality and reasonable value for money (buy 10 for a good discount)
