Artist’s Pencil Kit

Woodworker's/Artist's Pencil Kit at Woodcraft.com

 

This unique pencil kit is equally at home in the shop or an artist’s sketch kit. The single tube kit is extremely easy to turn and produces an attractive, different, and very functional pencil. The extra thick (5.66mm, about 7/32″ D x 3-1/8″L) HB round lead resists breaking and is held firmly in place by a four jaw collet at the bottom of the pencil mechanism. Just push on the spring loaded top of the pencil and the collet opens so you can advance or retract the lead to the desired length.

 

  • The top, when unscrewed from the pencil, features an internal sharpener to renew the point.
  • When combined with the 4B soft lead, any artist would love to add this pencil to their sketch kit.
  • Requires a 5/8″ x 5/8″ x 3-1/2″ blank, pen mandrel, 15/32″ bit and artist’s pencil bushings that are listed below and on left under You Might Also Like.
  • Standard gold finish.

Classic American Style Screw Cap Fountain and Rollerball Pens

Classic American Style Screw Cap Fountain and Rollerball Pens at Woodcraft.

At last, classic American style pens with a cap that screws on and off! No more fussing with the delicate adjustments necessary for the perfect fit on “snap” style fountain and rollerball pen kits. These kits use threaded, press fit components, so your cap “screws on” to protect the pen mechanism when not in use. With the exception of the screw cap, these pens are identical to our regular classic American style pens. Now these classically styled pens can be made even more eye-catching with the addition of spider web filigrees.

 

  • Naturally beautiful spider web pattern compliments the lines of the classic American style screw cap pens and makes them even more distinctive
  • Requires a 5/8″ x 5/8″ x 5″ blank, pen mandrel, 3/8″ pen maker’s or brad point bit and American Fountain/Rollerball bushings

Turning pens is growing in popularity because it’s fun, easy and can be done on any size lathe. It’s also a great way to produce handcrafted unique gifts for your friends and family or even for merchandise to sell. Handcrafted pens typically sell for $25.00 and up.

If you’re thinking about turning some pens, you’ll find everything you need to get started right here…

This is an awesome kit to get you started… When Mike and I started turning pens, we had to purchase everything separately and it was a bit of a pain because we had to go to 3 different stores to get everything we needed to start out and it cost us twice as much. I wish we had come across something like this.

If you already have a lathe, make sure and check the Morse Taper on your head stock before purchasing any pen turning kits that include a mandrel. If you’re not sure what the MT is for your lathe, send us a comment, we’ll do our best to help you figure it out.

Excelsior Mini Lathe
With solid cast-iron construction, a robust 1/2 hp motor and a precision- machined live center, this little workhorse rivals features found in much larger lathes. It can turn bowls of almost 10″ in diameter, and spindles up to 17-3/4″ in length, making it perfect for chair legs, small table legs and an endless array of decorative turnings.

Cast-iron body provides mass for minimal vibration, stable turning and maximum durability. To increase your spindle capacity to 38-1/2″, just use the optional Mini Lathe Bed Extension (32307).
