WoodRiver Deluxe Pen Press
I was a little hesitant after reading a couple of reviews that stated poor quality handle strength. Decided to go with it anyway. After seeing it in person and using it today, rest assured it is made quite well. Mechanism works fine with no issues. I like the button/gear quick spacer adjustment. This makes resetting very quick. Much better than the flip up spacers found on other units.
I turn some pretty thin antler pieces and have cracked some during assembly using a makeshift setup. This unit works very smooth and effortless. Am looking forward to many years of use. Don't hesitate to buy. Well designed heavy duty piece.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Would be nice if I could just buy another lever.
I was very very surprised when it broke.
I very much like the product
Round Rock, TX
This tool is built very well. I got tired of spending an hour turning and finishing a pen to have it crack using a cheap hand vise to assemble my pens. It is worth the money.
Top dollar; bottom quality
I have broken off two handles with minimum amounts of pressure in pressing pen parts. Seems to work well on very minor pressing needs. No apparent reason to have handle screw into mechanism. A terrific weak spot. Have a solid (permanent) handle and you will have a good product.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I have tried several pen presses. And none compare. The Woodriver is a little pricier than the ones I tried out, but is far more superior. If you make pens, this is for you.
Works as advertised
No swearing required for the last step in pen making. Gives you great control in assembling the pen.
A quality product
Overland Park, KS
This press feels substantial and I really like how the push button works and the how you can turn the knob for small increment presses.
Handle snapped off
The press worked great for about 5 pens. Then as I was pressing a pen, the handle snapped at the pivot joint. I will attempt to exchange for another tomorrow, but others seem to have had this problem.
well built pen press, weak handle
I looked at several pen presses before purchasing this press. I like the way it is built and the quick release screw feature.
The handle is a bar that has been machined down on the end and threaded. It screws into the mechanism. Mine broke where the threads stop at the end of the handle. I drilled the end of the handle and rethreaded with a 1/4" - 20 tap. I also had to drill the mechanism to accept a 1/4" diameter bolt. I installed the bolt, threading it into the handle. Created a much better joint.
Very satisfied with the pen press.
Awesome Pen Press
Great purchase. Fast delivery and excellent quality product.
