Not Woodcraft Brand
30-Piece Pen Turners Variety Pack
I bought these pens under the assumption that they are Woodcraft brand but they are not! All of the parts are good quality except for the transmissions. They are cheap and are very hard to put together. I made 8 pens and have gone through 6 extra transmissions because they either freeze up or bend when pressed together. The Woodcraft slim lines are better quality.

Plastic pen twist mechanism is POOR
The Social 1
Don't get me wrong this is a great deal that I bought on Black Friday for 1/2 price. The kit made some beautiful pens for Christmas gifts after I replaced pen twist mechanisms. The only bad thing about this kit is that the pen twist mechanism is partly made of plastic which is poorly designed & manufactured. For example, I made 15 pens and had to replace eight of the pen twist mechanisms. They are just very flimsy and collapse during assembly, regardless of how careful you are.
AS a beginner the wood type can be hard to identify, I have 30 blanks and not 100% sure what kind they are in case someone asks me.
A bit disappointed
At first glance, this was "just what the doctor ordered" - a complete package for making a large number of pens at a very reasonable price! Only after I started to assemble some pens did I have a much different opinion. The twist mechanism - a critical element of a twist pen - was not a quality one. Certainly not a professional grade like the ad on the packaging would suggest. Two of the first 5 failed on installation and a third disintegrated when I tried to remove the top of the pen to demonstrate how to replace the cartridge. I will return the remaining components.
