Product Information:

Overcome the difficulties of making a traditional European-style pen by using the same single-twist mechanism and 7mm boring process as our regular pen kits. Durable plated finish. Each finish has a matching/contrasting cap that eliminates the difficulties involved in turning a wooden "button" cap. To complete a pen, you will also need a 3/4" x 3/4" x 5" blank, 7mm brad point drill bit, mandrel and European-style pen bushing, all sold separately.

  • Durable plated finish
  • European design
  • Provided cap eliminates difficult turning step
  • Single-twist mechanism
  • Requires a blank of wood or man-made material, bit, mandrel and bushing, sold separately

    Comments about European Style Ballpoint Pen Kit - Platinum :

    Bought several of these. I didn't measure the tubes before using and ended up with a pen with 2 short tubes. Woodcraft Tech Support replaced the kit, but the blank and my labor was lost. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I'VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH MIXED PARTS IN WOODCRAFT KITS.
