    Comments about Milescraft TurnersPress :

    We have a business making and selling pens. We had the old style press that relied on a screw for the right pressure. This tools is 10 times better. No slippage. Highly recommended.

    Comments about Milescraft TurnersPress :

    I have yet to find a pen that this press will not work with, and I have used 10 different models on it. Being able to make the micro adjustments gives me better confidence in working with fun line products. No garage/shop should be without this tool.

    Comments about Milescraft TurnersPress :

    Although fairly straightforward and well constructed, this press would definately benefit from some additional instructions. It came with a single page that mostly covered the initial setup and a description of the features, but lacked any information/advice on how to use the tool properly. Other than that, this tool made quick work of my first 3 pen projects.

    Handle position important for this tool

    Comments about Milescraft TurnersPress :

    I have assembled over 700 pen kits with this product. Initially I had problem with alignment bushing loosening, however, I contacted manufacturer who recommended handle position change. This change provided greater leverage and the alignment bushing stays in it's position with this setup. The design of this press allows great quick assembly of pen kits. I would highly recommend this pen press.

    Since the change in handle operation and mounting position I have had nothing but good results from this press. The updated model now available is a night and day improvement over the last model.

    Comments about Milescraft TurnersPress :

    Bought this on a recent USA trip. I like the flip up spacers. I had read earlier reviews so I looked it over carefully. There was a sheet in the box showing how to change the handle position and that made sense to me so I took a chance on it and it works great. It assembles pens without any trouble BUT keep the glue out of the tubes! One pen pushed hard because glue got into the tube. I'm very happy with the press.
