Product Information:

The unique design of this press allows for quick, easy adjustments at the press of a button. Simply press the release button to move the threaded rod to the desired position, adjust to the final position by rotating the adjustment knob, and press parts into place. Unlike conventional presses, the WoodRiver® Deluxe Pen Press allows two ways to press the parts together: by using the lever arm to press the parts into place or by leaving the lever arm in the closed position and using the screw arm for pressing of parts. The steel base provides a solid stable platform from which to work.


  • Quick and easy adjustments

  • Ability to press parts two ways

  • Convenience of micro adjustments from the threaded rod

  • Solid steel construction

    Comments about WoodRiver Deluxe Pen Press :

    This pen press works good until the handle breaks where it screws into the pressing mechanism. For the price, you should not have to fix things before you start using it. It worked for about a week before the handle broke. Maybe the manufacturer will actually read the reviews ( most mention the faulty handle) and fix the issue. This press is pretty well built other that the handle design.

    Comments about 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.

    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

    Comments about WoodRiver Deluxe Pen Press :

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Comments about WoodRiver Deluxe Pen Press :

    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.
