Product Information:

One of the most critical steps in turning top quality pens is squaring the ends of your pen blanks to provide a perfect, gap free mating surface for the pen kit parts. With the Whiteside Pen Mills, this step quick and easy. Proudly made in the USA, the Whiteside Pen Mill features a sharp, 3/4"-diameter carbon steel trimmer head for squaring blanks and pilot shafts that clean excess glue from inside the brass tubes

Comments about 3/4" Diameter Carbide Barrel Trimmer Head :

I thought that having carbide tips would be great as it would not have to be sharpened as often. But only having two teeth it tends to grab and break the blanks. I think that I've destroyed as many blanks as I've successfully milled. I'd consider purchasing one with four teeth but would not buy another one of these.

Comments about 3/4" Diameter Carbide Barrel Trimmer Head :

This is very strong and very impressive/aggressive. My problem is that it will catch on the end and tear out a bit of the work piece. If there were 3 or 4 teeth instead of just 2 it would last and be a fantastic product without so much damage.

Comments about 3/4" Diameter Carbide Barrel Trimmer Head :

I wanted a trimmer that would stay sharp longer than the carbon steel ones. I was a little skeptical about only two wings for cutting. I have used this on over 200 acrylic and wood pens so far and this is still cutting like new. It does make a slight scallop if I push too hard when trimming the end of the blank but I sand flush after turning. I would like it better if it had 4 cutters even thought it would be more expensive. With 4 cutters it should be a top quality item.
