    Pen mandrel for closed end.

    Hi All,

    I came across a great article by Mickr on the IAP forum on how to make a closed end pen using a standard pen mandrel.
    So I decided to give it a try.

    I loved the process and my favourite part is the making and installing of the plug. I am glad I used a small piece of 7mm pen tube as that gives a nice brass ring finish.

    Here is the article that I found very useful.

    Sorry about the colours used.:-))

    To me that is open ended turning or a normalish pen,no challenges there. You can make using a hardwood mandrel face a flat on one side,add a pin made from welding rod etc etc. A closed end is impressive too.

    WOW Peter. What has pen of the week done to you?

    You are correct. My description should of read.

    It starts off with open end turning and then you just plug one end and you have a closed end.
