    Pen Press

    A while ago geordie0926 aka Joesph posted a video about plans for a home made pen press. I would like to say a big thanks to Joesph for the information,the Planís are very good when combined with the video. I really enjoyed making the press. All the wood parts were made from various offcuts I had lying around and I only had to purchase the toggle clamp,a brass rod and a piece of HDPE. That came to a grand total of £12.49. (Plus a few hundred pounds worth of power tools but we wonít count them). First pen pressed with it and it works really well.

    That looks very stylish and robust!
    Measure Twice, cut once, then force it to fit.

    Is that just a standard toggle clamp, Dave?
    I had a couple of attempts of making a press, the toggle clamp let me down both times.
    I did see some on aliexpress that looked good but they are about $30.00.
