    Help Please.

    I have a TM Ares kit that I have been told to make into a birthday pen due to lock down,

    Can anyone tell me what size the bushings are? they say Sierra but only have TM bushings, and it's all been in storage for a year !!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Yup have to agree with Peter.....I use anything that fits the tube and a pair of calipers if I am not sure
    There is a chart on the IAP website that gives all the dimensions on of bushes, but again you'll need calipers to check what you have!
    I only open my mouth...to change feet...

    thanks for the replies, I figured Ally found the bushings had left my Sirocco bushings in with the kits but had moved all but these into a box!!!
    Pen turned and extra brownie points as it was a birthday gift.
    Also really glad to be back to turning pens, haveloadsof mystery gift pens together through now.
