    Instead of the normal bushes hat have a step one for going into the tube and the second diameter for the pen size they have a taper which means that you need to measure the pen fitting and turn the blank down to that size. There is a warning when turning pens blanks using the tapered bushes and that is never over tighten the blank in place otherwise you can splay the end of the tube out as well as possibly split the blank

    Hi James

    This kit and bushes are available but just seemingly not in the UK.
    I can get them in for you if you would like but will take a week or two.

    If this is of any help to you just give me call - 07718 747700

    Look forward to speaking to you.

    Dave
