I have some of his kits but not all so I could make a few inserts but let us see what we can find out. My only little hicup in this is I maybe heading for another stint in the hospital. I will find out this week. When I get out i will follow up on it. As far as other vendors I do not know of any other or have dealings with others that may have been mentioned. All others that I buy from are listed already.
Thanks JT,

Looking at the Timberbits web site, I see that they have instructions for most of their kits & some appear to be renames of other kits. So, I think the main things that we need from them are:
1. Verification of which kits they have renamed
2. Bushing & tube info on any exclusive Timberbit kits (and instructions, if possible).
3. An alphabetic listing of all their kits with the original manufacturer or suppler being identified (PSI, CSUSA, Dayacom, Berea, etc) would also be helpful. That would save us time when compiling the chart for their kits rather than having to peruse their web site for each individual kit, but it's not absolutely necessary.

In particular, I see that their Blingless Harvest kit is a Timberbits exclusive and has no instructions. Also I can't find any bushing size or tube length info on this kit. Are the bushings & tubes the same as Roman Harvest, or are they different? Can Roman Harvest instructions be used, or is there a difference?

That type of info for any other unique TB kits would also be helpful.

We really appreciate your help with this and we welcome assistance from anyone else who would like to participate in this project.

Edgar

Wow! This is an AMAZING reference tool! I have created a website, penturninghelp.wordpress.com whose purpose is to provide help to pen turners. One of the most common questions I come across is if there is a centralized reference for tubes and bushings, etc. Basically, THIS!! It would be so cool if I could post a link to this on my site. I know it would be a big help to those who follow me. Plus, you'd probably get a few more downloads on the Apple App Store. May I have permission to do this?

The PDF files are not searchable because the charts are in image format. At this time, only the app is searchable.

Edgar, is it worthwhile for me to crunch the PDF through a OCR program (I use omni-page) to extract a text/word file??

The ugly with ocr is the occasional missed translate and finding them.

Default Tiny Giant/Editor Bushing and Tube Measurements

Didn't see this kit in any of the charts, so thought I'd share what I measured:

Editor/Tiny Giant
Upper/Cap Tube
A Drill Dia. = 8mm or 5/16"
B Dia. = 0.305"
C Length = 2.58"
D Dia. = 0.392"
E Dia. = 0.281"
F Dia. = 0.392"

Exotic Blanks carries it, as well as Turners Warehouse and others.
