Such excellent resources you have created.

For me, as a new turner, crosses between manufacturers bushings and tubes would be invaluable. I have already discovered that I have bushings that are duplicates after turning less than a year.

Personally I would love to see these charts put in something that I could filter by various criteria and sort by other various criteria. Sadly this would involve some front end and back end coding work and very likely never happen.

Ed,

I'm presently working with another member to do just that. We will place all of this information into a database with a front end on this site.

Until we get there, I want to get this information to our members.

Great Idea. Great Minds think alike. Stay tuned...

I did bring this up few years back. Also one of the big problems is finding compliant similar pen kits for tubes and when you make custom blanks it's very brutal with all the pen kit variations.

As far as sort options I would like to see the following sorts:

  • Bushing sizes
  • Drill bit sizes
  • Tube sizes (e.g., 7mm, 3/8", 27/64", 15mm, etc.)
I would also prefer a downloadable Excel version so I can create my own sorts and lists.

Thanks for all your work.

Does anybody buy kits from lee valley ? ;-)
I have not lately, but when I first started turning pens, I got my kits from them. They are not too cheap for pens, but neither is Woodcraft. I like to deal with Lee Valley, and in fact, on the Black Friday / Cyber Monday event, I bought a $500 gift card for ~ $430, as I recall. It was almost 15% off. Plus they run several free shipping events every year.

I suspect our friends north of the border use them like we use Rockler and Woodcraft in the USA. In fact, I wish Lee Valley would open up some stores here.

Wayne, I like the updated formats. And having a cross reference by manufacturer would be excellent. Thanks for all your effort.
