Default Cellulose Acetate blank info

I was viewing The Turners workshop site and they have pre bored cellulose acetate pen blanks with a drilled centre of 9.5 mm. What pen kits would accommodate this diameter or how would you adapt it to other pen kits. Thanks Darrell Eisner

I have purchased quite a bit of the cellulose acetate from them. He also sells on ebay. Rarely is there an exact match between the tubes and the materials hole. I ream them to the size I need. It's a challenge. I start by wrapping them with the self adhering wrap I get from a drug store. Then I progress with a drill index, and hand drill.

Carl...thank you for your informative reply. I would like to try these on a Jr Gents with the larger diameter drill. They are great looking blanks. Darrell

Drill slowly and you'll be fine. It will get hot and melt if the drill speed is too high and or bit gets too hot.

You will be very happy with vintage cellulose acetate. It shines with little effort. It's hard to beat as it is also very opaque.

Plus it is so easy since you don't have to do a ton of drilling or turning!
