Default Pen Families

Are there families of kits that use the same bushings and/or tubes? Seems like it would be nice to be able to tube and turn blanks then let a potential buyer decide which kit they want. I've tried to look at the Bushings and Tube Reference chart but there is so much there I'm having a hard time making the connections.

That is really the way to do it. Also, if you have an iPhone or iPad you can download the App and when you search for the tube size it will list all those kits.

Unfortunately I have an Android phone. I was hoping there were some common/popular kits that were compatible that someone could point out.

I'm still new to this and am interested too. I'll definitely check out the app.
Currently I know the Baron and Sedona kits use the same tubes and bushings.

Junior series from CSUSA (Jr. Gentleman II, Jr. Statesman II, Junior emperor) all use the same tubes, but the jr emperor has a straight body, while the others are sloped. The Atrax from Berea also has the same tube as these, with the sloped body. The triton CAN use the same body, but the tubes that come with the pen are a little shorter.



The Baron and Sedona are exactly the same.
