Actually the Woodchuck Pen Pro uses 2 inserts.
A 15mm by 100 mm =4 inch radius, and a 15mm by 50 mm =2 inch radius. And although it is not included with or recommended for it, the tool it will accept a 15mm square insert.

We made a bunch about 6 months ago, but due to a promise I made to the supplier of the 18mm round inserts, we have been obligated not to make a 4 inch version, I think there are about 20 of them in the scrap bin, my son in law made them while I was out of the shop for several weeks. I've tried the round insert on pens and spindle work, but I just can't hold a smooth line, I get a bunch of waves, I know several folks that have Peters Rotundo and really like it, but I just have better luck using the round inserts on inside bowl work, they are amazing for that.

I agree the round insert leaves too many waves but I finish up with the square insert to final dimensions.

Hi Brian,

No, I have "plenty". Just curious as to how the 18mm came to be since I picked that size and without a doubt was the first to offer.

I really like your tools. I saw a couple other tools with that size and wanted to make it a universal. But as I found out there are no universal size inserts like those. So I just stuck with the 18 millimeter inserts.

Thank you for your response. The 18mm is just "right" for pens. Keep up the good work.
