    Single-Blank Pen Kit Recommendations?

    So I'm new to turning pens and have some slimline kits which are fine but my question is this: What are some inexpensive pen kits that use a single blank? I'm going to cast some hybrid and resin blanks, use some figured woods, etc., and would like to make larger pens than the Slimlines I...

    Quality pen kit recommendations for a noob?

    Hello, I have turned a few pens and am not happy with the quality of the pen kits I purchased (Spartan and Vertex). There's too much plastic for my liking and the click mechanism has neither a good tactile feel nor a strong click sound. I would appreciate any suggestions as to what specific...

    I've really seen some hit and miss with the quality on the slimline pens. I'm not super-impressed with the kits from Craft Supplies USA, but as far as I can tell, they're the cheapest at less than $2 per kit. I've ordered some from Exotic Blanks that I've liked, and they weren't bad on price...

    Pen Turning Ethics

    I have made sure, to the best of my ability, that the wood I use for my pens is absent from both CITES and the ICUN lists. But I am still at a quandary concerning pen kits themselves. I have been filling orders with USA made kits (Desire or Hancock, Liberty, or Eagle Pen kits) but, from I can...
