    Lurking for several months, but this is my first post. Does anyone know if pencil kits are available with 0.3 mm or 0.5 mm pencil leads? So far, all I have found is 0.7 mm and up.

    Big Ben Pencil ??

    Question about drilling CSUSA Sketch Pencil

    I drilled blanks for my first two CSUSA sketch pencils yesterday. I used the recommended 15/32 bit and because of the size and length of the hole I drilled them both on the lathe - one acrylic and one wood (tulipwood). Anyway, I ended up with really sloppy fits on both of the blanks. I used...
