    blank length

    I am assembling some Artisan clicker pen kits and I can't find the length to trim them. I got them from Craft supplies and the part # for the brass tubes is 1011700002. Is it 4.125? Preston

    Bushing cross reference?

    I have the app and lists but I am wondering if there is a published cross-reference of which kits use the same bushings (if that makes sense). In other words, now that I have amassed over 20 bushing sets I am wondering if there is a list of pen kits that all take the same size bushing. If I...

    Labels & Decals Wrapping Pen Tubes

    Hey guys! I've been a member here for a while but I rarely post. I was wondering what method you all use to wrap items around the pen tube.

    El Grande questions?

    I just picked up a few of the Berea El Grande kits and find the instructions and methods used much different from any other pen I have done to date. The cap end has two tubes a smaller one that fits in the 11mm hole and a large (short) one that fits in the top end. On the upper cap blank...

    Painting tubes before PR casting?

    OK, I had a big problem with my first batch of PR blanks that I tried. Here is what happened. I prepped the tubes but scratching them up and then proceeded to use Testor's all purpose model enamel paint on the tubes. I used various colors and then coated all of them with Testor's one coat...
