I have question on buying bushings.While looking for sites to buy some different pen to try I found a vender selling bushing for under $3.00 for all of the different ones he stocked. Is the a difference in quality and if there is how do you tell. I know this may sound like a stupid question ,but I'm fairly new to turning and seaching for all the info I can fine and this looks like a great place to start. Thanks for any help

I haven't seen any variances in the bushings from all sites that I buy from. I've only seen two types of bushings: bushings that work with a specific pen kit or bushings that are conical in shape and are usually plastic that CA glue can easily be cleaned off.

Was the $3 offer per set or for all the bushings offered at that site?

Thank you. I just signed-up. I would hesitate to try them. I mainly have SS TBC bushings machined for me, but I would try them. They look the same as the ones the PSI, etc sells.

TonyL let me know what you think. Trying to get all the knowledge I can. Would love to do the kind of work you guys do. Have turned enough to get good yet.

Didn't mean to mislead you. I signed-up to learn about sales. I didn't buy anything (yet). I also have most of these in SS TBC style.
