When we make pens using pen kits, they often require assembly most notably pressing together parts. There are many ways to press the parts together and we look at different tools that you can make to do that here!

By: Jim Duxbury
In this article, Jim shows us how to turn a set of tools which we can use with our lathe to press pen kits together. The turned pieces fit the headstock and tailstock so that we can use the tailstock feed as our pen press mechanism.
This is a very clever technique and one that will work well for most of us!
