Drill and assemble your pens perfectly with flush fittings and a smoothly-operating mechanism! This dual-purpose jig takes care of both prep work and assembly. It holds your blank firmly in position for drilling, creating a precise, perfectly centered hole the entire length of the pen. Later, it smoothly presses your parts together without any bowing or misalignment. Notched jaws automatically center the blank for drilling, while two countersunk holes center the parts during assembly. Large clamping wheel provides slow, controlled pressure so you'll never crack a casing again.After all the careful work of turning, the worst possible thing is to have something go wrong during assembly. The Pen Press/Drilling Jig prevents this from happening in two ways. It ensures a straight hole to accept your mechanism without binding, and it pushes everything together with steady, parallel clamping action. The result is a smooth operating pen, every time.Includes 3 replaceable sacrificial wood blanks for the exit hole in drilling operations.Extruded aluminum base provides space for a shop made drawer.Feet are pre-drilled for mounting to an auxiliary base.Cast aluminum jaws are notched for vertical drilling and countersunk for horizontal pen pressing.Self-centering jaws allow for repeatable drilling of various pen blank sizes.Centered countersink in the jaws allows precise pen pressing without bowing and misalignment.Clamping wheel provides slow, controlled pressure when pressing your pen or clamping your pen blank.
