These elegant moldings will add a look of distinction to any project, adding ornamentation to the strong foundation you have built. Each piece is precisely shaped, sanded and ready for finishing.
Using CA glue to finish your pen turnings results in a lustrous, glossy polish,but it can also fuse your pen blank to the bushings. Not so with these non-stick polyethylene bushings in place, however. These bushings are made fromUHMW, the same super-slippery polymer used in our Plastic Jig Stock. They'repre-drilled for a standard mandrel, and have a 60° taper so they'll fit most anysize pen bushing. Just swap these for your metal bushings once the pen isturned, and apply your finish. 4-Pack.Technical Details:Non-Stick Pen Bushings are made of UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight)polyethylene.Pre-drilled for a standard 7mm mandrel (e.g. 43537, sold separately).60° cone-shaped taper fits any size pen bushing.After shaping the pen blank, replace the metal bushings with non-stick plasticbushings and apply your CA finish.Self-lubricating UHMW has a low coefficient of friction, so it sheds glue easily.Very stable - 10x heavier than regular high-density polyethylene.High abrasion resistance and high impact strength even at low temperatures.Resistant to chemicals.
This fast-drying solvent can be used instead of paint thinner to accelerate drying time of oil-based paints, enamel and varnish. It also is excellent as a thinner for rubber cement, adhesives and oil-based coatings and works well for cleaning brushes and spray equipment. Often used as a lubricant for rubbing out hardened shellac finishes, and will improve an older shellac coating with a simple rub-down. Do not use to thin lacquers, shellac or latex paints. Flammable. Quart.Please note that this item can be shipped only by UPS Ground to addresses within the continental United States.
