This is a complete set of bushings precisely machined to match the diameters of your pen hardware kit. The bushings let you easily gauge the progress of your turning, allowing you to achieve the smooth, perfectly flush seams so valued in a top-quality hand-turned writing instrument. Just turn the blank until the ends are almost flush with the bushings, then sand to final dimension. Made of steel-hard enough for excellent durability, yet soft enough to prevent damage to your turning toolsTip: when turning light-colored woods, apply a bit of CA glue to the bushings to prevent metal dust from migrating onto the turning blank
Micro-Mesh is used to polish surfaces back to clarity or a high gloss. Available in grades 1500-12,000.Micro-Mesh (Grades 1500 through 12000) was originally designed to polish most hard plastics, fiberglass, epoxy, gel-coat, raw and finished wood, cultured marble, sold surface, painted surfaces, gold, silver, etc. Micro-Mesh is not an aggressive stock remover. Common sandpaper products are required for the removal of deep scratches prior to using Micro-Mesh to polish the surface back to clarity or a high gloss. Use wet or dry with either water or water/detergent as a lubricant. You may also use mineral oil, vegetable oil, lemon oil, etc but DO NOT use anything containing solvent as this will delaminate the MICRO-MESH. Sheets are offered in the following Micro-Mesh grades: 1500, 1800, 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000, 12000
