Product Description

Plain Pen Drill 3.5mm x 180mm

(drill bit only not finished pen)

This is the drill bit you will need to make plain pens

See Bic Pen refills

Start with a blank that is at least 190
long and 20 x 20mm.
It is best to hold this in a 25mm chuck
with the tail brought up for security. You
can hold it in the centre of a larger
chuck, for this make the blank longer.
Round it off. Wind the speed up as this
wood has a small diameter.
Plain Pens
With the wood round, take the tailstock
away. Use the dent made by the
tailstock to start drilling a 3.5mm hole
130mm into the wood. Do this gently,
withdrawing the drill after each 2 or 3
mm. Then drill a 4mm hole into the first
10mm of the wood. In soft wood the
3.5mm drill may have already made
the start of the hole this large.
Insert the rivet part of a 4mm dia pop
rivet in the drilled hole and bring the tail
up again.
Now shape the pen barrel. Knobs,
beads, coves, burn lines, endless
possibilities. Continue shaping and
sanding until almost ready to part off at
the headstock end. Apply the finish of
your choice.
Part off. Remove but don't lose the pop
rivet.
Finish the parted off area.
Insert a bic refill.
