Overview

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.

I have experienced the sticking of...

Lundeen D from Brooklyn Park, MN Posted June 2, 2013
I have experienced the sticking of pen bushings to the blanks after applying a CA finish so I was excited to try these non-stick bushings. The bushings did come off easier but definitely not "non-stick". When I did get the bushings separated they did separate at the bushing/finish line without the finish breaking off over the blank which has happened with the metal bushinggs in place. Care in removing the excess finish from the pen blank ends is necessary to prevent chipping of the finish or the blank from the tube. A benefit is that the pen bushings don't get a CA buildup on them.
