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. Tip: when turning light-colored woods, apply a bit of CA glue to the bushings to prevent metal dust from migrating onto the turning blank.


Features:
  • Made of steel—hard enough for excellent durability, yet soft enough to prevent damage to your turning tools

Bolt-Action bushings
These bushings work perfect and have several. Some have worked down in diameter with touching my carbides but after applying CA glue for finishing, come out perfect! I still measure each end making sure it's correct diameter.
Bushings work great!

Bolt Action Necessity
To get that $125.00 look on my bullet related pens it all starts with a new set of bushings. I buy a new set about every 18 months. I definitely recommend you check your old supply and buy some new ones if you have misaligned blanks coming off your mandrels.

LESSON LEARNED
Very nice bushings. Too bad I thought I was buying vertex bushings and now have to try and remove 8 coats of CA from my pen so I can make my pen look right. READ THE LABELS DONT TRUST THE BINS LOL
Bolt-action bushings don't work for vertex pens lol.  I'll read the labels from now  on.

I bought "Bushings for Bolt-Action Pen Kits Item #: 53451" to use with 30 Caliber Bolt-Action Pen Hardware Kit, Gun Metal Item #: 50694. The bushings are too large and do not fit in the brass tube of the pen kit; even though it is listed as the bushings for the kit. I measured the bushings and they are larger than the sizes on the pen kit instructions. What will fit?

BEST ANSWER: I purchased the bushings for this pen and they worked fine. Perhaps Rockler furnished you with the bushings for the Magnum pen kit. I have not turned that kit but suspect the bushings may be larger. Ask Rockler to send you the bushings specified for the kit which you have ordered. They may have made a mistake with your original order
what bushing set is used on bolt action tech pen?
Gary C on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It would be sku 58813, Bolt Action Tec Pen bushing.
