Manhattan Ballpoint Pen Hardware Kit - Chrome

Item #
47863
Rating:
96% of 100

With its elegant profile, superb balance, and smooth action, the Manhattan Pen has earned its place as a favorite among pen turners. It's a single twist pen - one turn of the barrel exposes the ballpoint tip. The Manhattan Ballpoint Pen takes standard Parker ballpoint pen refills. Choose from hundreds of eye-catching materials for the barrel. In hardly any time at all, you'll have a twist pen that will truly be turning heads.


Turning Accessories Needed:
  • Turning Blank (sold separately)
  • Pen Turning Mandrel (sold separately)
  • Manhattan Bushing Set (#43428, sold separately)
  • 27/64" Drill Bit (#32111, sold separately)

Very Good Pen Kit
The pen assembled easily. The black and chrome areas did not show fingermarks, so the finished product is very good. You can turn the wood to be parallel to the bushings, or you can leave a curve on the wood, which gives the pen more heft, which some folks might like. I would recommend the purchase of this kit.

Perfect kit for a quick pen
This kit is always like by recipients, and is reasonably priced. I made my latest in a homemade polyresin blank.

Great pen, great kits, makes wonderful gifts.
I like making Manhattan pens because there is only one tube to turn and it makes a pen that is a good size for a person with a larger hand. I also love the variety of finishes available in the kits.

What size pen blank does this require?
John D on Apr 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Manhattan Pen is a relatively small in diameter pen so a 3/4 x 3/4 by 5" pen blank is sufficient. You will turn away a bit of material but this common blank will be sufficient.
