Return Policy

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 from UHMW, the same super-slippery polymer used in our Plastic Jig Stock. They're pre-drilled for a standard mandrel, and have a 60° taper so they'll fit most any size pen bushing. Just swap these for your metal bushings once the pen is turned, and apply your finish. 4-Pack.


Features:
  • 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 plastic bushings 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
