Versatile pen kits!
Some people don't care for Slimlines but I love them for the versatility. I make them with fun shapes and different colors on each piece. You're only limited by your imagination.

BEST ANSWER: The Pen Kit takes a Cross type refill, available at any office supply store.
What exact parts do I need to start turning slimline pens?
Joseph M on Apr 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: OK, I'll start with the obvious: A Lathe, A mandrel, Proper sized bushings, The pen kit, The blank you plan to use, A barrel trimmer, CA glue (for gluing in the sleeves and finishing), Sandpaper and paper towels. I may have forgotten something. However the best way to start is getting one of Rockler's Starter Pen Turning Kit. It has everything you need to make 3 slimline pens except the sandpaper and paper towels. And the mandrel, barrel trimmer, bushings, etc. can be used over and over again with new pen kits.
