Ball-point Pens

The Ballpoint pens found on this page are made from KIT PENS. Just as the name susggests, Kit pens are made from pen "Kits" that include all the individual parts to make a complete pen. Using a kit, once you select the style and finish of the pen, you next choose the desired material, then install the internal brass tubes for the CENTERS (the main sections on the pen-- these can have one or two centers depending on the pen style) into the material. Then you mount the material on the lathe and turn the centers to the correct size and shape based on the kit used. Finally, the pen is assembled by pressing the metal parts to the centers. Then Vola! You have a completed pen! Shown below are the parts for a typical kit pen.

The advantage of a kit pen is that you have access to many different styles of pens as well as material that allow you to make a pen that suits your style. Since there are so many pen styles available these days, it's impossible to show a smaple of every one. The pens shown below are some of the more basic, but popular styles requested. If you're interested in ordering a kit pen and want to see the other styles available, send me an email and I'll supply you with a links where you can reveiw all the styles.

Anatomy of a Kit Pen:

  A - Brass Tubes.
