3 Car Air Freshener Vent Clip Starter Set

Added August 14, 2019 by April Phister

Love the air freshener but the spade bit was bent

"Turned all 3 air fresheners in one morning. They look great. The spade bit that came with the starter kits was bent. I found a set of forstner bits at home depot with a 1-1/8" bit so I used that for all but the first. I also didn't use the jam chuck. Instead I used a set of pin jaws that I have that fit perfectly inside the hole. My husband and I are each keeping one for our cars and I sold the 3rd to a co-worker. Having asthma, most car air fresheners are way too strong for me. So, I hesitated to use the enclosed air freshener but I did and I found it is perfect. You can smell it but it doesn't overwhelm your senses as soon as you get in the car (even closed up in 100+ F temperatures). I definitely plan to make more of these!"

Olympian Elite2 Rhodium Fountain Pen Kit

Olympian Elite2 Fountain Pen

"This was my first kit pen. I chose it for its aesthetic qualities and relatively short grip section. Very straightforward to turn and assemble. Good choice for a beginner. Pen writes well and nib is very smooth."

PenPal Pen Making Lathe Starter Set

Added August 11, 2019 by Bryan

Exceptional Starter Kit

"I made 5 pens in 6.5 hours and have never user a wood lathe. By the last pen I had it down to a little over hour. This is a really good product. I purchased a skew chisel and a the contrasting pen blanks in the photo. Note: The 7mm bushings for the slimline pens are packed with the lathe, not the accessories. My only advice is buy more supplies while ordering, this stuff is quickly addictive. It is probably best purchase a larger lathe with more horsepower, but this is perfect for pens."

Antique Style Copper Finish Peppermill Mechanism

"One of my top sellers at craft shows. Easy to make cause all you have to do is screw it on top of your wooden mill, instead of installing it inside. One warning, be sure to tell people they are not good for salt. Salt corrodes the works."

Added August 10, 2019 by Malcolm

Great Kit!

"Bought the 'starter' kit (Item #: PKBPNKCSS) and it was everything I needed to turn these puppies into salable items at the counter of the local CO-OP. Actually dug INTO my 'burn' box and found perfect pieces to use for the shafts!!! Now, I don't throw anything away. Will make a slew more, I think!"

Great way to use up your scrap wood!

"Quick, easy project that uses up your scrap cut-offs. Easy to make and people love them. You'll need to make a piece to press the parts together due to the angled ends but there are dimensions included in the instructions and you can use any chunk of lumber you have laying about."

5 DuraClick EDC Pen Kit Starter Set

Added August 10, 2019 by Kenny

One of my new favorites!

"Been trying to find an everyday carry pen. I've been turning lots of different kits trying to find something that was more practical. I like the Big Ben pens but they're too big to carry in a pocket and I needed a click pen anyway because sometimes, when I'm working, I don't have both hands free. These DuraClicks fit the bill as a light, one handed click pen. They have a nice "Click" click mechanism unlike many of the other click pens. Most of the other click pens that I've tried just don't have that satisfying, tactile, CLICK! Those silent types must be what they're going for, design-wise but I don't like them."

Measuring Cup Kit - Set of 4

Added August 8, 2019 by Malcolm R

Awesome Kit...

"My first "tube" turning kit was the measuring spoons (Item #: PKMSPN) and I was hooked! I decided that doing the measuring cups was a great addition to my line and ordered the kit along with the bushings (Ityem #: PKABBU). I already had the 7mm drill bit (Item #: PK-7MM) and the 7mm barrel trimmer (Item #: PKTRIM7) so all I needed was the kit itself. The bit, bushings and trimmer are all a real time saver and add to the ease and design of the project. Awesome kit, easy to follow instructions, and a GREAT accessory to the measuring spoons. I plan on making a bunch of both! Customers LOVE them!"

Wonderfult kit

"I had a piece of wood that was just a little short for the other peppermill kits, then I found this one. Turns out it is a really good one. My sister prefers it as it is easy for her to use. I will be buying more, I suggest that you try one. As Mr. Higgins photo shows you can use a variety of forms."

Antique Style Brass Finish Peppermill Mechanism

Excellent

"As often happens to me I had a great piece of wood (manzanita burl), except for the size. But this one would fit, barely. It is easy to make and my daughter loves it. She has said "not needed" to some of my more elaborate peppermills, but this one she is putting on display on her table. That's the best recommendation I can get."

Gatsby Rollerball 24kt Gold Pen Kit

Added August 6, 2019 by Robert R

Makes oustanding impression; easy to make

"This is a two barrel pen, so you will want to use a traditional mandrel. There is no click mechanism so this is easy to put together. It you try to match grain on the two barrels be aware that the screw threads work on either of two thread runs. This means that sometimes the grain will match, sometimes not. If you post the top barrel to write (like a fountain pen) you may find the pen a bit top heavy. Or not. I put some burn rings on the wood to jazz it up. Buyers love this detail, but beware that the barrel is thin and too aggressive on the burn will cut right to the brass tube. Buyers like a rollerball over a fountain pen, now that carbon paper is out of style. Overall this is a winner."
