Non-Stick Pen Bushings for CA Finish 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 fromUHMW, the same super-slippery polymer used in our Plastic Jig Stock. They´repre-drilled for a standard mandrel, and have a 60° taper so they´ll fit most anysize pen bushing. Just swap these for your metal bushings once the pen isturned, and apply your finish. 4-Pack.Technical Details: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 plasticbushings 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.
