Item details

Would you like to try your hand at casting your very own pen blanks? This is a great place to start. Through a process called "Tube-in" casting, you can attach small objects or items or materials to the brass tube. Things like snakeskin, decorative papers, decals, stamps, carbon fiber, fiberglass braiding or any other object or material you can think of! You can cast up to 2 double tubed blanks at a time and each mold comes with 8 silicone plugs that are used to plug the tube ends. FOR LESS MONEY, YOU CAN EFFECTIVELY DOUBLE YOUR PRODUCTION when compared to other pen molds on the market!! They are reusable for many castings and provide a great way to seal each end of the tube. The molds are great for using in a pressure vessel and you can do so without worrying about resin leaking into the tubes. The plugs can be used with several different tubes as long as they are close in size.

Each mold is hand crafted and poured using premium silicone rubber. We use a process called "de-gasing" with specialized vacuum equipment to ensure that each mold is air-bubble free and will have a long life. It also ensures that that the blanks you create will not deform like other lesser molds can do. These molds will produce four beautiful crystal clear blanks that are ready for squaring up and turning!

This specific mold is designed to make the blanks for the popular Jr. Gentleman pen kit and will work with another pen kit with similar size tubes. It will even allow a bit longer tubes for both the upper and lower tubes. However, it will not work with the full size Gentleman's style pen kits.

The mold is compatible with Poly Resin, Epoxies, Liquid Diamonds and Alumilite. The more caustic compounds, ie, Liquid Diamonds, Poly Resin and Epoxy will naturally wear down the silicone faster but you will still get many excellent blanks from the mold. We suggest using Alumilite strictly due to the fact that it is superior in every way to the other choices, both for your health and for longevity of your product. This is all predicated, of course, that you actually take care of the mold and clean it each time you use it!


***Your pen kit tube dimensions should not exceed the following***:

Upper tube: Length 2.00" (50.84 mm), Diameter 0.50" (12.71 mm)
Lower tube: Length 2.25" (57.16 mm), Diameter 0.40" (10.19 mm)

**This mold will also cast tubeless, solid blanks simply by removing the eye hook in each silicone plug and inverting them in the mold!**

***Each mold will come with 8 silicone plugs, enough to plug each hole***

***We try to keep this item in stock, but sometimes demand requires a one to two week lead***

If you have questions about specific pen kits or tubes, please feel free to ask through the convo function.


FAQs

Lots of folks want to know if I can do engraving. I'm not set up to do such work, but many of my customers have received their pens and taken them to a local engraver and had the work done there.

I can do most custom requests. However, there are some images that work better than others. If you have a specific image you want me to look at, please make sure that it is a clear and correct reproduction of the original. The techniques I use can wash out some colors. Custom work starts at $24.00 per blank due to re-tooling and image reproduction issues.
