More info

These acrylic rods are made by casting thermoset polyester plastic resin in tubes and are good alternatives to the real thing. This durable material is non-toxic and perfect for pen making. Polyester blanks are safe for drilling and turning on a wood lathe provided the tools are sharp.

Turning Polyester can be difficult if you are using it for the first time.

Some notes on turning Polyester:

  • Use very sharp tools and gentle light cuts are needed to keep chipping to a minimum.
  • A negative-rake scraper produces the cleanest chip-free finish followed closely by a skew chisel used as a scraper. A regular scraper has a tendency to create small chips. 
  • It is important to engage the tool on the rest, rub the bevel and slowly lift until cutting starts every time. Acrylics are unforgiving of careless cutting
