This is the pen press I made. The toggle press was the only thing I had to purchase it was $15 on amazon. I used part of the plan from a you tube vid made by Laney Shaughnessy. He made the lever but I didn’t want to so I bought the toggle. I turned a piece of P.H. I had a screw with wood threads on one end and machine threads on the other. I was lucky it was the right threads to fit in the toggle press. After turning the P.H. I put some leather I had laying around on both surfaces that the pen parts would come in contact with. I plan on removing plastic on lever and making it longer.

Nice! I’ve just been using a pipe clamp. I think I’ll look up that video and make one of these myself!
