Thank you very much for your help gentlemen.

Grant – got the drill bit – I’m looking for the mill which squares the top of the blank to the tube. Lee Valley still has them listed on their website here but they are discontinued. Woodcraft might send me one from the US but I’m still waiting to see what shipping charges will be. It looked like Fedex was going to be $28 which is too much so they are looking into USPS for me.

Bill – I know the penblanks.ca site well and have ordered them from a few times. I’ve never actually used a mill before so I’m not certain how important that .020 is. I currently use a lathe mounted disc sander to level them off. I can get them square but it is time consuming and I’m looking for a way to speed things up.
