Mechanical Pencil Body – a small turning project.

IMG_20180105_140706_777I like Pentel mechanical pencils, and have been using them for years. 0.9mm is my go to lead thickness because I’m a little hamfisted and tend to snap the thinner ones.

These metal housings are pretty easy to turn, and they make a nice weighty pencil.  They also make nice gifts.  I’ve posted the model and drawings on Onshape.
