First try for wooden pen making?

K.S.SONG
>Hi

I would like to buy related parts soon for various style of wooden
pen to Craft Supplies USA, woodturnerscatalog.com as my new
experience.
I have a JET MINI , 2MT.

PANACHE ROLLERBALL , HAVANA BALL POINT PEN , Statesman pen ,
more styles with each accessory kits(drill bits & bushings).

Regarding making tools, I will order following things.
-. NO. 2 MT ADJUSTABLE PEN MANDREL ,
-. 1/2 & 3/4INCH BARREL TRIMMER HEAD ,
-. 5 different sizes of pilot shafts of 'Interchangeable Pilot

Shafts'.

By the way, there are some disagreement between drill bit diameter
of pen kits and pilot shafts diameter.

ex) Drill bit diameter of PANACHE ROLLERBALL kit : 13/32" , 12.5mm.

But, they are not existed on 'Interchangeable Pilot Shafts' item no. 050-1200 ~ 050-1209.

As alternative, is it O.K to choose 15/32" shaft for 13/32"?

How about alternative for 12.5mm drill bit?

Moreover, are there any useful comments besides above point?
Your advice for pen making beginner like me should be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
