This unique woodworkers pencil will quickly become the first “tool” you pick up when you enter the shop. The extra thick (5.66mm, about 7/32″ D x 3-1/8″L) hard round lead resists breaking and is held firmly in place by a four jaw collet at the bottom of the pencil mechanism. Push on the spring loaded top of the pencil and the collet opens so you can advance or retract the lead to the desired length. The top, when unscrewed from the pencil, features internal sharpener to renew point. It comes with HB (hard) lead and additional hard, soft or colored lead can be purchased separately.

Question by Medwardl: classic woodworking how too?
I’d like to get into wood working one day but I’d like to do it old style. I’ll use modern tools for the most part but I’m not sure how you would do it without using fasteners if at all possible and minimal glue. Not sure if it requires drying some of the wood completely before cutting or how to do it to get nice tight joints. Anyone have any resources for that kind of woodworking thanks.
Answer by Diane B.
There are loads of books, magazines, videos, websites, website forums, etc, on doing that kind of woodworking.
As far as I understand, there are several “types” of woodworking using various kinds of joinery and equipment:
…carpentry (larger items, like houses)
…fine woodworking (smaller items like chests of drawers, tables, cabinets–“cabinetry,” etc.)
Either of those could be done in various ways/combinations:
….only with hand tools and traditional joinery (like in the old days, or on the tv show the “Woodright’s Shop” http://www.pbs.org/woodwrightsshop )
…with electric tools to create traditional joints
…with electric tools plus things like screws, etc.
Check out some of these links for various kinds of traditional and non-traditional joinery, etc, for asking questions in woodworking forums (including where you might find more info on the type of woodworking you want to do), and more:
