Most tube-in series are universal in nature, if the tube length is close and bushings are the same size or smaller, then the tube-in blank should cast properly. If you are looking to save money, the common molds such as sierra, junior or patriot can cast smaller tubes with the aid of adjustable spacers you can make for a few extra dollars with our replacement stoppers. Please visit IAP Kit Bushing and Tube Reference for various pen kit dimensions.
Our preferred types of labels for clear cast pen blanks can be purchased at OnlineLabels.com. We recommend Alumilite Clear or Clear Slow (urethane resin) for casting labels, which we now have available in 2#, 8#, and 16# sizes.
