This barrel trimmer shaft fits Beaufort Sirocco and Zephyr pen kits. It can also be used for Sierra pen kits and all Sierra variants using a 27/64 tube.
Precision made in the UK from EN8M hardened steel, this barrel trimmer shaft fits into our barrel trimmer head and locks in place by means of the hex grub screw in the side of the head. The whole assembly is then held in a drill chuck, either on the lathe or in a drill.
Insert the rotating shaft into the pen kit tube to clear any stray glue that might be in there, and to guide the trimmer head so that the end of the blank is trimmed perfectly flush and perpendicular to the tube.
Be careful not to over-trim. Check your progress frequently, and trim just enough to brighten the end of the tube, not to shorten it.
