Pen Bushings question?

Penn State sells all types of different pens in the 7mm type. Examples are the SLimline, Trimline, Slimline pro, longwood, etc. These all have different bushing sets. I know the internal diameters are all 7mm, but are all the outer diameters different? Do I have to buy bushings sets for all the 7mm pen types? I'd like to do some Longwoods and just curious if I need to order Longwood bushings too. Thanks!

I like the article/info that Gary posted. As far as PSI goes, you will need the bushings for each kit (or someone elses that match the diameters).

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

For the most part the tip bushing is the same on all the center changes Trimline and comfort pens are the same center but wider then slimline.

Designer needs it's own bushings and so does longwood.
