Jim has a point, While Berea and Craft Supplies and others have what is
called a "premium" kit, "premium" usually refers to the plating. In my
experience it is still the same mechanism, the same clips and parts, the
same refills, all one homogeneous bunch of parts with different plating (I
should also say in fairness though that today's parts are better than those
of a few years ago, but still have a way to go).
I too would like to fined a premium kit, more sturdy parts, good plating,
and good cartridges (I throw them out and use "Cross" or "Parker" refills).
Perhaps the Bereas and others could consider premium parts along with

Here is a place I just found about a week ago. The website is weak
and I understand they are working on it.
They carry everything in the PSI catalog and then discount it. Placed
my first order via web on Sunday, package arrived Wednesday via
Priority Mail and everything was in order and wrapped properly. I
believe that they also discount HUT. I will be a return customer.
If you call Woodturnigz.com to place your order, please mention my
name as the referral - John Miriello - and I was told that you would
receive $5 off of your first order of $75+
Apparently, they are happy to have me pass the name along. There is
nothing in this for me but the service was great.
