Topic tags/keywords: question lathe turning burl pen

Can anyone recommend a method to keep the bushings from sticking to the blanks when turning pens, especially burls that are fragile and break when seperated, I use a CA finish and “break it loose” after each coat, Is there anything else I can do. Thanks for your help

Putting a little paste wax on the bushing works for me.
