Guideline Generator for Calligraphy http://josselincuette.com/ductus/

 An easy to use guideline generator. Just measure you pen nib in millimeters and the site will generate guidelines for you that have pen angle and whatever x-height you input.

JET PENS  www.jetpens.com

They have the Zig Pens. I like Kuretake Zig Letter Pen CocoIro and use the Kuretake Zig Letter Pen CocoIro Pen Refill - Super Fine - Black: http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-Zig-Letter-Pen-CocoIro-Pen-Refill-Super-Fine-Black/pd/6050. Sadly these pens are not waterproof. Let me know if you find a source for a waterproof version of this pen as the nib is very flexible.

Recommendations from students:

Espresso Coffee Tamper: Suitable to make grinder for pigments (Recommended by Jackie Olson):

"It was a recommendation on the web from someone making their own gesso. At $19, this one costs less than half of the usual muller prices. There were also suggestions to find a glass object that had a perfectly flat bottom, like a glass or other knick-knack, maybe at thrift stores. It needs to be sturdy enough to put pressure on the glass plate."
