Product Information:

This new pen is a perfect "in between" size. Smaller than the classic American-style pens, but larger and easier to grip than the slim-style pens. This easy-to-turn kit does not require any parting or tenons for the center ring. Double twist mechanism turns left or right to extend the ball point, turn to center to retract. To complete a pen, you will also need a 3/4" x 3/4" x 5" blank, letter "O" bit, bushings and mandrel, sold separately. Gold finish.

  • Durable plated finish
  • Middle-sized design
  • Easy assembly including clip and cap
  • Double-twist mechanism
  • Requires a blank of wood or man-made material, bit, mandrel and bushing, sold separately

    Comments about Hart Double Twist Ballpoint Pen Kit - Gold :

    Getting the top portion of the pen (short) length is critical. Don't sand or do any cutting of short brass tube and blank. At final assembly don't worry if Twist Mechanism (D) protrubes ever so lightly. Excessive pressure pressing (D) into upper barrel will damage delicate inside threads rendering the kit trash.

    Comments about Hart Double Twist Ballpoint Pen Kit - Gold :

    I build the pens to sell and like them for my own use also. The last Hart pen that I recieved had a bad twist mechanism and I did not try it before insertion. I now have a wonderful looking pen that you cannot turn. Hope to be able to get it out somehow. The pens are not to large to appeal to women and look really good in acrylics.

    Comments about Hart Double Twist Ballpoint Pen Kit - Gold :

    Wow, I made one in Gold, dressed in Black Walnut. I think it came out great. I'm still working on my finishing technique, so I have a few issues. Apparently 14 people at work liked it too. They each wanted one. The only issue I have with the pen is the transmission. It has it's moments were it doesn't want to work. Then I pick it up later to work on it and it operates as it should. I'm not sure if it is binding like was mentioned before, or if there is another underlying problem. Anyway, the pen style is popular, so I'll work through it. I just keep replacing the trans that cause me issues and move on. Overall, the style is awesome. I Love the Double Twist.

    Comments about Hart Double Twist Ballpoint Pen Kit - Gold :

    I have done about a dozen of these pens. They are nicely balance and work smoothly once the secrets are learned. The elevator must protrude very slightly beyond the end of the cap otherwise the end cap will bind on the center ring. Do not wipe the grease off the elevator or it will cause binding. I have had 2 bad elevators to date that keep rotating without doing anything. Spend the extra money and buy a Parker refill - You'll be glad you did.
