    Comments about Retro Ballpoint Pen Kit - Chrome :

    I have arthritis, and I have problems holding the small parts, but there is nothing wrong with the pen. I have purchased and made several of these pen,s with no problems. Purchased two more today.I have sold some and gave some as gifts. No one has complained in the past two years, so that is the main thing. I will continue to purchase till they quit selling them.

    Comments about Retro Ballpoint Pen Kit - Chrome :

    The parts did not hold in the tube. I did not have to trim or file so that was not the problem. I was able to put the pen together without a press.

    A decent pen kit for the money

    By  Quillsmith

    from Yulee, FL

    About Me Quality Oriented

    Pros

    • Nice size for purse or po

    Cons

    • Tip distorts when pressed

    Best Uses

    • Custom made for resale
    • Everyday Use

    Comments about Retro Ballpoint Pen Kit - Chrome :

    You will need to file down the tip coupler slightly- the clearance is too tight, resulting in the black tip distorting while pressing into place. Otherwise, not a bad kit for the money- fairly smooth twist mechanism- better than most in this price range. Nice size for pocket or purse, although You can make the lower tube a bit longer if desired, for a different look, and still have adequate allowance for the twist mechanism.
