Pen Inlay Kit - Red Rose - for Wall Street II and III
This was my 4th inlay pen. You do need to follow the directions. You do need to break the stem to get it to fit and start the rose at the bottom. This kit, once I read the instructions, went together perfectly. I only sanded, after coating in CA glue, and did not use any tools. I put a nice finish on it and gave it to my wife. She loved it and now there are many gealous coworkers. If it does not fit at first, lightly trim the parts, but mine was great. The 'wow' factor makes the effort well worth it.

Need a lite touch and lot of patience
This was my first shot at an inlay kit. It was challenging but rewarding when finished.
As another reviewer stated: the stem was twisted (probably from sitting in my shop for 1+years) and broke during installation. No big deal, found the piece and it went back in fine. The leaf stems will protrude into the long 'branch' section and make it extremely difficult to install. I folded over some 600 grit sand paper and 'filed' the stems flush with the branch groove. Next time I'll trim them a bit before installing by using one of my wife's finger nail files. Once I got the pieces started I put the brass tube in and rolled the complete assembly on my work table (3/4" plywood) and they seated pretty much flush. Great WOW factor! Got it sold already for 85 bucks. Definitely will make more!

My inlay went together with difficulty. Took a lot of pressure to properly seat the components.
Be very careful.

Be sure to flood the design with CA and always "turn down" with sandpaper only. I tried to start a little with tools, the rose caught and blew out into unfindable pieces. I will try it again, but this time, no tools.
Once finished, looks fantastic
When assembling, the red rose portion broke into several pieces that had to invidiually be inserted into the form. Once completed, turned and finished, the end product looked great!
Not for a beginner
Rich the turnarounder
I've put together about 20 inlay pens from different places. After they are initially laser cut, the pieces will tend to twist and warp. You will need to take your time putting them together. Sometimes you will need to use sandpaper, sometimes a little force, sometimes even breaking a piece. I usually save a little dust when sanding in case I need to fix something that chips. Always sand the piece smooth before putting a tool to it. If not, don't be surprised if a piece chips out and gets sucked into your dust collector.
West Bloomfield, MI
Was the first time making a pen. The parts were a little hard to place, was concerned that they would break easily, not the case. Turned out great for a first time project. Used Wall Street II pen kit.
Not for the faint of heart!
This kit, like most of these kits, exhibits poor fit and easy breakage. I found the only way to get the stem in was to break it at the bottom. Fortunately, the break does not show. The leaves are very difficult to install without breaking them into multiple pieces.With enough patience and a deft touch this can be completed and turned into a wonderful pen.
