Not milled properly - poor quality control
One of the bushings that goes into the 25/64" tube has a ledge preventing the pen blank/tube from squaring up with the bushing. There is a significant gap between the end of the blank and where it should meet with the flat shoulder of the bushing. This makes precision more difficult as well as allows any finish you are adding to the pen to flood the gap. The other three bushings are good. This is not a matter of a poorly milled pen blank that is not square. The ledge on the bushing is clearly visible. I see no expanation as to why this would be anything more than a flaw. I have turned hundreds of pens and this is the first bushing that I have come across that is like this. Truly disappointed - I really like the Metro pen kits from what I can tell and I have a customer wanting a large order. I was thinking this may be a good fit but it would be difficult to work with this on such a large order.
