Instructions / MSDS
Flaw in instructions
I am relatively new to making pens, and this took me a pen or two to figure out what I was doing wrong. I was having problems with the twist mechanism and the pen would rather separate the cap from the body than actually work like it is supposed to. I have found that when assembling the Pen, it is best to screw the twist mechanism fully onto the twist adapter, then press it into cap. This ensures that the pen will not want to separate every time you try to retract the pen. This is just my experience, and I hope it helps.
poor instructions and the kit is so-so
The instructions are not very good , the tenon that is part of the procedures introduces potential problems. There are gaps in the completed pen. There's no accurate way to align the designs from the cap to the body prior to assembly. Nice sized pen but poor execution from instruction to tenon. Whenever I have run into a pen kit that introduces a tenon mid way between cap and body I have run into problems That's my 2 cents, but your mileage may vary.
