    Parts don't fit

    I've made two of these pens and had problems with the cap and twist mechanism being too small for the tube. I don't have to "press" them into the tube ends, they just go in by hand pushing them in. Consequently, they don't stay. The first pen I ended up gluing the parts to the turned blank (with the tube in it). The second pen was the same, but this one I couldn't get the pen to emerge from the nib. Thankfully, I hadn't glued anything yet. I'll see if my expert at the local Woodcraft store can show me what I'm doing wrong.

    One of the Best Pens

    I have purchased over 40 of this style and I find it a perfect compromise between a nice fitting, lightweight pen and the larger "cigar" pens. The double twist makes it very unique for extending the ink point. The tube tolerances are tight so make sure you're cutting (milling) the wood blanks down to original tube length.

    Nice size and popular pen

    I find this pen to be a perfect size and weight and have sold several because of this. Careful assembly of the upper body is critical. This has been discussed at length on penmaker forums. When assembled properly, this pen has a very smooth twist mechanism. I don't particularly care for the black enameled centerband, but that hasn't stopped it from selling. I would definitely upgrade the refill.
