Looks Great, Works Perfectly
The kit that I received works just great and was very easy to assemble. Why the odd sized Letter 'V' tube instead of a more standard sized tube is a mystery and an irritant.
Mechanism does not work on some kits
I really love these pens, when they work. I have made 5 of these so far. Of those, 3 did not work. You flick your wrist to extend and retract the ink. For 3 of the kits that mechanism would not work. I was easily able to return them to the Woodcraft store and they were happy to exchange them for me so no harm done. I have bought more kits since then and will continue to make more as I think these will make excellent Christmas gifts. The pens are good quality, small, and I really like the fact that they have a stylus on the end. Easy to make with only one tube. I can make 2-3 kits in an evening in the workshop. So as long as you have a Woodcraft store nearby to exchange any bad kits, I do recommend these kits.
Cool Pen, inertia device stcks
I was at Woodcraft and saw these on a display so I purchased 2 (a gray and a blue). I made the blue pen with a molten acrylester blank I purchased with the pen. The kit calls for a letter V bit. None in the store and I didn't want to wait to order so I used a 25/64 bit and it worked fine. When the pen was completed it was the coolest looking pen I ever made. It took a very hard flick of the wrist to make the pen tip come out. When I flicked it again to retract the pen it would not fully retract unless I pushed the tip against the paper. Disappointing. I made the second (gray) pen. The inertia mechanism worked fine on this one. The wrist flick required was noticeably less to make it work. Hopefully the first one was an anomaly and not the norm. I will purchase more, but I will test the inertia mechanism before I make the pen so I don't waste a good blank.
