October is the month for pumpkins, colorful leaves and Halloween costumes. For many woodworkers, it’s the time of year when the weather cools down and they get back into their workshops. It’s also the perfect opportunity to create some fabulous “pink” pens in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Don't waste your money
The o rings are cheap and no instructions came with the kit. Better seam ripper kits can be found elsewhere for cheaper

This is an update to my earlier review. I've made and sold several of these. A couple of hints for assembly. After gluing up, I use a rotary tool with a small brass brush to clean up the ends of the brass tubing. I also spray some silicon on a cotton swab and spread it around the inside of the tube to make the O-ring easier to slide. The O-rings are a pain to put on, and if lost or broke (and you will) it's really hard to find a replacement. I usually don't put on the pocket clip. Some buyers have asked me to remove them. Also some users prefer a bit of a lip at the end to give them something to push against when ripping. Nice kit and goes together well.
Pretty nice kit
I just finished a kit. It was the first time I ever turned this type of item (with pen/seam ripper mandrel). It was somewhat confusing when setting up the turning and mandrel, but it seem to end up OK. I think I got the wrong size bushing on the wrong end, and even after finishing it, I'm still not sure. The clip isn't the handiest if you make a fatter handle. I had to bend it to fit better, but it works OK. The O-rings are finicky to install and I have some reservations as to their durability. I used a rotary tool with a brass brush to clean up the inside of the brass tube before I put the sharp end together. All-in-all, a pretty simple gadget. My quilter wife likes it, and has ordered some for Christmas gifts. If she likes it, I like it.
This is a good project but the o-rings tend to break easy. Use a little Vaseline to help protect the o-rings
