Cheap and CheerfulThese kits look nice when they are finished and they are cheap as chips. They are not difficult to make. The coned metal part which the ink nib appears through on the end of the pen had to be glued each time because it was a very loose fit. I removed any glue that leaked out off the join between the barrel and cone with very very fine wire wool (as many 000000's as you can get) when the glue was still wet. I used the same technique when applying the hoop. Zap attack gap filling glue is good for the hoop.

Very NiceI'm in the same boat as H.B having only been turning pens for a couple of months, and also have to agree with the comment that this is a great kit at a decent price. I've also used them with acrylics and it makes for quite an expensive looking pen.

Excellent kitA well manufactured kit, that looks great when used with acrylic blanks. Only been turning pens for a few months and these were easy to use.
