The graceful lines of the Vesper pen help show off your turning prowess. The Vesper is easy to turn with a 10mm single tube. It includes an integrated clip on the cap and a smooth writing Parker ballpoint refill. The integrated stylus tip offers a choice. The stylus tip works on all capacitive touch screen devices such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and similar touch screen devices. The durable rubber tip protects the device's surface from scratches and smudges. To use the Vesper as a normal pen, just click the end cap to advance the nib through a small hole in the stylus. Requires 10mm drill. When using a mandrel to make these pens, the 103039 Bushing Set will be required.

Vesper Click Pen with Stylus TipPen is good quality and easy to assemble, BUT, on the first two pens that I have so far assembled, the fitting of the stylus appears problematical.

A bit disappointedThe pen looks really nice...but unfortunately I bought this to use as a stylus and I'm not convinced it's up to the job. When I tap the screen with the stylus the tip of the ink refil makes contact with the screen. I took great care trimming the barrel so I'm sure I've not shortened the pen in any way that could cause this issue. Also, the durable rubber doesn't feel that durable either. I'm hoping I can trim the top of the ink refil somehow to fix the issue, and will also get advice from Axminster. It has the potential to be a good pen...feels nice and solid, but the issue with the ink nib making contact lets it down for me.
