Not everything in pen making goes smooth the Camphor cross cut Bolt Action I had made I had removed to much from the Camphor section making the nib project out to far so a new centre of Camphor was turned at the right length.
A Fountain Pen a Baroness I made some time ago and sold recently had formed a crack this is a replacement again in Tassie Blackwood hope the owner is pleased with this one.
During turning of any material including pens be it wood or acrylic a catch or tool dig in can happen or even material movement. I had such with an acrylic which left half of it intact. I turned the remaining portion to a clean edge and drilled and fitted a piece of False Ivory this came out better than I had imagined it makes the colour of the top half stand out much more than they would have as a whole.
I ventured out into the 40C and finished polishing the new cap timber this time Tassie Myrtle Burl.
