    Default Making a kitless pen

    Having played around with the various processes involved in making a kitless pen, and also making some extra tooling to make the job easier, I have finally finished my first complete one.

    I have attached some pics as well as a tutorial.

    Ah, this is superb Fred, thank you very much. I've been toying with the idea of doing this for a while, this has given me the impetus. This should also be put into the library.

    Thanks once again.

    the grip section is home made and uses a M10x1 into the body

    the cap thread is a triple start M14x0.8

    the Cap uses friction to post
