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.

reading the thread and the tutorial I came up with this....

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

If you are flexible enough, pat yourself on the back.
