    My first attempt at a kitless pen

    My first attempt at a kitless pen that I turned last week from one of my own blanks, Iíve learnt quite a bit turning this & managed to make a couple of mandrels in the process.

    Looks good Paul, like the metal section with the blank.
    What did you make your mandrels out of ?

    Since it was my first kitless pen, my plan was to use the bock section to make it easier, but then replace it with a custom made section, but I’ve since learnt that I can’t buy the die that is required to do that.

    I bought some brass rod to make them, but I actually used some acetal rod for these to practice on.

    Nice pen Paul, there is something really satisfying about kitless.
