    Not my making but a gift from a mate.Yes it will work as a spanner. It was cut from a plate of 3/8 Stainless Steel.Yes it was cut out then drilled and tapped either end and a method of holding the refill and bringing it forward and back fitted. I showed it to you so you could see how normal taps and dies can be used in a pen.

    As for the cap and body you can use any threaded tap that suits your requirements, the only thing I would say is buy a fine metric thread.

    There are special double and triple start taps and dies out there specific for kit-less lens, but I would recommend trying stock taps and dies first to see how you get on with kitless pen making,
    What Eamonn said.
    I have used both fine and course thread to make kitless pens.
    I later bought some 10.75 and 12.75 taps and dies from epay to make kitless baron style pens and got my taps for the nib feeder from Phil.
