Thanks Ron:

Barrel threads   are subject to a lot of stress  . You just may want to shore up  your work by installing an inner sleeve such as a  brass nipple fashioned for  rod stock  milled/ sanded to fit to provide  extra strength.


Speaking of the Wearever Company , I just  located and toured its' facility at North Bergen  New Jersey


They were among the most prolific writing instrument  produces , supplier to the masses

Plants  in  Manhattan  North Bergen,  Mexico City, Mx and Deer Lake, Pa

once  employed  up to 3,000 workers.
