  1. My dad got a lathe for Christmas and he immediately started turning pens for me and my mom. What are your recommendations for good sources for the pen mechanics? He's less familiar with the writing aspect than the woodworking and wants to make sure he gets good parts. Thank you!
  2. My name is Jeremiah, and I am a designer of consumer goods. I have manufactured one of many of the pens I have designed (I have to do them one at a time due to costs associated with the process). Id like to know what the general initial impression is of the design, materials, color, etc.? Thank you for any positive and/or negative feedback!
  3. Hello, I'm interested in learning how to make a fountain pen section that will accept a JoWo nib/feed assembly. I'd like to start by using easily available and inexpensive pen bodies, like the Jinhao x750. However, I am not married to this pen - I just know it is cheap and easily sourced. My understanding is that the #6 JoWo assembly needs m7 .4 x .5 taps. And that's about all I know, haha. Is there is a way to build a section that will work with a Jinhao x750 and accept the JoWo assembly? I'd be interested to learn about 3d printing or basic pen turning if there are low cost options. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

    Carbon Fiber Pen

    Do any of the pen makers here have experience using carbon fiber in a made from scratch pen? I recently purchased a pen made from a kit with a carbon fiber tube and cap, which is really beautiful, but it is a bit heavier than I prefer. Thanks, Grayling
  5. Where can I buy pen blanks that resemble the disc celluloid of the Parker Vacumatic or the Visconti Wall Street? Thanks!
  6. I'm rather fond of the old ringtops, but they have a bad habit of dropping off from their caps. Has anyone ever tried to create a more secure modern version of these little wonders?
