Go easy on yourself Tony, a lot of us "hacks" are just fine with turning standard kit pens. I like it, and rarely post the cap anyhow. I feel it throws the balance off, at least in my smallish hand. I'm also a sucker for blues.

How did you like turning the blank? I found Rhinoplastic to both turn and polish well, and prefer them over Alumilite for the shine you can get - which is why I prefer PR to Alumilite in general. It chipped a bit until I got it round then peeled off in nice long ribbons that made a huge mess, just the way I like.
