Chuck, I haven't tried this way yet but the more I think about it, the more I think it might a better way than I'm doing now. I believe this might make for a stronger end piece.

Are those plated rings, solid brass or solid gold?

Thanks George, as I told Fred, I just found it was posted. These bands are solid brass, without coating. I have a few pens made this way, and have noticedthe brass darkening. I grab some polish, and see how big of a deal it is to shine 'em up. I found this method a bit easier for ME. May, or may not be for everyone.

Would it help to put a few coats of CA on when finishing?

Hey Chuck great job on the article! Thanks for sharing it. I'll definitely try this on my next pen. Sure wish I would have seen it last night before I repaired my Casein cap, putting metal in there would have helped a lot.
