Thank you for the hard work and great photography. My printer is working at this one right now, so I can read through it while I'm on my route today!

Now that is one outstanding tutorial. Although I've played with kitless, I'm not quite ready for this, but I sure learned a lot about breather tubes. I've always been a little fuzzy on exactly how they worked. And this tutorial can also be used by anyone wanting to get started in kitless pens. Thanks!!

Thank you very much Dennis. The tutorial is excellent. You have taken all the guess work out of diving into the kitless world. I only hope you did not give away all your secrets.

I just about have all the tools to get started with my own designs. This along with George's tutorial will be very helpful in getting started.

Thanks again.

Default Correction

Note that there was an incorrect die referenced on page 4. M12 x .75 should have been M10 x .75.

thank you dennis, really great article.
and newcomers to the kitless world should note that this article is not only great for learning how to do the bulb thing, but has very detailed info on closed end, threaded parts, as well as wire clip.

all the way down to the drill bit size and tap size, something other articles leave for the newbie to experiment with.

it's like 5 articles in one!

good work and thanks again
