Nice looking pen. . A few words of description and comment from you, with a few details about sizes and threads would be nice, please.

Itís close to a kaweco sport in size

I just follow basic kitless threading tip like ones posted on this site by Sean Newton for using jowo #6 nib units

If you get the fit of the nib, section and cap down, rest is just details, make it anyway you want

Otherwise I donít really keep notes just get an idea of what I want and do some scratch pad math as I go along

Oh and itís 6061 aluminum which a bit too heavy just what had laying around, a less pure grade may be better as lighter

I just sand with 400 and 800 wet with lacquer thinner then buff with black or grey compound and maybe a dab of semichrome for final polish if needed

One tip I can say Seanís instructions are a general get started, one thing helped me is always use decimal inch as your base line

Then learn principals of thread design in respect to min and max thread dimensions

Because different materials or different desired fits maybe different drills

Example 14 mm and 9/16 very close as a J bits and 7mm , so if doing all math in decimal inch you just pick nearest size drill on the conversation chart and does not matter if imperial or metric, letter etc,, drills

Can get cheap jobber bits in all increments best to have a range +/- your target drill size
