Carl,

Quite a few people have made pen over the years with "dots," but there has only been one with holes in the dots, or tubes like you have. The one I am referring to was done with cored solder and not tubes.

That is absolutely beautiful! That is not an easy feat for the inexperienced; your experience as a gem cutter SHOWS through!

I have several small tubes of brass, copper and aluminum just waiting to get into a pen. I haven't had the time or been inspired to do it, But this sure is an inspiration.

Beautifully and skillfully done!

It was interesting figuring out how do it and keep the spacing and stagger even. Thanks, Lee.

Beautiful, here is another idea to try, look up "mosaic pins for knife makers".

Carl, here are a couple of links concerning the Beal Pen Wizard. This is a sturdy and accurate jig that can be used for indexing, spacing and turning. Ideal for situations as you described.
