Default Gear Shift Antique Pewter Rhinoplastic

I made this at the request of the client. I think it is a decent kit. I did add a drop of red LT to the screws that secure the clip. I have had them loosen on similarly clipped kits. Actually, the clip arrived loose.

It takes majestic squire bushings. It is a nice pewter. It is my horrific picture taking skills that make this look bronze.

Nice pen Tony. Is the clip a source of problems that is known. I just sent one out to a friend recently and did not notice it. I may have to make him aware of it if it becomes a problem and ask to have it back so I can fix it. Will check in the future for this. I hate when these manufactures can't make a decent pen kit without all these moving parts. That is one reason I hate gimmick pens.

I am with you (unless a client insists :-)). I do warn them, Some clients say that is going to be displayed, not used. At least, this can be "cured" somewhat. The rest of the parts included the BA transmission seemed well-made. A third of my sales/request are novelty pens. None have come back, but that doesn't mean all are still operating properly.

Thanks for the replies.

Very nice pen Tony as is the photo. Have to agree with JT, I'm not into the gimmick pens and fortunately haven't been asked to make any. Although they do seem to sell well. My "novelty" pens center more around the wood than the actual pen. I guess I kinda got it easy in that respect.

Very nice Tony. I really like the rhinoplastic blanks, they’re one of the few I buy instead of using my own.

Nice Gear Tony. Nice combo choice. For the past few years I only bought and made novelty pens. Never had a problem or return.... except for the Shock Absorber Pen. Novelty Pens...I enjoy making, gifting, selling, donating to fund raisers. They are a great approach to pen turning. They help keep the hobby flowing. Not for everyone but nothing negative about them.

Looks good Tony. Thanks for the tip on the clip. I don’t have any of this particular kit, but I do have 2 unused kits in the drawer with that style clip.
