New secret CA finish, eh? If I had to guess, I'd say you changed the color of your socks.

Thanks for the kind words everyone . This is the kind of pen I enjoy making the most , I just wish I could make the transmissions my self as well . There are several challenges to making something like this but nothing that anyone who can turn a kit pen couldn't do if they tried . The hardest part is step drilling the holes and even that is not that hard , you just have to layout and measure everything accurately . This is also a perfect reason for having a collet chuck , while it could be done with just an adjustable mandrel the collet chuck makes it so much easier .
If you haven't checked out Dennis's Challenge thread , go check it out and "Challenge" yourself .
I didn't put a clip on this one because I was trying for the illusion of a cigar but a clip could be easily added to the design with only a slight modification .
I may divulge my CA finish at some point in time but it goes against every other CA finish application I have ever read about or heard of and I don't want to argue with those who will say "You can't do that" . All I will say is that I have used it on several woods that people have problems with and it worked on everyone without any problems , It can be left as a beautiful satin finish or buffed to a high shine with equal ease . Be expecting to see allot more of it in the future .
