Default My First Post - Jr. Statesman II Buckeye Burl

I've been reading the forums here for a little while and haven't really had a reason to post, but will start to be a little more active. I thought I'd share a pic of my latest pen. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Very nice piece of buckeye ! Pen body appears to be a bit overturned at the nib end and under turned at the cap end , but pictures can be deceiving and I may be totally wrong .

I think the pen looks really nice as well.

Not sure if it applies for your pen but I made a mistake with my first Jr Stateman pen. I didn't notice that the body bushings were different sizes. Is it possible you installed the hardware backwards from your bushing placement when turning? The bushing near the ink tip is the larger of the two. If you know how you could carefully use punches to remove the hardware from the tube and reinstall reversed to correct it.

Edit: I noticed the title says Jr Statesman II...so I'm not sure if the bushing sizes are the same as what I normally use.

Yep, I put the endcap on the wrong end. I was wondering if anyone would notice :) I'm picking up a set of punches tonight to fix it.

Not a great photo, and the pen's not perfect but at least I put this one together correctly :)

Yes, a group of penturners WILL SEE that. Now, the average person probably will not.

Great pen for your first pic posted!!
