Default Cracking Stopped...pen disassembled.

The cracking stopped progressing.

I used my PSI pen-disassembly kit to salvage most of the parts. I wasn't able to reduce the middle section with the center band and delrin without damaging it, so I left it alone. I called PSI and ordered a replacement for that part, which they had in stock.

Dawn, although I don't think this is the fault of the blank, I'd be happy to send you the pieces if you'd like to analyze them further.

Thanks for the input, guys, I really appreciate it.

Toby, I don't know if I will be able to tell anything from the pieces. But I am curious, and wouldn't mind taking a look at them.

Meanwhile, I have some replacements on the way to you!!
