Default Spiritual pen kit

I am looking for a religious or sriritually themed pen kit. I have looked at the faith, love, hope kit but the reviews arenít very good. There are apparently problems with the fit. Does anyone know of any good kits in a spiritual/religious theme?

Interesting, as I have turned a half dozen faith, love, hope kits and not noticed any unique issues.

The issue I have seen and read about were gaps near the cap and center band portions. Maybe they have recently corrected the problem?

I have done one F,H,L pen and did not have any problems with fit. I did it in Bethlehem Olive Wood and it looks great. I got the three pack and will definitely be making more, as I suspect they will be popular. I like the looks of the one from Signature, too. Sort of a Pastor's Pen feel to it.

Thatís two votes for thr FLH pen not having problems. Maybe they have worked out the issues it had. Could you tell me where you bought the three pack from Brian? Iíll give it a shot and hopefully it works out. I reaaly lime the looks of those pens.

I got the starter three pack from PSI. Good deal with the bushings and didn't happen to have the drill bits, either.

Default Spiritual pen kit

I have gotten my FHLs from both WoodTurningz and Exotic Blanks, who each resell the PSI kits typically at a lower price than PSI. Just looked at one I still have in inventory as well as one my wife claimed. No noticeable gap. If held up to the monitor, you can see a crack of light but no different than other non-tenon center bands I have. No noticeable deflection at the tiny gap when held up to light and side pressure applied.

One thing to remember on the FHL ballpoint is that the top is heavy. I like to turn 4 or 5 different profiles and have noticed if I turn the bottom half with a heavily tapered or very slim profile, the pen feels out of balance to me. So, keep a little more meat on the bottom half, at least 1:1 ratio with the top and it makes all the difference.
