Default Still learning

Iíve been working on some kitless pens lately and here are a few pics of what Iíve made.


I still have much to learn, but they are coming along nicely. Saving up for a larger large so I can cut threads better. My little 7x12Ē grizzly doesnít like to keep the lead screw activated and pops out of gear occasionally. Let me know what you all think and if there is anything you see immediately that needs work.

Thanks, Anthony.
And Merry Christmas!

These are fantastic - good for you.
Quick questions -
First -tell me about the rings on the top pen. Can I assume that you assembled them over a tenon (not swaging them on)? And a source for the rings?
Second - can I assume that the wood pens are done with a brass tube (or similar material) inside?
(Sorry to blast you with questions but it appears that you have very successfully conquered a few battles I am preparing to fight. Remember - imitation is the greatest flattery. These are really finely done.)

Those are nicely done. What kind of piston did you use on the piston filler?

Great pens!
I wish I could see the wooden ones uncapped.
It seems you have very short cap to barrel threads, or do I misjudge them?
