Default Welcome!

Welcome to the Advanced Pen Making forum!

The purpose of this forum is to discuss design possibilities and challenges beyond those normally associated with kit pens. Making a closed end pen is a nice modification and is one step away from a total kit pen. Making a closed end pen where you make your own threads in the barrel, and do away with the brass tubes and bushings is another step. Disassembling the nib and making a custom nib holder is yet another step. Deciding to make your own center bands, accent rings and clips is really customizing your craft. The challenges and hurdles you meet along the way to reaching these milestones is what this forum is all about.

It would be beneficial and expected for those participating and posting on this forum to at least have a working knowledge of kit fabricating and finishing methods as these topics are discussed elsewhere on the forum.

This forum is not designed to discourage anyone from continuing to make kit pens but is to explore alternatives and possibilities beyond brass tubes and bushings.

Thanks to George Butcher for recommending that we create this forum, and for supplying the welcome message above.
