I have some pens for troops. I noticed upon inspection that some of the CA finishes are really bad. I had applied it while the lathe was slowly turning. The CA is rough and has spirals in it. :frown: I found a magazine article that said to apply the finish of any kind with the lathe off, applying with the grain of the blank and turn the lathe by hand. These Slimline pens are completely assembled. Any suggestions as to reworking the finish to smooth it out? Thanks.
