I finished up a few Vail roller balls this morning. I had finished turning the barrels several days ago and got around to the assembly this morning.
I still have a few more of these discontinued pen kits that I'll peck away at in the next few weeks. I was daydreaming when I was turning the clip end of the grey one and went undersize. It was an alluminite blank of unknown origin that just turned way too easy so I got careless. It still happens from to time to time and keeps us back on track.

Blanks L to R : Berea AA-03(BTW) ; Berea AA-304(BTW) ; InvisaBlank Black/blue ; Unknown ; California Van Gogh ( old Exotic Blanks -gift from a friend )

I'm not familiar with the Vail kit.

Your results look very good, James !! . Thanks for showing !!

I especially like the 5th pen ... I think that is the Van Gogh blank .

The Vail was something that BearToothWoods used to sell. I think it was designed by Ernie but for some reason they stopped getting them made.
