One thing I do is mark the bushings for a pen with notches on the base of the bushings for the order they are mounted. A pass with a triangle file makes a permanent mark.

One notch = nib; two notches = nib center band; etc.

This gives me visual confirmation as to the proper order for the bushings. Messed up a Cigar pen by mounting the bushings in the wrong order and have done this ever since.

I just about did that with a Comfort Pen this weekend. For some reason you get two large bushings and two 8 mm bushings and you have to make sure you get the small one for the top of the pen or you have a swearing jar situation going on.
