Hi guys. I need help please. I make various pens both acrylic and wood. On wood I sometimes use Chestnuts melamine which gives you a satin finish. people like a ca finish though and yet. I’ve turned my wooden pen, I always clean the inside of the tube especially the ends, then apply ca. Then polish. Then assemble the component parts and here’s my problem. The nib end being the thinnest sometimes splits the ca as the nib connector goes in. It happens every now and then. Interestingly on some of the slimmest pens I’ve made it’s never happened. Has anyone got any ideas, tips? Or is this a reason to stabilise blank first. many thanks, Steve.
