Pens look great. I would have made the body of the Jr. Gent flat to the ends to better match the straight cap.

I had thought about that but figured the rest was kind of beefy looking made the body that way too.. it isn't uncomfortable which is nice. The cap weighs a good amount though.

Impressive! I've not seen that before. Make a very unique looking pen. Nice job. Where does a person find such springs?

I found the spring going through some hardware in my Dad's shop.

Probably find them at any Lowe's, Home Depot, or Hardware store.

He has a whole mess load of spring, I was trying to find the one with the closest diameter for the tube to fit in.

Nice pens Larry, but lose the 'background' since it takes away from a very intersting design. The background just seems to camouflage your nice work.

Thanks, I should take a photo of it on a white background. I've just gotten in the habit of taken them on top of the pen case I have.

Had an issue with the larger of these 2 pens. I had it stored that night within a plastic PSI pen pouch. I noticed a few days later some white marking on the inside of the pouch. When I pulled the pen out on the clip side near the screw cap was this same white marking. Looked as if it lost the shine and something was gunky on there. I haven't tried to remove it yet except by wiping with my finger which didn't do much good. I'm wondering could it have been the glue vaporizing a day or so later that caused this. Only thing I can figure. If so I might let me pens air out for a few days before storing. Any thoughts? I'll try and get a picture soon before I do anything to it.
