I really like the Triton. I've built several and will definitely be making more.
Here's a couple that I did recently. http://www.penturners.org/forum/f13/gift-our-new-pastor-120125/
My only complaint with this kit is that the threaded insert is a bit difficult to press into the top barrel. I made a mistake when assembling one pen & tried to disassemble it but the insert would not budge, so I just gave up & accepted the mistake. I think the insert is a bit too long & will try cutting it down to about half its length for the next pen - that should make it easier to install & perhaps make it possible to remove if necessary.
Thanks for the tip, Ed. I will look into that.Do whatever you like, Ed, but you may want to do a few searches about the older style Jr. Gent II. (The black plastic insert was too short---caused problems --I really don't remember what, but I am pretty certain you will find threads to confirm this)
What I do is use a brass tube set from a Jr Gen II that will give you a longer lower barrel. When assembling the lower barrel, I remove the plastic cap off the refill, cut about a forth of it off, and insert the smaller part in the end cap of the bottom barrel. When you insert the spring the plastic cap will raise the refill to the proper level.The Triton has a good look but the lower barrel is a bit short.
do you know what size the nibs are?Tritons are very nice pen sets. The fountain nibs are ok, but I almost always upgrade them to a heritage nib or a bock nib. For me, the Triton is a very comfortable pen to write with. I am partial to the Chrome / Ti Gold set myself.
