Hi folks, here are two Long Click ballpoint pens that I wanted to share with you all, both are gold titanium and have acrylic bodies, the blanks were bought on this forum ages ago but I wish I had bought more! :frown:

Thanks for looking and comments are very welcome! :)

Beautiful looking pens Mark! I havent tried those kits yet but like how you really get to appreciate what the blank has to offer. Nice job!

Good job.

Question, how did you drill them out? Drill press? Lathe? I find it to be a challenge to drill long tubes and usually do them on the lathe.

Thanks.

Very nice. I just ordered my first long click kits and am eager to see how they perform. Yours look great.

Hi Chris

I drill on my lathe most of the time, it is more accurate I find than my drill press even with one of Paul`s vices. I bought long jaws to fit my Nova 2 chuck on my DVR xp. See picture for more detail. :)

I had a couple of those blanks. Mine never looked nearly that good, maybe I should have let you take the pictures and turn them.:)

Very nice! I'm working on a long click right now. I hope it turns out as well as yours did.
