Use sand paper to lightly sand the outside of the brass pen barrels. Unsanded Sanded This will help the glue to secure the pen barrel inside your wood.
If working with super glue, apply it to inside of your material. Warning: Do not glue your fingers together!!!
Gently blow out excess glue. Warning: Do not breathe super glue fumes OR GLUE YOUR LIPS TO THE PEN!!!
Roll the sanded barrel in the excess glue. Roll it again as you insert it into your material to make sure it is well glued. Warning: Do not glue your fingers to the wood!!!
Let the super glue dry thoroughly BEFORE moving on to the next step. Absolute minimum of 30 minutes!
Cut off any excess material beyond the end of the glued barrel. Cut Here Warning: Do not cut the brass barrel or your pen will be too short! End View Side View Cutaway
Use the 7mm reamer vise to clean out the dry glue and square the end of your material. Recommendations: 1.Make sure reamer is not bent and is tightly aligned in drill chuck. 2.Wipe down reamer between uses. 3.A small drop of 3-in-1 oil on reamer will help smooth reaming process.
Align your material if using wood. Remember the marks you made?
Mount your material on the lathe spindle. Warning: Don’t use worn-out spacers. This will cause the ends of your pen to be too narrow. Be sure to use the 7mm spacers.
