Latest Stylus Pen Combos

The first one was made using Thuya Burl with stock Black & Chrome plated components. The second one was made using Amboyna Burl. It was assembled with all Platinum, & Black Titanium plated components from a few other kits to give it the upgraded platings.

These look beautiful

How did you adapt the top section of the pen kit to accept the silicone tip?

The Black & Chrome pen is a stock Wall Street II Stylus pen. For the Amboyna Burl pen another kit was used for some parts. I took a Platinum & Black Titanium Sierra kit for the better plating. The finial is from a Platinum & Black Titanium Button Click so it had a hole that worked for the stylus tip. The stylus tip is from the stock kit.

I took these all apart & changed the parts around to have an all Platinum & Black Titanium Stylus pen. The bottom picture shows the stock Black & Chrome finial next to the Platinum finial & the Chrome finial I replaced.

Very cunning ... use a hole that already exists so you don't have to make a new one ...

Thanks!

You have to take the button click finial apart. The hole is slightly smaller than the stylus finial but it fits nicely.

Great looking pens James, they are 2 of the
best pens I have ever seen. I love the idea of
mixing the different fittings, it certainly makes
them unique, a nice thinking outside of the box
for sure. Well done.
