Medium CA will set fast enough on its own. If your pens are wood, you can even use PVA glue. The only glue that I would advise against is hide glue.
- Don't put glue down the hole ... that's just asking for a mess because most of the glue will wind up inside the brass tube. First sand the tube lightly and then put glue on the outside of the tube only. Very quickly insert it into the hole while giving it a half twist.
- Please don't tell me that you are spraying accelerator down the hole after the glue has been "smeared around". It sounds like you might be pulling the tube out and spraying and then inserting the tube again. Forget about messing with accelerator because you might be causing the glue to set up before the tube is inserted. Accelerator just makes the glue weaker. Also, forget about wasting time smearing the glue around because there is no need to try to completely cover all surfaces.
