Turning Archive 2004
Jim Shaver Oakville, Ont
I am at a loss, not sure what to do so I will ask for help.
Last night while turning a few pens I ran into a problem with a Mt Blanc pen. I turned a nice green acrylic pen blank and assembled the pen, but..once the transmisson was pressed in it would not turn. I tried to gently get it to twist with the aid of piece of leather and a Jorg clamp, but no luck. I am wondering if there is a way to extract this part for the pen without damaging the pen, I would hate to loose not just the pen kit, but the pen blank as well.
I have throught about drilling it out but I am afraid I will really make a mess of things,
Any advice is appreciated,
