Bullet Shell Pen





Introduction: Bullet Shell Pen

Ever have spent brass lying around and wonder what to do with it? We'll then this is for you.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
- shell casing ( I am using an 8mm but a better shell would be a .223 or .243)
- tape scotch works fine
- Bic pen
- multi tool and or pliers
- adhesive optional

Step 2: Assembly

First take the Bic pen apart with your pliers and remove the ink cartridge and the thing that holds it in place you know the little taper thing. Next remove the taper pice from the ink cartridge and measure with your shell, if it does not fit then start wrapping tape around the part where it is flat till it fits snuggly in the cartridge. Then cut the ink cartridge to size and put back together and into the spent shell. ( make sure the shell is empty never do anything irresponsible with a loaded round I have experience and almost lost a friend that way). Then if you want feel free to super glue the ink cartridge in the shell. Then viola you have a shell pen!

    Uhh What do you mean by taper thingy?

    I learned to make them at school, and then went and bought a wood lathe haha. old Rockwell lathe. if you want you can order some sweet kits at craftsuppliesusa.com I'll post some instructables later about them.

    Yea I saw those i just got a wood lathe but were almost. Done fixing it up so I will be working on that too. I make wooden pens on the wood lathes at school during my free period (me and my tech teacher are really good friends and hunting partners so) but I gave them away as gifts haha!

    thats really cool, I buy kits from a website and hand turn pens on my wood lathe. They arnt actual bullet shells, but they look like it.

    Again any questions please comment and I enjoy a good chat so please if you'd like we could do that to
