Steampunk ink Pen. Or Second life of old pen.

The story: How to give a second life to your old favorite pen?

This ink pen was custom built to bring to life gold plated ink pen from 196x. Customer order: " Build it with real balance and maximum usage of old parts as simple as you possibly can. Without any decoration." All parts were created from one brass piece using lathe machine. Wall sickness ranging from 1mm to 0,3 mm. It took a long time for me to build it to the spec and reach the maximum satisfaction of customers order.

What you need:

1. If you have later you will need one solid piece of brass.

2. If you have no latre you'll need brass pipes, sheet brass.

3. Screw tap and die.

4. Soldering iron.
