    Braided SS

    For future 30 Cal Bolt Action Pens.
    Doing some with polished brass tubes and some with white tubes and some with black tubes.

    Looks like the old finger traps. Those should make great looking pens.

    Looks good so far, Les. When you make a blank like that, do you turn the clear acrylic just shy of the braid?

    Bill,
    The braid once installed around the tube has a slightly smaller diameter than the OD of the components leaving enough PR covering the braid to turn to match the components without hitting the braid.
