Very good, How do you manage CA glue to such a smooth result?

Terry try this
I tried a lot of different techniques and wasted a lot of time before I found this. The Camo Pen does not have any sanding on the CA/BLO finish. I have finally got to where I can hit the finish every time. The finish will be hard enough to handle as soon as you finish the pen but I let them stay out of the case for a couple of days to make sure they are completely dry. I’m not an expert on pens but if I can help let me know. The video is by William Young.

Looks great. I use the CA finish myself but never use the BLO with it. Just build up lots of thin layers of CA and let it dry naturally between coats wiped on with paper towel and then sand with wet and dry sand paper wet up to 1200 grit. Then a final polish with a plastic polish called NOVA.

I have noticed some woods when the dust from sanding touches the CA on the paper towel it gets very hot and can even smoke a little.

Have your say...
