My son loves it.

Steve Posted February 26, 2014
Turned this for my 20 yr. old son, a music/piano major in college. Needless to say he was surprised. I made sure I used plenty of super glue and my home made carbide tools. The only issue was bleed over from the dark wood to the light. Would not hesitate to purchase and turn more.

A bit frustrating

I've done 5 or 6 different inlay kits. This one has been the most frustrating. I've purchased 4 kits and have only one pen to show; they keep exploding right as the blank is almost complete. I only need to complete 2 pens for family. Will need to reorder again.

This is a follow-up to the...

This is a follow-up to the review I did on 4-7-2013. First and foremost, let me say kudos to Rockler customer service. Frankly, I was amazed. After I did that review, I had not looked at the item again until I happened to notice it had a review posted about mid September. I checked it out and lo and behold it was mine! I read the editor's note and decided to follow up. Understand... this is 5 months later! I had bought the pen in Houston, and paid cash. Rockler sent me a replacement immediately. Again, Rockler's customer service is top notch in my book. This time when I worked the pen. I glued it up according to the directions as before. Again, I did notice that there was a slight gap between the white keys and the solid black background {pianist side of the keys}. This time, before turning, I filled the gap with CA glue and basically slathered it all over the keyboard area. New carbide tip on the tool. All went well until I was shaving the ends down to the bushing diameter. At that point a section of the black split off. Luckily it was a clean blow out and I was able to glue it back in with CA glue. Let is set up well, finished turning it and it has turned into a beautiful pen. I'd say this design is perhaps a little flawed because there is a built in weakness due to the linear design of the keyboard and the proximity of the tube end. As in this case it was not insurmountable, but I would say this is not a kit for beginners by any means. I also wonder if CA glue might not be better than epoxy for gluing up the tube. Just a thought. I will try a laser kit again, but I will try to avoid any design that has straight lines running to the end of the tube. And, once again, I have no complaints with how Rockler handled this. Thanks, Rockler!
