No Plumbers Crack Here

This pen started out as a sort of a Steam Punk theme but I am not to sure how true that is on the finished pen.
It all started at Home Depo looking at the brass plumbing parts and went from there.
This pen has a brass cap, union, 2 inch threaded 1/8 pipe and some copper wire.
I had a small piece of ebonite, a Waterman clip and a clicker unit from Richard Greenwald.

First I had to wrap the copper wire around the brass pipe between the cap and the union.

Then I had to turn smooth.

And then polish.

Next I had to find a clip that would work and make up a section which I used ebonite.
