About this project
It's been awhile since I've made a pen! Welcome to my 16th project: The 'sPEN'!
The 'sPEN' ("Spin + Pen") uses a precision, knurled insert that integrates with the pen barrel. Spin with your fingers! Perfect for fidgeting while writing your next line!
The 'sPEN' uses the Pilot G2 ink refill.
The 'sPEN' knurled spinner is available in:
- Bright Aluminum
- Black Anodized Aluminum
- Blue Anodized Aluminum
- Red Anodized Aluminum.
The 'sPEN' (tip, barrel, cap and end) is precision machined from beautiful 6061-T6 Aluminum.
The optional Pen Stand is ~1.37" diameter and is precision machined from beautiful 6061-T6 Aluminum.
The 'sPEN' cap is postable (can be stored on back of the pen when writing).
The 'sPEN' measures and about 5.87" long (capped) with a .437" diameter.
Risks and challenges
I have successfully delivered several other Kickstarter projects.
The 'sPEN'' will be made in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which eliminates the issue of dealing with out of state machine shops and shipping logistics.
Production costs and allowances have already been established.
My machinists experience and successful delivery of other Kickstarter projects, gives me great insight to production considerations, e.g. how to design the 'sPEN' and time effective production and delivery.
The material used for the 'sPEN' have good availability and are not subject to extreme pricing spikes or shortages.
If I need to ramp up production speed or in the unlikely event I get hit by a bus, I have another local machine shop that will assist.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
