They are pretty precise. Precision is important – especially on pens with a very small profile or are tapered almost down to the brass tubes. If you have a lot of slop or blow out at the edges, your pen will chip out at the tips when you get down to the bushings.

With that said, I haven’t had any problems gluing tubes with thin CA, or if your glue is warm (it’s freezing here so my glue is a little thicker) medium CA. If you have been using thick, gel, or epoxy, you are going to have some issues.
