    A warning to any and all penturners out there

    Never, never under any circumstances store pens of different colours in the same case. Here's what can happen ......



    I stored the pen above with the pen below


    And here's what happened!!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Good job Mack, I see that both pens have some damage, so I guess that you made one out of two. Am I right?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Now that's funny. Mack.

    Toni, I don't think the first two pens are damaged. I think those are reflections and "figure" in the acrylic.

    Pencest is OK as long as you keep it in the family.

    Got me Mack! As I was reading I was wondering what could possibly have happened? LOL
    Very nice looking pens.

    Hi Toni; No damage at all on those pens. That mark on the white one at the tip of the clip isn't there. It has since gone to it's new owner. The red one is still in it's case waiting for a new owner.

    The baby hasn't been put on display yet. I'm betting it doesn't come home with me tomorrow from the Farmer's Market!

    Hi Rob; It is described as a polyester resin, whatever that is.

    Really nice to turn, and comes off in long threads.

    Mack, you eat razor soup for lunch?????


    That was a SHARP joke!!!!!!



    I was hoping you hadn't gotten hurt. Those are beauts!!! You are making my withdrawal pangs to really hitting hard!!! Another week I hope to have my lathe in the new shop. Good luck on selling that baby, don't think anyone will want it, in that event, will send you my address, will see that it is tucked in at night and well "burped/used" throughout the day!!!
