    Am I allowed to post Canadian Flag pens?

    I don't hear a resounding boo, so here goes!



    The flags etc. are purchased in kit form and added to the pen after turning. The above pen is called a Sierra Click. It's plated in Blk. Ti. Gold & Platinum.



    This pen is a Sedona Rollerball, plated in Chrome.

    I trust I haven't offended anybody on this forum by posting these.

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

    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Beautiful as always Mack. How are those clicker pens for putting together and for durability?? The early click pens I bought a few years back were pretty finicky and not something that was totally reliable so I didn't make any to sell. I do realize this is a couple of steps up in kit quality in itself, but was just wondering. Oh yeah, you offended me, your fine is sending me that pen!!!!!

    Beautiful as always Mack.
    Hi Jonathon; You always say that!
    How are those clicker pens for putting together and for durability??
    Very simple to put together and they feel very smooth in the click. I haven't sold many, but none have been returned so far. I have some orders for the Sierra and will be using the Elegant Beauty. It's a twist in top of the line platings. My Canadian dealer hasn't brought the click in the Elegant Beauty in yet.
    Oh yeah, you offended me, your fine is sending me that pen!!!!!
    I wish I could afford to send one to each and everyone of my friends!

    Mack, trust me, I always say that about your pens because they are always stunning/beautiful/outstanding and all of the rest of the positive adjectives in the dictionary. Your attention to detail from selecting the blank and kit to the finish and assembly shows from one end to the other!!!! Will be another pen I show to my students!!!

    Mack, those are great. Very fine.
    To answer your question: I'm not a mod anymore but I would fight vigorously to allow posting of any member made item showing a Canadian/Japanese/Spanish/whatever flag.
    We can't talk politics, dirty or religion here. But pride in a national flag is not proscribed under those rules. I believe, if it were, I would be gone real quick.
    BTW, look at my current avatar. If that's permitted and your pens weren't.....war my friend, war.

    Hi Frank; If the truth were known I chose my title with a little tongue in cheek knowing full well it would be accepted by all members on this great forum!
