    First Batch of Pendants

    I've had the deluxe pendant gizmo from Richard Joyner for several months and have played with it off and on since then. Here are a few of the pendants turned so far...nothing complicated yet... SWMBO likes them simple. She likes to add them to necklaces to jazz them up and now has a new excuse to shop for necklaces on sale--so this didn't save me any money . Shown are: Bloodwood, Silver Maple Burl, Cocobolo, Ebony, Zebrawood and a collection of discs awaiting a suitable necklace. All sanded to 600 then buffed with tripoli, white diamond and renaissance wax.

    Gizmo pics...Here are pics of my backer plate which is available from Richard Joyner (richard@creativependesign.com). There are two videos by Ed Davidson aka Yo Yo Spin that show the gizmo in action and explain it much better than I ever could. Also a nice tutorial at http://www.penturners.org/forum/show...hlight=pendant Hope that helps and these links are permitted.

    Good looking pendents Ted. My backer plate is on the road. I just talked with Richard today. Nice guy and willing to answer any questions.

    Great looking pendants Ted!. I've had my backer plate for about 6-8 weeks but it's simply been too cold out in the shop for my to give it a try. I bought a box or Corian blanks as well. Hope to try it out soon. Very well done!
