    Rejected by the caster for some reason.

    My friend in BC is casting these blanks and offering them for sale through a Canadian retailer. This one was rejected by her QC Inspector, who also happens to be her man as well! She marked the defects in 2 places and offered it to me free gratis.


    Here's 2 views of it. Neither of which I can find a defect!

    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!

    well... I'd say you 'worked around' the defects quite well. Mack. who knows, perhaps he has 'high standards'... which You evidently exceeded with your turning skills.

    Your magic Mack, turned it from reject to excellent.

    That would seem like a great pen to me for a Breast Cancer cause donation to be raffled as a prize.
    cheers

    Mack that is a fine looking pen. If it has defects I can't see them.
