    Toasty!

    Well I can start tagging my work now! After some PM's with Bernie and some calls to Jim Adkins, this showed up in the mail today. I'm working on a platter/basket that Jim Adkins posted a tutorial for on another forum. I had no idea I was getting 5 pens, expected 3. It looked like they tossed in 2 extra as gratis...my kinda place. 2 skews, 2 ball tips; lrg and sm, and a writing tip were included. Found a ball grinder (?) tip for my Dremel so I'm going to take my lack of artistic expression to a much lower level!!
    Going to start slow, but this will be fun!

    Jeepers. I just used a small soldering iron to sign a mallet I made for Dan at Saroyan hardwoods.

    I think it would have been better if I used something like you now have.

    Have fun and be artistic with it.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Nice score Jim. Cloning Jim A's work is an ambitious start! There doesn't seem to be much down time in your down time.... good for you!

    Good for you, Jim. What brand is it? Let us know how you like it.

    You're pretty busy for someone who doesn't feel well. Maybe you should come up here for R&R and supervise me in my shop!
