    Had to Make Some More .....

    Shredded Canadian Paper Currency Sierra ballpoints to replace the 6 that I sold to an Accountant this spring.

    Those are outstanding. A question, do you glue the money to the tube before you cast it? The things people are casting is amazing.

    Thanks John,

    Yes, the shredded currency is glued to the brass tube.

    I'd say they are right on the money

    Really Les, they are super and one of a kind!

    Looks great, Les. Because of the color variety, I think the Canadian bills look better than American ones.

    Thanks Larry,

    I heat the resin to the consistency of water, add the catalysis and pour slowly into Resin Saver mold.
    Any of the few bubbles to do show up I deal with using a tooth pick.

    Do you include the cost of the money in your pricing, or do you have a friend at the Mint where they destroy old bills? These are great pens.
