    Wow those are really different Dennis, well done. The recipients will be very happy I am sure. Did you just cut the centers of the tops out and cast them?

    Are you running those through a roller to flatten them?

    Dennis pens are wonderful and a really great idea but i am with Larry. One brand at a time. Make mine Samuel Adams. Some years ago it may have been Michelob but they went all light on me unless the last store i looked in down in the US only had light.
    cheers

    My son loves these but I told him they are a lot of work. Really nice pens.

    Thanks everyone for the great comments. Yes Charles I just cut the top of the cap off and cast them. Darren I do not use a roller. What ever size tube I am using I buy a bolt about the same size and bend the cap around the bolt. Then I use a small hammer with a nylon tip and beat the cap around the bolt. This will also take out any dents in the cap. Bought the hammer at Habour Freight. I hope this helps.

    Dennis, welcome to the forum. It's great to see new people here. This is an idea that I've not seen done before. Well done.
