    First Circuit Board Cigar!

    Just finished this afternoon. Never turned one of these before. Hoping an IT guy or gal takes a liking to it. Man those blanks are expensive (relatively speaking)!

    The blanks are also available in black, blue, orange, red & white. What do you think?

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    That a great looking pen there Mack... good work.

    I've never made one, but had 4 or 5 in inventory of a fellow I do some consignment selling for... he asked if I needed some pens for my permanent booth that I opened last year and showed up with a box of over 150 pens... so far I've sold all of his circuit board pens except the blue one.... rest went like crazy.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Beauty Mack. I think the green would be the top seller.

    I had dan noren make me one back in sept so I could give it as a gift to my son for his 30th.

    He loved the pen, didnt even let me get a picture of it, but it was great looking pen. Its for a certain type of person. worth the money, as its more than a pen, its a conversation piece.

    simple simon stuff for you mack.

    Looks great

    I may have to try my hand at one at some point. I can't be a computer geek & a wood worker with access to the spinny stuff without one for too long...
