more wallstreet 2's, and a princeton.(the slimline will not go out, I was unhappy with the ca glue I used, thick, and I worked on smoothing it out twice, polishing it, so my wife got the pencil, the pen will be used by us to fill out the jumble or crossword puzzle)the slimline was made from the pack of 10 predrilled rosewood blanks.
I turned 2 pens yesterday , a walnut wallstreet, and another blue acrylic wallstreet 2(the other half of that blue acrylic blank) but we had went out to dinner with a couple, and they each took one.(smokin als, I had a full rack of baby backs, garlic mashed, mac and cheese,which the wife took, pulled pork nachos for an appetizer, was worth every cent)
(the walnut only got 6 coats of ca, and I didnt wait a day to cure, I just polished it up, he was anxious for it)
that other blank in the picture, not sure why Im having problems with this species, Red palm. this is the second blank that cracked on me. (this one was turned almost down to where it cracked by my friend, he was making himself a pen, but he was not turning even enough for me, so I took over, and it was too late, the edge cracked off)
Im also sure me turning pens at midnight had alot to do with my heavy hands, I was probably past my freshness date for the day, and should have left, but my buddy was so into it. I might be going with him to pick out a lathe soon.
I have quite a few exotic species Im about to start using on slimlines, but thats 3 times I lost them.(this blank was for a wallstreet 2) I just finished trimming the barrels for 6 more slimlines, all acrylics, 4 of them will be pen/pencil sets.
and one question-----I made an oooops. I trimmed up an acrylic blank for a wallstreet, thinking it was a wallstreet click, so ofcourse, once I put it together, I was out of luck, the tube for the regular wallstreet is shorter. Carefully, I managed to pull the pen apart, but I scratched the cap.
is there any source to just purchase a part like a cap for that? I didnt notice it on woodcrafts site.
