    On the left, a Helix Rollerball pen, in Manitoba Maple.
    On the right is a Triton Rollerball in Manitoba Maple as well. You may recall this pic from a previous post. Better pic here!

    Hope you like!

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

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Mack I really like the look of the mixed material. What is the silver band?
    Either you like bacon or you are wrong.

    It's 1/8" flat aluminum that I purchase in 1" wide strips. Cut to length on the TS and drill on the lathe prior to gluing up.

    I like the aluminum accents. I have not tried that yet on pens. I've turned a number of tool handles and use either brass compression fittings or copper couplers for ferrules. Both turn really nicely. The brass fittings look so much better than the commercially available formed brass ferrules available for tool handles.

    I like them both, Mack. I agree with Terry on the mixed materials.
