    first turning since broken arm incident

    I did this cigar as my first attempt after the arm healed. Real butcher job. I turned the bottom egg shaped and undersized. I ended up sanding it down and building it back up with super glue. The other pens are made from .308 shells dressed on a streamlined slim. They are on their way to my son on the Nimitz. He is selling them as fast as I can send them.

    Nice to see you getting back in the saddle, Dale. Your "butchered" pen looks better than a lot of mine. I like the cartridge pens, too.
