Great job Dennis as always. Up to you high standards

The only down side is you could have given it a wipe down before putting it in the box there are finger prints on the fittingswinkwinkwinksmileysmileysmileysmile p

Joking aside Dennis one thing I have found is when the pen is finished give it a coat of Microcrystaline wax it helps stop fingerprints. I have been using it for some time and considering the amount of pens I sell at rallies it does really work.

Meant to ask where did you get the kit and acrylic blank from

Beautiful pen Dennis, a credit to the quality of your work. I also would like to know where you obtained the kit and blank from. Great work, well done.

Hi Dennis -- That's really nicely done. I know people I meet say that there isn't a lot to turning a pen but there are Pens and there are Pens and it's not an easy job to get it just right and for it to stand out from the rest. Putting it in the correct box helps a lot too. Well done dennis.

Great looking pen! The blue color is stunning and attractive which goes really well with the kit. I'm sure the new owner will like it. Great job Dennis!
