Ozturner:
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your comments.
We cherish and need the feedback as we feed the beast that is turning pens.

You are right.
She even went to rockler to get more supplies without me yesterday.
I was quite jealous, but VERY supportive of her decision.


Please see second slim line attempt below.
The transitions to the center band, nib, cap are not as smooth as I would have liked, but it is a learning process. Also, the blank had a bubble in it that is prominently featured near the clip point. I only found this when sanding and polishing.
Filled it with CA glue, cured, added 3 coats of CA as a finish and then sanded/polished.
It's ok, but I was NOT happy the blank I bought had hidden bubbles inside.
oh well, here's to learning some more.

PS: Christy has one chucked up and ready to sand/finish. So maybe another to share in a day or two. It's our first attempt at a fountain pen. She is doing an AWESOME job. So glad I married this one.
