Default Cebloplast

I bought a slab of vintage cebloplast from SteveG a while back and finally make a couple of pens from it. It polishes up very nicely. One was my entry in the Pretty Resin contest.

Very nice! I love the final appearance of cebloplast but it’s not always fun to work with. Found it to be easy to melt it it gets hot while turning. Definitely worth the troubles.

Definitely have to drill very slowly, even with that I had to clear the bit often.

This post makes me wish I had more of that material. Nice work! When I was in the process of moving from Kauai to Eugene OR, I was burglarized, and lost a large amount of vintage and special pen materials. I had most of my shop stuff in boxes ready to load for shipping. The next day much of it had disappeared. The sad thing is that the thief probably had no idea of the value. He may have tossed it after making off with my stuff, and later evaluating the proceeds of his nasty deed.
Hard to replace!

I would spray some Pam on the drill bit, and into the hole being drilled. That was after having a blank of Ceblo literally melt onto the drill bit. I had to break the locked-on blank off the bit. Obviously not a good pen making day.
