This week our Grandson in Utah commenced work with a firm that manufactures Printed Circuit Boards. Now I have experienced mixed feelings turning these finding them very brittle at times. I used a worn Easy Tool then no sandpaper,wet and dry brief skim with my scew on the flat then U Beaut Triple EEE briefly for a flawless finish.

Beautiful work and finish Peter!

I can't figure out why I have not used my scraper on CA and acrylic finishes. I do on segments and have for about 10 years now. This has challenged me to take the unnecessary steps out of my CA finishes.

Very nice looking! I would give him a few refills to go along with it as I'll bet he'll use that beauty a lot. Lol

Whoever is making these now must be using a different resin or something because I do many of these that I bought many years ago when they first made the scene and they turned like butter and polished very well.

You did a nice job on this and I am sure you will be making more once that gets around.

Magnificent Pen Peter,
Absolutely Perfect Transition of the Blank, to Hardware,
Outstanding Fit and Immaculate Finish.
Faultless First Class Craftsmanship.
Your Grandson will Treasure this Pen, for its Beauty,
But More Importantly Who Made it for Him, His Grandfather,
You Can Feel the Love, with this Beautiful, Rewarding Pen.
You Must be Rightly Proud Peter, both of Your Grandson, and Your Pen.
Kindest Personal Regards, and Appreciation for your Sharing it with us.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
