Default How many pen kits do you keep on hand?

Just a straight forward question. I have about 25 pen kits on hand at any given time. How many do you have laying around?

Yep, they pile up. Probably 150-200 or so pen kits, and 100+ project kits.

So is pen turning beyond the hobby level and more full time or at least part time job for you? Just thinking that is a lot of $ invested in kits.

Part time hobby, I sell at a few shows during the summer. Itís just that deals present themselves now and again. Like you need you realize your sales stock is needing a dozen slim lines, but you find a great deal on 100 slim line kits.... or a guy on this forum posts all his remaining stock at half off and I canít resist those 50 kits.. over time, it adds up.

40 or 50.
Which would last me a couple of years at the rate I usually turn. But I seem to buy more every year.

Around 400 pen kits and about 100 projects (mostly perfume pen and other vanity project).

Don't even want to think about the amount of pen blanks ;)
