Default honeycomb blanks?

Hi Everybody,
I'm looking for some honeycomb blanks.
Wayne Ryan of Texas Blanks on facebook hasn't been active for a couple months and his website is now closed - so I guess he's not doing this anymore?
I haven't gotten any reply to email or FB message in the last week.

Does anybody else make these?
I would need these made with the copper honeycomb mesh, not paper, if that's available.

Thanks for any help.

I'm working with Brooks on this now - we found some aluminum honeycomb core (whatever that is) on ebay with tiny cells and good dimensions for this type of thing.

In case the links above don't work-

maybe these will..

I saw a youtube video with the aluminum honeycomb core cast with alumilite. Didn't work at all. The alumilite just fell out if the holes. Don't know how PR would hold up. Post the results!

Have you looked into stabilized corn cob? One of the pens in your photo sure looked like corncob. It's honeycomb.

The Blank Masters in Richmond, TX makes honeycomb blanks.
https://m.facebook.com/theblankmasters/

Here is an example of one of his blanks on one of my pens.



He is working on a method to make the honeycomb mesh out of an aluminite pour and then another aluminite fill.

Shawn here are some possibilities. If the don't sell small retail amounts perhaps they will send you some samples or trade for some pieces.

https://www.parker.com/literature/Ch...SS%20Vents.pdf Maybe cut out the brass honeycomb. Website is on the bottom.

The honeycomb needs to be cleaned and lightly etched so the resin sticks to it.
