Wow Mark so you too got into the blank selling business. Always wondered is there going to be enough pen makers left to buy all these blanks everyone is making

These are a fund-raiser for the MPG Committee. I will reimburse for my materials. So basically I am donating my time, and had fun doing it. The 12, 9 and 6 slotted blanks are nice for complete upper or lower sections, or as trim rings.

All very nice work Mark. I am sure anyone who gets one will treasure it. Good luck. Look forward to your next design.

Ooh, I didn't know you were making Tru-stone ones too. How many of those do you think you'll have? I like those and the ones with the Herringbone type insert like you did at the demo. I'll have to grab a couple!

OK, how did you cut the segments? Those are awfully small. BTW, nice blanks.

G'Day Lewis.

I suspect I will have 5 of the tru-stone blanks, as that is what I have left from my "old stock" Tru-stone blanks (2012-1014). However, I have a few more uncut Trustone blanks, so we can chat if you want a different combination.

And... I can show you how to make these yourself. No knowledge lost!!!

Cheers, Mark
