They are not.

Russ had a website, and developed a process for the "Russ-Line" slimline modification.

I don't remember Eagle's name, but I was a member only a short time when he passed away.
I believe it was William Presavage ??? But here is a link to one of the most viewed pens in the SOYP forum.

Note: "Eagle" had 2 (I believe) IAP posting names, due to... issues

This is a great History Class for pen turning! And this is only part of the story. I know there were lots of personal trials and errors and differences of opinions well before this forum was started.

[quote=magpens;1950780

It would be nice to have a record of all the pens and pen-makers that have been represented on the front page.

Does anyone know if such a record exists and, if so, whether it is accessible ?[/QUOTE]


The fine print under the front page photo point to the galleries. 2007 on

I haven't seen Fangar mentioned. I believe he was one of the first to turn aluminum and powder coat it. He also had a unique style of bottle stoppers if I remember correctly.

Eagle and Russ are 2 different people. I never knew Russ.
Eagle's real name is William Edward Prisavage.
I'm pretty sure his screen name was ctEaglesc.
Here's a link to one of his handmade blanks:

one of a kind

Eagle was someone you got along with or you didn't--I'm not sure there was a middle ground
He was both a wild man and a loyal friend.
He loved to talk and argue and share his thoughts.
A man named Alvin got me interested in turning but it was Eagle's pens which got me interested in pen making when I saw them in Orlando at KnotHaid's BBQ.

There are many great people and pen makers here (past and present) but I personally believe Eagle to be the most innovative blank maker this craft had ever witnessed.
All of Eagle's "CNC" work was done by hand.

I can think of one other missing member: Bernie "Brokenbit " Tanner.
I haven't spoken with Bernie in some time.
I know his health was giving him a bad time and I don't know if he's still with us.

My memory may be wrong, but I also seem to recall that while he did not "invent" the CA finish, Fangar did much to advance it.
