I've learned that group buy works best on the top of the line (expensive) kits. Doing a double handling thing usually negates the discount on cheaper kits....that is why I am trying to stick with the high end IF possible.

Also...handling too many kits in a Group buy complicates things. I remember Johnny's and I cringe of the though how he did that. Hope you understand guys.

If we get to the 25% discount, I would be interested in 2 22k RBs, and 1 22k FP + a set of bushings. If you include the Jr. Gents,version 1, I'd also be interested in some of those.

I'd be in for a batch (5 each of the Gold TI, Platinum and black TI in the tapered end) of Jr. Gents II (15 total) if this will close and ship in time for Christmas orders. I've got tubes so I can turn the pens, but I need the hardware to assemble by the 3rd week of December.

This link is to the directions for the Emperor. The drill sizes are 37/64, and 15/32. http://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/pdf/emperor_pen.pdf

dario, Hint to the wise. Only do one type of pen. Dont do several different types.

I would be interested in the emperor kits but wouldnt be able to buy alot. Too expensive.

I mentioned the Jr. gent and jr. Statesman because of the fact that the version 1s are still available and they are doing it at 30%. If we ordered another big lot they would prolly really give a good discount to get rid of them. Most likely 35% or maybe even more.

I would not include any other kits in this bulk buy. Just gets too complicated.
