Hope you never get an itchy ear while you are finishing a pen.

Your results look good.

Paper towels will certainly work but they will stick if you go too slow. The clear tape will not stick, at all. It's cheap and I can keep tape on my finger through several pens.

What speed a you turning while applying CA. I turn at about 500 and yours looks to be going much faster than that.

Video was done very professionally. Nice job. Great looking finish too.

I was misunderstood. In the video, ca was applied to the top of the pen. The ca was smoothed over the blank with his finger covered in scotch tape under the blank. I know of others who use the small bags that pen parts come in. I was just wondering if you could apply the ca to your covered finger rather than to the top of the blank.

Lol. Looking back, itís pretty clear what you were asking. Yet everyone got distracted and chased the wrong trail.

Looking back at my first post, I see where people would come to that conclusion. It is a good lesson. I will be more careful in the future.

A friend told me he runs his lathe at about 1800 rpm all the time. He has been turning pens for many years and selling them. I now have my lathe set at the next to the fastest speed and leave it there. You need the right sanding materials to run at that speed but now Iím used to it and it works just fine for me.
