Hi Glenn.

I'm hoping somebody will find your MPG demo handout. On a purely selfish viewpoint - I want the handout simply to learn from/tweak your technique to modify my own turnings.

Oh... The Stopper is excellent! You were very gracious to not promote that the profile is... different/and unique to you! WELL DONE!

Cheers, Mark

Mark, I sent an email offering to “spruce up” the pen I made in the collection. It looks like the clip was turned causing clip ring syndrome on it. If it works, you can send it to me or I can get it at the next MPG, assuming I get there.

I'll check later today, as the IAP Collection is hitting the road in about 5 hrs to go to Chicago for a display at their Chapter mtg tomorrow.

Will your club do a handout on how to do this? That would be a great service to the turning community... IMHO.

I had a handout at the MPG, lost the file after a computer crash. I’ll make a new one and share it.
