I'm not local but shipping isn't too costly. Take a look at my work: Ted's Workshop - Welcome

BTW - What kits?

Thanks all for the help! The kits I have are majestic (2 rollerball and 1 fountain) I have the bushing, drill bits, and barrel trimming sleeves.

I like your signature Ted (I'm originally from Ohio)

:)

Can you guys give me a ballpark figure on cost?

I deleted this thread when I shouldn't have, my error and I apologize for doing that.

The cabinets in your shop are better than the ones in my kitchen.... Nice Shop!

Gang - Thanks for the "kind" comments about my shop. The pics were taken by my son's significant other. She does good photography, doesn't she? The caveat was to "clean it up a bit" before they go there (they were coming from California). There's been a bit of change in the shop since then (new lathe and other tooling, plus additionsl cabinetry for example).

And Scott - you quoted my wife! She has said that for a couple years now. Might not be making too many pens the next several months. We're heading into a major kitchen renovation. Guess who is making the cabinetry?
