Sounds good Rick.
A Sierra style would be a good pen for the swap. Fairly easy to do and shows a fair amount of material.
Your blank swap plan works.

Date getting closer.

Shop being cleaned.

New batch of alumilite being delivered today. New molds from ptownsubbie enroute.

Bought some foil tape.

New pressure pot being assembled. New vac chamber ready for testing.

Wonder what we can do with these things?

Oh oh, somebody is moving to the Dark side. Once you go there (casting) there is no turning back.

Let me know where you need help. I have available and can bring 4 different types of pressure pots; we can study each and go over the pros and cons of each one. Let me know.

That sounds like the subject of an excellent demo. Especially done by a "Casting Master".

Okay folks, the day just got very interesting. Start signing up soon so I can begin planning for food and drinks.

Not very interested in casting pen blanks other than clear for certain uses. Too many folks like yourself that can do this much more efficiently for me. Several folks casting that have different techniques and color patterns.

I do have a new product line I'll be experimenting with that will use alumilite to add color.

Still planning to make the journey up from San Antonio.
I can find I-35 (live about a mile from it), I can find Belton, now all I have to do is find your workshop.
You published directions a couple of years ago, but I haven't been able to find them.
Looking forward to joining in this time, hopefully with a couple of passengers in tow.
Thanks
Gordon
