Go for it! I've been inspired by enough folks in here over the years.

It's the first time I incorporated the design with the dot into a 2-part pen. Normally I do them on Sierra or Aeros like this one.

A Couple of My Latest

Omega RBs in gunmetal. I'm liking this kit. I think it's the nicest RB/FP kit in the price range.

You Know Life is Good When....

You finally get your pressure pot to hold pressure - no leaks! Elusive little devil. Turns out there was a poor weld on the inside ridge that contains the gasket. It was keeping the gasket from...

Interesting stuff. I guess I was only going off of what all the "Corvette Gear" vendors sell with emblems on. I'm still going to make myself a 'Vette pen one of these days.

Thanks,

Nicely done! I've had it on my radar to make one for myself ('91). Not nearly as cool as a '75, but still officially a classic now.

Using Silicone Mold in a Pressure Pot?

Was wondering if anyone has tried making a "frame" that a silicone mold could fit in so you can use it under pressure? And if so did/could it work? It'd be a great way to pressure cast more blanks...

Nice looking, but nothing that many of the members here don't make regularly. It's all in your audience. If you can find the right market you can charge a lot more for the same product.
