    Sunday's projects

    Here are three that I turned today. The slimlines are going to Pens for Troops thanks to blanks provided by Smitty37... Good practice and I like how they turned out, lots of character. The El Grande is a blank and kit supplied to me by a friend at work and done for him. This is my first El...

    Another El Grande rollerball pen from PR casting

    Here's another El Grande rollerball made from one of my cast blanks from last weekend. This was the one that the first color setup before I could add the bronze.:rolleyes: You can see in a few places where I tried to stab the stick into the green to allow the bronze to penetrate a little.:wink...

    El Grande questions?

    I just picked up a few of the Berea El Grande kits and find the instructions and methods used much different from any other pen I have done to date. The cap end has two tubes a smaller one that fits in the 11mm hole and a large (short) one that fits in the top end. On the upper cap blank...

    Kitless Pen Thread Pitch

    I'm going to start my first kitless or semi-kitless pen this weekend, and was wondering what thread pitch a few items were. I saw on another thread that the El Grande nib is 10x1. If anyone can confirm this, that would be great. The other thing I'd like some confirmation on is the fountain...

    Closed end Thuya Burl El Grande

    This is a slightly modified El Grande and Cambridge in Thuya burl. The wood is finished using HUT PPP brown and then white wax and topped with a little carnuba wax -- probably overkill on the wax. I would normally do a CA finish but this wood is so waxy that it doesn't take it very well...
