    Cheap pen blanks

    Cheap pen blanks i’m new to this so I’m uncertain if I’m doing this right but just to let everyone know I was on eBay and found some cheap rhino plastics pen blanks for sale.

    I received some barn wood over the weekend that will make some awesome looking blanks I believe. I have not identified the wood yet but it is estimated to be from 1932.

    How Long Before Cutting?

    I am doing my first block of pen blanks with Alumilite and what is the average time before you guys cut your blanks? The cast works out to cover 4 Slim Lines and 4 Gatsby blanks. I don't want to cut and drill too soon. Thanks in advance for the help.

    My first made pen blanks and final pens.

    Thought I'd give pen blank casting a go, happy with how these turned out. Wasn't sure they were going to come out this well, very deceiving until turned.

    Drilling Pen Blanks with a Router Table

    Hi all. I have just started using metric drill bits in a router table to drill pen blanks. = I would recommend this method for WOOD ONLY pen blanks, as the plastic blanks would probably melt from the fast drill. The whole process takes about 15 seconds at 10,000 rpm, the slowest router setting...
