If i remember correctly chopped ice is an acrylic. This was softer than acrylic. It had a lower melting temperature. I had trouble drilling the fist blank but drilled this one successfully. It came already round to. These are the two small pieces i have left.Chopped ice or something like that. Maybe Ed (Exotic Blanks)will have an answer.
It definitely looks like the the right stuff. I got it about 5 to 7 years ago at my local Woodcraft. I will have to see if my wife will let me pick up some of those rods.It is some of that old time material like celoplast or old casein material.
Yeah it did melt about that easy. I wouldn't want to leave the pen in a car window.I remember that material. It was hard to drill, melted if you had the wrong wattage bulb over the drill press. It sure did finish up pretty. Yours sure did, that's a beautiful pen! I think I've still got a piece in black and white somewhere.
