It has been a while since the last swap. I had such a good time with the last one, I thought we could do another. I would be willing to do the pairing, unless someone else would rather do it. This time instead of new paired with a vet. How about casters for casters and wood for wood. All who are interested PLEASE post here. Thanks. I will give the thread a few days to get all we can involved. A week sounds good. So dec. 8 I will post the pairing.

Hello,

How does it work?

I would participate,

wood for wood
&
Cast for cast

Are we exchanging pens or blanks?

Thanks,
Steve

Steve - you exchange a pen for a pen. In your case the way you have it written you would like to swap a wood pen and a cast pen with two other pens/owners.

I wood do wood for wood.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed in this format as I was hoping that possibly recieving a cast pen might actually encourage me to try it. But I'm always open to a pen exchange so put me down for wood for wood. Bob I.

I am very new to this group and to turning but this sounds good to me. So if you all will have me in I would like to do wood for wood. Sorry it will not be fancy.

Count me in. I will make a wood-for-anything.

By the way, most formats I've seen were also experienced-for-inexperienced, based on whether you've made over 100 or not. I think that is a great format. I'm quite a ways over 100.

I'm interested in either category (although I'm much more of a neophyte with casting) depending on the timimng. I think I might be real hard pressed to do much before the end of the year.

I'm in. Wood for wood. I'm new here and to penturning and have not participated in a pen swap before. Are there some sort of guidelines as for the pen kit to be used? I'd feel real bad sending someone a Slimline and receiving an Emperor [:I]

There really are no guidelines to this swap. I would say it is up to you and your partner to figure out what kits you would like to use. However I know what you mean. So next Saturday I will post all the pairs. I guess around noon Dec.8 I will post.
