Hello Everyone.I'm not sure the pics went through but I hope so.
These are all the same pen. It is another creation by Gary.I was talking to Gary and told him that I had just started casting so I could learn how to make these blanks.He offered to help me with this.This pen is made from parts of my Dads and my Moms watches.My Dad and mom has been gone a long time so this pen really means alot to me.
I have done a few on my own since this one was done.But I really have to thank Gary once again!

very nice I bet you had a little butt pucker going on worrying about blow out or turning to close to the face.
Great Idea

Looks like your getting it.
Looks like it could use just a little more turning.
A little tip mount the tube on your bushings before you cast then you know the high spots.

Keep up the good work they are challenging
