Nice. Thanks, Harry. A good site for penmaking is www.penturners.org. Some fantastic pens in the gallery.

Nice looking pen, Harry!

My friend who bought the first Longworth chuck from us is a pen turner. He has turned over 3,500 pens and still going strong. He also bought a 3D printer and makes and sells molds of his design so people can turn acrylic pens with dozens of different designs in them. Pretty cool, actually.

Hi Harry, didn't our friend Glenmore, at one time do 200 pens that he donated to the US troops overseas?

My memory might be a bit hazy on that one....

He sure did James. I really miss the long Skype calls we used to have and the introductions to other members , most of whom we still swap emails.
