No real story here, other that I have noticed some LJ’s starting to learn the joys of turning pens. I have also had a few questions on these in the past, so thought I would post a couple. These are great for the car folks and most folks know somebody that is a car nut. There fore there is a potentially huge market for the pens. These are really easy to make, dont take much time, and have a really nice profit margin so for the pen turners out there, I would encourage yall to consider turning some of these. I order these pen kits from Penn State Industries. They have a few different options such as the color of shock springs avaible. There are no click or turn mechanisms in these pens, just a cap that screws on one end or the other. They also have a ring on the cap so folks can attach to a lanyard or key ring if they choose too. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Cool pens—variety is truly the spice of life. Good to see you expanding your horizons.

A new twist to pens. Will it write on a bumpy road?
