I was asked a while back if I could make pens with Steelers and cowboys logos…. took me a while to find someone that had blanks (I’ve yet to try casting my own) but I finally found some here that are made of alumilite. I’d never turned alumilte before but it was great to work with! As you see in the second picture it can be fragile… my own fault I got overly confident after three pens when perfect and tried going to fast making deeper cuts.

Highly recommend these pen blanks and encourage you to check out the Etsy shop in the link if your interested in different blanks! Amazing response time, great service and quick shipping.

Those are outstanding looking pens, thanks for sharing them & link. JMHO, for what its worth easier to buy those blanks then make them!

I’m sure there is some sawdust in them somewhere lol

Agreed casting blanks sounds interesting but haven’t decided to tackle it yet!!
