    Default Pen Swap Blank / Exec Clicker

    Hi All,
    I received quite a few blanks from the Australia Day pen swap, I have finally managed to get around to turning one,
    The blank is from Tony aka Aus Maddog, it is one of his own casts, it was great to turn and I think it came up fairly good myself,I can wait to turn up some more of these
    The kit is a chrome Executive Clicker from Timberbits


    Prior to turning

    Cheers Ben





    PS. I will be working on the photography when I get back, I'm off to Thailand tomorrow

    This is the First acrylic / resin blank I have done where I had no idea what was in it or what it was going to look like, it was awesome to find hidden goodies, I normaly don't really stop my lathe more than once while I turn a pen, but this one had me doing one or two passes with the gouge than I would stop to see what was being uncovered, kinda like pass the parcel!!

    needless to say I can't wait until I can turn some more, I might even have to give this casting thing a go, can you recommend anyone to show me how Neil

    Cheers Ben
