    Default Ringing in the new year.

    At our recent local IAP meeting, I did a demo on doing a custom finial & centerband for a Jr Gent I with a closed end barrel all from one 5 1/4" blank.

    Here's the ring.



    These are a bit smaller than they look. Here's the same ring on a penny.


    And this ring was an oops ring because it's actually too big. That's the problem with doing demos on someone else's lathe. I didn't have the tailstock set right when I drilled, and the hole was too large. So I didn't get the entire pen from 1 blank. I had to use a scape for the centerband when I got home. I did get luck though, because in the following picture, it looks like it lines up with the rest of the blank. But it was just luck, not any planning on my part.

    Here's the pen.

    I thought you had put this post in the wrong section when I saw the first photo - I thought it was a bangle. Then I read your commentary. Great work.
    How do you get the ring on to the centre band?

    Thanks for that! I think I have a ways to go to catch up with Ian, but it's nice to have my blanks compared to his blanks.

    The kit is from Timberbits, and the ring is removable in that kit. There is a way to remove them from other kits, but I haven't tried it yet.

    Here's a picture of the centerband assembly from a Jr Gent I from Timberbits.

    Now it makes sense. I have not used the Jr Gent kits, only the Sn. I must check them to see if they do the same.
    Good to see David is getting some international exposure. If his service is as good as in Australia, you're on a winner.
