Need some materials advice
Permalink Closed


I've come across a site with some pretty cool material colors & patterns for my upcoming pen lines. My question is, does anyone have any experience with turning this stuff? If so, what are the pitfalls to watch out for when using it?

Everyone else, what colors patterns catch your eye?(page and product number so I can find it)

Looks like a pretty interesting site!

They have one pen "Kit" (Knight pen), and a lot of usable materials.
Some pen companies do use ABS plastic these days!

A lot of bicycle stuff too for those interested in "customizing" bikes!
(Something that I admire, but I do not do/collect. I do know a guy though that builds his own mountain/racing bikes) There's some car stuff there as well!

It's acrylic, and apparently intended for pen turning; there *shouldn't* be any issues beyond the norms for acrylic. That Web site is an abomination, though.

It's good stuff. I use a lot of it.

However, have you asked about minimums yet?
