Term,

I'd love to see your scans. We dont have any for sale production pieces yet.

You may want to take a stroll over to http://www.americanartplastics.com/hard_rubber_pricing.shtml and see what Hard Rubber colors strike your fancy. I am using their rod stock for my pens. If they have it in stock I can make it.





Cryptic PS:
I was at my machinists shop last night and interesting things happened.

Indeed it is.

I talked with Mark Hoover yesterday & discussed several possible applications. All sound like very good ideas that can and will work.

Kurt. NP on the Goldenwood. He's only got it in thinner strips, but being celluloid I can fuse several together with no problem at all.

BTW, This is Nib Nib

Here's a sneak peek at one of the prototypes I had worked up. It's black & yellow HR in a minimalist design & has 2 nib options. Steel or amber glass.











Stay tuned......

Hey, Dennis. The design looks uncomfortable to hold - there doesn't seem (from the pics) to be enough room on the section or first step to hold the pen comfortably, and the main barrel is far enough from the nib that I'm not sure about that option as well. If you look at Joe Cali's pens (to which I would compare this in terms of size and looks), he's got a relatively long unstepped section before he starts stepping to a wide barrel.

Just an observation, since this is a prototype and obviously I haven't had a chance to hold one. But since I like to write with my pens I would have serious reservations about buying based on these pics.

Love the glass nib option, btw. smile.gif

Best regards,
Adam

I'm more curious about where your stock of Sheaffer nibs is coming from. Or is that just for the prototype as well?

I've decided to use the nib & feed from the school pens. The source? I've been hoarding them for a while now & have a ready supply on hand.

PS Thanks so very much for the prints. I really like them. I've got them framed & hanging above my desk.

No problem at all Kurt & thanks again for the logo work. I'll be placing a materials order this week & will be sure to get a rod of that for you.

Update time.

It's been a while since I've posted anything in this thread. The company & pens are progressing again. I was set back several months when I let my machinist go again so now the pens are 100% made by me now. I've got the equipment I need & supplies. I've turned a few prototypes out of delryn & am pleased with the results. It's time for me to place a materials order & start turning out pens. I've cut this project so close to the bone that I don't have a proper workshop set up. LOL, much to my wifes displeasure I have a lathe, drill press, mill & assorted tools set up in the living room!

Kurt, remind me what color HR did you want for your logo prize pen?

Stay tuned
