Spring Fever! New Blanks Arrived!!

Polymer Clay Blank

Polymer Clay Blank

This will be the first weekend, after 11 straight weekends of teaching at The Wood Working Shows, that I have to myself.  SO what am I going to do?  Get into my shop, of course! (Sorry, my “studio“) I’m going to make something for my family for Easter.  My daughter loves mermaids and we just received a new load of polymer clay blanks so I will be making her one for Easter!

We received a shipment of Pheasant Feather pen blanks, but due to the popularity of these blanks, we can not list them on the website – they sell out too fast! My grandson, the hunter, saw the new Pheasant Feather blanks and he wanted me to make him a lever action pen with Amherst feathers – I am such an easy touch (especially when it comes to the grandkids).  My wife saw the blanks and wanted a Venetian pen, so once again I went back into the “studio” to make her a pen!

These feather blanks are not on the website so if you are interested in any of them please call us at 1-888-717-4202 and we will be glad to assist you.

Amherst Feathers

Amherst Feathers for my grandson.




Venetian-Amherst – for my wife.

Have a nice Holiday, I will be taking my time and making some more pens!

CBN - Cubic Boron Nitride - Grinding Wheel

CBN – Cubic Boron Nitride – Grinding Wheel

CBN (cubic boron nitride) Grinding / Sharpening Wheels are the State-of-the-Art for sharpening high-speed steel tools. These wheels are manufactured from a solid piece of 6061 aircraft grade aluminum that are then electroplated and nickel coated creating a more aggressive bond to secure the abrasive to the wheel.
We believe in our wheels so much, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY with each wheel!
CBN wheels will make aluminum oxide (AO) grinding wheels obsolete! CBN wheels stay cooler, cut faster and do not require dressing or shaping like normal aluminum oxide wheels. In industrial grinding applications where heat is generated, CBN is preferred over diamond wheels.
These are the last sharpening wheels you will ever need!
Available in 2 versions – Click either link below for more info:
80 Grit – great for shaping your tools
180 Grit – great for finishing!

New Antique Nickel Lever Action Pen Kits now 10% off!

Antique Nickel Lever Action Pen

Antique Nickel Lever Action Pen

Earlier this week we started taking pre-orders for the new Antique Nickel Lever Action Pen Kits. It just happened to be right before our store-wide 10% off Anniversary sale. Since they were a brand new product, I decided that they *probably* should stay at their regular price, so I excluded them from the sale.

Boy, was I wrong, and Lenora let me know about it!
She said that of course they should be on sale with the other products! So just to be fair, all the people who pre-ordered the pens also got the 10% discount.

Hopefully, this will now get me out of the doghouse.

So, now it’s an even better time to get the new Nickel finish version of the hottest selling pen style. The Antique Brass version has already proven to be an incredibly popular seller at pen shows & fine craft shows. The Nickel finish will give your customers a hard decision about which one to choose.

The 3rd Anniversary Sale will end on Sept. 8, 2015 so it’s a good excuse to stock up for the show season, and the upcoming holidays – they’re closer than you think! (If you don’t believe me, just look at all the Halloween stuff in the stores)

You will want to get these NOW, because our next shipment is not coming in until November, and it may be too late by

New Universal Barrel Trimming Sleeve Set Has Arrived! Special Introductory Offers!

Universal Set of Barrel Trimming Sleeves

Universal Set of Barrel Trimming Sleeves

It has been a long time in the making, but it is finally here!

Read to the bottom for our Limited Time, Introductory Offer.

A universal set of barrel trimming sleeves that will work with either a standard 7mm barrel trimmer, or a squaring jig.  This set of nine (9) individual sleeves will work on 99.9% of all pen kits currently on the market.

Using these sleeves will make it easier to square up your pen blanks rather than trying to make your own sleeves for all the different pen kits on the market today.

Every time I did a demo at shows, people would come up to me and ask why no one made a complete set of trimming sleeves. After hearing this all the time, I thought “Why don’t I make them?”. Since this was a pretty big project to tackle, I partnered with my friends at Penn State Industries to develop the set, manufacture it, and bring it to market.

The Universal Barrel Trimming Sleeve set is also available in 2 combination sets:

Universal Barrel Trimming Sleeves and 7MM Trimmer Combo Set BG223
Barrel Trimming Sleeve Set
& 7mm Trimmer Combination Set
Barrel Trimming Sleeve Set &
Squaring Jig Combination Set

Mini Stylus Solution!

Mini Balloon Stylus

Mini Balloon Stylus

What do you do with all the cut off scraps of acrylics and woods from making pens and other items?

One great solution came from Ed Hochard at the AAW he makes little balloon mini styluses (styli).  My wife, Lenora thought these were a great idea, and she asked me to make a few.  I took them to the show this past weekend, and they sold right away.  So if you are looking for a quick & easy, fun project, this is certainly one of them. Best of all, you get to use up all those scrap pieces!
