First attempt at turning a pen


Recommended Posts

Are you using the laser engraver with rotary table attachment?  Which pen model are you doing.   I've always figured batching out something like a sierra with a single tube would be much easier than a Euro with multiple tubes, different sized bushings, and a tenon.

I applied for years to try to be a conductor with csx or norfolk southern whenever they had jobs around here, of course never heard anything when I actually needed or wanted the job.  Finally got an email being invited to their hiring session like 2 years ago, they gave like a 2 day notice for it and was busy at work so couldn't go.  Always thought that would be a cool job.

Consider yourself blessed. I work 70 hours a week. I only have assigned rest days because after 20 years, I have enough seniority to hold a job that only works 5 days a week. I spent 18 years working on call, 24/7/365. Missed to many birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas's etc.

I'm using this laser and the funline designer twist pen. I presented the customer with the option of a single tube, he prefered the twist in the middle option. The kit I use only uses one small tennon, on a single bushing.
