Description

A pen blank that has been cast with a Red and Yellow pigment to represent the flames in a fire, once you start turning into the blank and this go with all the pen blanks is the colour won't change but the effect will.

My pen blanks, shaving blanks, and box blanks, are all individually hand cast making every one of them unique in their own effect, although the colour will be the same it's just the effect within the blanks that change from cast to cast, when you receive your blanks you might think that the pattern effect is little boring...but I can a sure you that once you start turning these the whole effect comes to life.

About my hand cast resin blanks.

My blanks are all individually hand cast making every one of them unique in their own effect although the colour will be the same it's just the effect within the blanks that change from cast to cast.

What do these blanks turn like?

You will find that all my resin blanks whether it be the 20mm the 25mm or the larger blanks like the 40mm and the box blanks all of which will turn and nicely and will take an amazing finish either on the lathe or on the buffing wheel...which is what I recommend for the ultimate finish... don’t worry if you don't have a set of buffing wheels the lathe will be fine.

Do you have any other tips?

Yes I do! I have turned hundreds might even be into the thousands now, I strongly recommend that turning on a high speed is the only way above 2.500 RPM is good, I turn most of my resin blanks at 4.500 RPM with sharp tools with a very good result.

Here are some pointers.

  • Sharp tools.
  • Fast speed when turning.
  • Low speed when sanding.
  • Sand with clean water...soapy water is good.
  • Cloth back J-Flex - 240 grit through to 600 then Micro pads 1500 - 12000 grit.
  • Stop the lathe between each and every grade and cross sand by hand.
  • Burnishing Cream (Chestnut Products) is a great final result
  • Buffing wheels for the ultimate finish
  • Drilling is best done with Colt drill bits.

Enjoy! If in doubt please drop me a line.
