Gary, Smashing good show! So on the nice driptip that you made there is no SS? You made an o-ring groove and then good to go? I do not see why not... just very interested in this as I have been making some on me lathe too. So far I have made copper, brass and aluminum from solid rods. I want to play with the materials and options. Your 1st one turned out great! Did he just use an o-ring to mate the SS insert to the acrylic? My 1st one took hours but now they are going much faster. Such a fun play! Gotta get some pen blanks. Back to me garden shed to play some more!

Thanks Mate!
Cheers,
fsors

Well impressed with the video and the show Gary and I'm sure with a little practice you'll be banging the drip tips out.

Like the tru-stone blanks on ebay

I caved in and ordered a Lapis drip tip from Pink Mule Smile
