  1. When making bullet shell pens from the Zebra F-301 pens I sand off the nickel plating from the clicker and the nib. The other day I came across a DIY video on nickel plating brass and the old light bulb came on. It is an amazingly easy process and here are the results. Here is a picture with a brass pen for contrast. Here is the video I followed the instructions from and it worked as described. I think this is just too cool for school.
  2. Went to Sam's Club and bought 54 more Zebra Pens. They are usually 9 pens for $9.99 but they were on sale for $7.98 WOO-HOO! Doug, AKA Dab, sent me some shells. I love this forum as everyone is so helpful. While I waited for them to arrive I worked the pen parts of 30 pens. Got the shells drilled and polished and put 30 more pens together. Guess what the family and friends are getting for Christmas this year. I will be way ahead of the game. I did 16 and then found two more shells and now these I made with Doug's shells will make four dozen. I have a line on more shells here locally so I'm sure a lot more will be made. It does get a bit tedious.
  3. Saturday I was in the basement and came across some .30-06 shell casings a friend of mine had given me. I had tried to make some pens with them once before and was successful but not real happy with them. I took a Zebra click pen and found a way to fit the shells to it. I liked the way it turned out and made 15 more Sunday. The Zebra pen parts are chromed brass so I found a way to mount them on the lathe and sand the chrome off. I sanded the shells and the pieces to 400 grit and hit them with some 0000 steel wool. They are shiny now but will eventually get the patina brass gets to. I have found most people like the patina over the shine. Since the pen parts ended up with a shine I did the shells too. I only have the cost of the Zebra pen in each one which is about $1.20 each. Have a look. Zebra pen I started with.

    More Pens

    I haven't been doing much in the shop since it has been so nice outside. I did make another batch of pens using the Zebra Pens as a host and reworking them to receive a wooden cover. I did 36 of them and plan on taking them to the family reunion and give them to my cousins. Last year I gave them the desk pens I make and made sure everyone got one even those who were not there. This year only the cousins that are there will get them. Sadly the reunion is the same day as the TPW gathering.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
