    This is my mini Mark 5 set up for pen tuning. The caddy I designed works by clamping to the table.

    Sweet setup, MB, but you gotta tell us how you did that -- upload two photos in the same post. Even the "read.me" that came with the software said this couldn't be done. Is it a simple procedure that I should put in the Forum FAQ? Or are you some kind of a genius codeslinger?

    With all good wishes,
    Nick

    Back to pen turning -- Mark, I've been looking for a source of super-quality, thoroughly-upscale, titanium-plated, nuclear-powered pen guts. Recently, I came across some wood scraps with an amazing historical pedigree -- they were part of a Wright Flyer. I'd like to make some pens out of this wood, but I want the pens to be really something since the wood is so incredibly rare. That clever, wonderfully organized mini-Mark station says to me that you're in the game in a big way, so...Any ideas?

    With all good wishes,
    Nick

    PS: In case you're interested, the wood is from the 1913 Wright Model G Aeroboat. It was the last aircraft that Orville and Wilbur worked on together.

    That is a real piece of history.

    I have been pleased with the kits I get from Packard Woodworks but they are probably not that special. I use the titanium kits and they have a rhodium plating platinum kit that is nice.

    Nick,

    You might check out the Berea pen kits here.

    http://www.arizonasilhouette.com/Berea_Hardwoods_Pen_Kit_Images.htm

    They have a large number of quality kits in numerous styles. Not what you would find at Woodcraft.

    I agree; Berea Hardwoods seems like the ticket I was looking for. Here's another link to consider: http://bereahardwoods.com/Merchant5/merchant.mvc?

    Penn State Industries is another good source. I turned a housing for a flash drive from there and I was impressed with their kits. They also have a kit for turning CDs into tops that are neat.
