I just replenished my supply of cloth-backed sandpaper strip cut-offs, used mostly for my lathe turning. I frequently order from Klingspoor’s Woodworking Shop in North Carolina because IMO, they have good bulk prices, name-brand tools and hundreds of woodworking accessories, in all categories.

During my latest website visit, I noted that they have an unbelievable supply of pen turning blank varieties, pencil leads, refills, kits for pen turnings, and other unique items for a desired custom-turned handle.

Here's one of my favorites: (website page 11)

I’ve noticed on the forum that pen turning seems to becoming a popular topic with many members, and chose to share my website observation. Personally, I'm not familiar with what a good price is for pen turning items, but maybe it can be an added resource to your present supplier lists.

Been tempted to cut some of the big vines out in my woods and offer blanks in poison ivy and Virginia Creeper. I do have an inch thick piece of blue berry bush trunk.
