contest

Hi, my lathe will be delivered today or tomorrow.

Having never turned a piece of anything before, I doubt that my entry would be worthy.
Give me about a month, and I'll be ready for you next time....maybe not good enough to take first place, but at least a respectful entry.

I think it's great that you take the time to run this contest.
Looking forward to seeing all the pens that have been entered.

:yes: I'm in. Going to order the kits tonight when I get home, maybe some special blanks?? I have to dig through and see what I have. Of all the kits I have I did not have a single pencil kit. Trying to decide what to do with a slimline that will stand out.

Hope several will be involved should be fun!

Thanks for putting this together and giving away stuff!!!

By matching pencil, does that mean matching kit or duplicated design?
One slimline pen. Your choice of material and one mechanical pencil again your choice material. A matching set means they both have to have a similar profile and material..

I'll see how I go. Not sure of I have kits at home or not plus no workshop to speak of but then that has not stopped me before. Have to check the time line. Any chance you are extending it.

Regards

Dave

That will me a shame. Maybe you could postpone it. Start it now but out an 8 wk time line on it. As some start to do some other may come on board.

Yes, it would be a shame. There was a LOT of interest when this was first announced. Your rules are simple enough. :blink:

I am not sure what happened to all the folks who said they were interested. :sad:

You have a terrific set of prizes. Capt Eddie had a lot of interest for his competition and no where close to the prize set you offered.

I am not into turning pens, but I was eager to see the future pictures.

I agree. And as of today only one person entered that i know of. So im not sure. I may hold of for a bit until my YouTube channel gets a a few subscribers and maybe do the contest then. Not sure. Kinda upset, if people thought it wasn't enough time than they should say so like Dave did.. Oh well i tried, i can't force people to enter..

Sorry I've been a bit a bit absent from the forum for the last month or so.

I may be going to a couple of pen events down under in oct and nov. if you held off till mid December for the draw I think I could get a few more members for the forum and a few more participants.

Another idea would be to pm a few individuals who simply may not have seen this thread.

I only got back on board because some mentioned it toe a few days ago and it took me till last night to sign on and find the thread.

You got a great little thing set up here. I really hope the members get behind you and make it work.

Hmm. I think putting the contest on hold for now is a good idea. Bring it back in a couple months. I got twins on the way so ill be busy too ;)
