Price is per blank.
This pre-tubed 30 caliber PSI Bolt Action/Berea Carbine blank features Aluminum placed on the tube with a resin covering that you can turn. The Aluminum is shiny with a bit of steampunk grim on it. The Ironclad Aluminum Flag is perfect for any of Penn State (PSI's) Bolt Action (3/8') Pen Kits or the Berea Carbine Pen Kit (check what is available at Bear Tooth Woods). The Flag has a primitive look to it.
Some of the embossing is done by hand to help keep that traditional Ironclad look, but these blanks will have a lot more uniformity. Even with more uniformity, the blanks are not exact copies. They look spectacular with the choice of platings available for the Bolt Action and Carbine ballpoint pen kits.
The pen blanks are hand-made by a fellow turner in the US. He recommends sealing the ends with thin CA glue after they have been squared/trimmed.
You can finish these blanks with the following steps or by using your own preferred method:
• 400 grit dry sand to shape the profile
• 600 grit wet sand
• 800 grit wet sand
• 1000 grit wet sand
• Micro pad finishing using all of the pads - wet sand
• Plastic polish
