Day 263: Getting a handle on things
Pictured are 2 of the 4 new burning pens I built over the course of the day. They are clamped together so they remain upright while the 2 part epoxy sets. The handles are Desert Ironwood and the rest of the components are from various sources, including Radio Shack, Home Depot, and my wife's medicine cabinet (Q-tips, not seen).
I got tired of changing tips on my current pens so I made some more. Now I can change pens rather than tips. I also use 6' cords for each pen rather than the 6' cord I cut in half for my first 2.
