    Cancer awareness Tempest

    Following on from the slimline “awareness pen” I finished a Tempest using the Sapphire Radiance blank.
    I was hoping to do a “johnny5” and attach a pin on the clip.
    Unfortunately Ive not been able to find a suitable pin.
    Anyone offer any suggestions?

    Thanks Angelo
    Had a look at your link.
    The problem is they are mostly to replace a slimline type clip.
    I wanted to use a click pen and their clips are one piece.
    I really needed a coat type pin that I could grind and attach to the existing clip.
    I have bought the pen kits that have the diamond cancer clip but these are twist style.
    Many thanks for your links.

    Very nice looking pen, just a thought have you tried the cancer charity shops as they often sell the lapel pins on the counter

    Hadn't thought of that. Will give it a try.

    Hi all
    I was at one time asked to make pens for a local hospice to sell at their fund raising events (they wanted 100 pens of various types) I said that I would be prepared to let them have pens on a sale or return basis and at two thirds cost price. The reply was no we expect you to donate the whole amount needless to say this was not acceptable to me to my mind just donate the cost price in cash and save myself the work.
    I do donate pens to charity usually in batches of ten.
    As an aside the pen in your picture is a stunner well done
    Regards
    Michael

    Thanks Michael.
    My intent is to do 10 or so.
    Tell them the actual cost to make and let them decide what they want to sell at. Nothing to me.
