    Solarno finished in Cellulose Acetate

    F4522EAD-7AB1-4719-AAAB-29A0CF2BCDB5.jpg

    I had my reservations on the architecture of Mr Dartís latest creation but the reality was different from the web pictures. I used some cellulose actetate that Iíve had a while, and after the issue of how to increase the id of the predrilled hole had been overcome the material proved to be fabulous.

    The mechanism on this pen is the smoothest I have ever come across, itís a lovely kit, Iíve got about fifty of these acetate rods so will be making more of these in the near future.

    Have to agree, that's lovely stuff to turn and takes a beautiful finish...Mr Dart does think his kits through, not bought any yet but I have high hopes when I do...

    All joking aside I am slightly confused, have you used a pre-drilled resin blank that you have drilled a bigger hole through and then finished it with CA?
