So close but still a bit leafy looking David.
How about and how hard, putting a spine through it as a mast?
I certainly admire your doggedness of effort.

It can be made out to be a yacht but at 1st glance it could be a plucker. :winking:

George has been particularly helpful with this, but in this instance I'm going to have to let you down, guys. I thought you might enjoy the 'toolpath map' of the inlay hollowing. Bear in mind that the tool is 0.8mm in diameter, yet the scale of the inlay makes it look large and clumsy:

1245

That might impress upon you just how limited I am by the scale of these inlays - the max width is 12.4mm (dictated by the diameter of the pen barrel) and the smallest cut width I can make is just about 1mm (dictated by the end mill). Adding a mast, for instance, would require that I cut a path approx 0.5mm wide (too thin!) and fill it with a sliver of inlay about 0.5mm by about 25mm by about 7.5mm deep! Just not possible without better tooling, I'm afraid!

Of course young David I was forgetting you are not engraving it on but embedding it in DOH!!!
So sorry young man, I think one could do it with engraving how about that Terry make your blanks and get them engraved?

Unfortunately George they are not for me. I was asked by the Principal Engineer of Babcock Marine in Plymouth if I could do a pen with an inlay in. He wants this pen to take pride on his boat. I told him that I didn't have the equipment to do that but I knew a person who might be able to help!!!!!
