Here are the competition Entries for the May 2016 Competition. Please don't tick the Like Box and please don't comment on any individual pen until after the voting ends. The Voting will end on Sunday 5th. June at a time to be determined. As there were only 13 entries only 1 prize will be on offer, the winner will be able to choose from 40.00 to their Paypal account or the blanks that Jim put up here (http://www.penturners.co.uk/penturners-competition-forum/16273-may-competition-2016-a.html#post245490)

You will have to wait for Jim to activate the Voting Box and remember you have only 1 vote and it can't be for your own pen, I may not be omnipotent, but I can see who voted for which pen:thumbs: If you need help with how to vote/nominate have a look here (http://www.penturners.co.uk/penturners-competition-forum/538-how-use-nomination-competitions.html#post4274). All member can vote not just those who entered the competition and are encouraged to do so. The theme of this competition was to produce a pen or pencil from any material, but must include metal other than the kit parts.

We are not sure what time the voting will finish, we think it will finish at the time on the clock that it was started so it could be just after 8pm. on Sunday, better to think 8pm at the latest, but vote as soon as you can rather than miss the vote.

Good luck to everyone who entered the competition:thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

Blimey. This has really sparked everyone's imaginations hasn't it?. What an incredibly high standard and such a difficult choice. Are you absolutely certain we can only have one vote Peter? I'd have been proud to have made all of them and I wouldn't mind owning one or two of them.

As far as I know only 1 vote is possible, it would be nice to have 3 votes for 3 different entries, at least it would make it easier to choose.

I think Peter is using diplomacy rather than 'naming and shaming' the list is total viewers inclusive of voters and non voters. On the other hand I may have got hold of the wrong end of the stick .....:fart:

That's why it says "If your name is below and you have not voted get on and do it."

You have already stated that you have voted, so of course you don't have a button, there is only 1 vote per member. If you let me know what you don't understand I will try to use words of 1 syllable to explain:kiss:

Sorry Peter I was away, did look at entries on phone but couldn't work out how to write on it. The voting tab had a cross on it and wouldn't click.:sob::sob:
The entries were all great and it would've been awful hard to decide which one to pick.:thinks::thinks:
