Thought I would try a few Long pens from Vinnie at Turners Cabin.
They are a good quality kit 24 carat gold twist pen.
The only thing I am not to sure about is the wood to wood joint where the pen twists as in the first picture.
In the second picture I have modified it by adding a streamline centre band.
I would be grateful If members would give their opinions as to what they think.
Seems I am unable to upload pictures can anybody help

There is a sticky here (http://www.penturners.co.uk/tips-how-use-these-forums/3-adding-image-your-post.html)that is very useful in showing you how to post images.

I hope you get it sorted, I'd like to see the pens! :thumbs:

Nooooo :sob:

As a tip, I sometimes resize images by emailing them to myself through my phone, as soon as it goes to send it asks if you want the image "actual size" or reduced by various amounts eg medium, small etc. Its a quick way to do it without faffing with software!

Good luck with the next kit! :thumbs:

That's interesting Ian when I first joined the forum I had problems trying to post pictures. I could never post portrait types, 600 x 800 wouldn't upload but 800 x 600 no problem :thinks:

I think the image needs to be strictly within those pixel sizes.




2174


So your 534 x 640 image is 40 pixels to high Ian.

A maximum of 800 pixels wide and a maximum of 600 high.

Again, I think that is right, seems to work for me anyhoo :thumbs:

Hope that helps.
