Finally was able to order some of the gearshift pen kits from PSI and picked up the 3 pen sample pack. I had a really nice Fiji blank from WoodCraft that I wanted to use for one of them. I also decided to pair another one with an african blackwood blank I had laying around. I made a few more pens but those are 100% acrylic and I don’t want to “dirty the waters” of LJ by putting non-wood related projects up! :) (for those who didn’t catch it, that was my attempt at on-line humor).

Thanks for looking!

Very nice looking pens, I like the shifter mechanism for advancing the refill, that is unique.
Can the shift mechanism stay in all 6 positions? is the refill extended in the middle positions?

The shifter mechanism can stay in all 6 positions but it only extends the the refill in the bottom two. Plus, I don’t write any faster in any gear! ;)
