Here is my jig/s. There are actually 2 because they kind of go together. They are not new, but, are very simple and helpful if you turn a lot of pens & pencils. The 1st part(not really a jig I guess), is the “mini” sled for the bandsaw. It works gr8 for cutting blanks. It has its own fence, and a stop block held by a small clamp for all those repetitive cuts. I’ve used this sled for a lot of other small things also. Part 2 is just a wood clamp that I cut a square hole to hold the pen blank to drill the hole through it for the brass sleeve for any innards that need to be epoxied or glued before turning. Thnx for lookin. Luck to all entrants, serious, and fun ones alike. Thanks Stumps for puttin it on also.
