Good looking build and display. Unfortunately Sensa no longer makes pens – which is probably why they never followed up on your fantastic display case. I don’t know how much trouble it would be to change out the name display area – but it should work for any of the pen manufacturers – I’d shop it around and see.

Thanks Bill, This was back in 1998. They paid for the display and I shipped it to them. Was told how great it was and they loved it, just never got a call back for any.
Maybe they would still be making pens had they ordered some. LOL

Nice job. How do you know what the right lighting level is in a display like that? Is there a formula or is trial and error?

I would like to say I checked out the lumens and the dimensions and angles that the lights put out, then picked out the correct color range. But I’m not that smart and just used what I bought off the shelf…
Don’t know of a formula. If I had to do it again, I would do a little research on the different types of bulbs available and then pick the appropriate ones. Lots of LEDS available now days.

I see, I ask the question because I’ve made a few pieces with lighting and have struggled to get it right. Trial and error is a problem when it means you end up with excess light fixtures or the ones bought aren’t suitable and you end up getting more. Oh, the joys.

I guess it really depends on what your trying to light up, but if you do a search for Photometric charts and enter the type bulbs you want to use you can find the range/temperature of different bulbs.
Sorry I’m not more help.

Have your say...
