I got some pentracryl. Not sure is it really helped.
I used it with bodark (osage orange), box elder and some other not remembered blanks.
The box elder came out punky and useless.
The bodark came out with the spalting emphasized. I had cut it to size for some pen blanks but have not yet turned it.
That is one of this weekends projects
(I got a Beall Pen Wizard last week and the bits came yesterday so that is a major project.)
I had put them in the pot at 40 psi and left the AC running for about 4 h ours (because of the slow leak).
Still playing around.
Just haven’t had time to update folks.


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
