    Where can I find a cheap blower motor?

    Do you have 120 or 240? I have a blower motor out of my old AC unit that can not be converted to 120.

    Anyone ever stabilized their own wood?

    I used a large mason jar and a home vacuum sealer. Left in in about a week and they turned out ok. I started with the equivalent size of a duck call blank but ended up cutting it up after the process into pen blanks. Need to turn a call for my nephew so I am going to try this process again

    Pen Making Questions

    I have several thicknesses of CA. Keep in mind that although pricey you will finish ALOT of pens with one bottle.
