Free walnut and bullet pens

August 5, 2008

SPECIAL EDITION OF WOODTURNER’S

FREE WALNUT TREE TO TAKE DOWN. Call Joe Apodaca @ 343-0580. Tree is green. There is no house close to fall it on (dang I hate that when that happens) and no Idaho Electricity wires (makes your eye balls spin in opposite directions when that happens) to worry about. This tree is in Boise. Call Joe for directions and particulars.

In the latest issue of Woodturning Design, there is an article about making a slim line pen from a .30-06 and a .308 empty rifle casings. Part of the article in not as clear as I would have made it I had written it. I E-mailed the fellow and expressed my concern. He talks about “new” brass. New to him means un- primered, un-powdered and no projectile. New could mean to me a freshly loaded round from that box you just purchased at Cabela’s. If you do that you turn your Jet Mini into a short-barreled cannon and I want to be on record of pointing this difficulty with the text of the article. Obvious you wouldn’t use a loaded round? Maybe so, maybe not!!!!!
