1 review for Aluminum Honeycomb & Alumilite Pen Blanks -“Alumicomb”

  1. Daniel Stuewe

    My daughter bought me this blank for Christmas (along with some other ones from Wind Country that I can’t wait to use). I used it with the Penn State Vertex click pen (gun metal finish) because, how could I not with the honeycomb and the hexagon shape of the Vertex. Drilling and turning the pen was straight-forward with the only thing to really note is that it doesn’t turn in ribbons using carbide tools (square and round). Material comes off of the tool in small bits (I haven’t turned Alumilite before so I don’t know if that is the nature of the material or if the honeycomb causes it to break up.) There was very little pitting which was able to be sanded down and the blank polished up well. I would have liked more blue in my blank, but the wow factor really is the honeycomb. I forgot to paint the hole before gluing (5 min epoxy) in the tube but there is only a slight greenish tinge at the ends (the white is opaque and the blue translucent). I was concerned about pressing the kit together since there are some small bits of Alumilite at the edges, but I didn’t crack or pop off any of it when assembling the kit. Overall it is a unique blank that I’ll enjoy for years.
