Hey All,



Some Of you know that I recently Just got a New 7x12 Mini Lathe.:wave: Been having alot of Fun with it and have made a few things lately on it "Host Heatsinks and Driver Heatsinks". I can tell you guys for all those that think Making heatsinks are easy even for the Pro's at it, well I found out that its Much Much Harder then it appears when you are just looking at the final Product. So I have much Respect for those that run lathes on the forum even more now that i own one myself and know what it is like. There are Lots of steps Involved in making heatsinks and Not even going into how many more steps it is making a Host on a Lathe.

Anyways, I dont think iam Ready to make a Host quit yet so I took one of my Favorite Pen Hosts and gave it an even better look to it IMO.:D

Most of you seen this thread that i did on the First MXDL Polished Pen:
http://laserpointerforums.com/f48/mxdl-pen-polished-up-my-new-favorite-pen-64189.html

Which Still IMO Looks Great Either Polished Or Not.

So I gave it a Little More twist and Hope you guys Like it.:)


I still Have to Finish the Polishing on it (Just needs a Few More Passes) and i will Post an Update of it Finished later.:wave:



Pictures:






























The Front and tail is what needs to get polished a little more and then everything will look Nice and Polished.:)






:thanks: For Looking.!!!

Has a nice simple look to it, but makes it look 100x better than the original! :D

Sometimes a little tweak is all something needs to take it from nice to looking sweet ;)
