My go to orange blank.
I use this blank when I get a request for an orange pen. The orange is similar to a Delta pen I own. The only reservation I have is the acetate is a strong smell, otherwise it turns good and polishes to a high gloss.

I will buy some more of that material.
I made a pencil with it and it turned out very well. The material is easy to turn and buffs to a high polish. I cut cut some grooves near the writing end to give a better grip.

Orange slimline pen
I have done about a dozen pens in the past. I was asked to do an orange acrylic pen for a friend. I had never done acrylic, all my other pens were wood. I had read that acrylic was tough to do (hard, brittle, etc.) so I approached this new experience wih cautin. Bought the blank and cut it to size on my benchtop bandsaw. Drilled with a 7mm drill bit on my lathe, using a pen vise, at about 750 rpm. It drilled nicely, with no blowouts or chipping. Used BarrelBond adhesive for the tubes. Next day used a low speed electric drill with a barrel trimmer to square up the blanks. Used a belt sander to round the edges of the blanks into a rough octagon. Mounted the blanks on my pen mandrel and set the lathe at about 1100 rpm. Turned the blanks down with carbide tools. It took about 3 times as longer than it normally took with the same tools and a wooden blank. Sanded to 1200 grit, also took about 3 times as long as wood. Polished with Hutt brown, then white. Final result was excellent.

Nice, but no cigar pen
It was a pretty color, but it cracked before I could finish turning it.
