In Detail

Do you like the smell of fresh ground coffee? Well if you make your pens with one of these blanks, you will be able to enjoy the aroma as you turn. Made from real coffee beans encased in cream coloured acrylic, these blanks offer a unique choice for the discerning pen turner. At 125 x 19 x 19mm many different pen types can be produced from this blank. N.B. You may find that stabilising the blank with thin cyanoacrylate adhesive as it is reduced in diameter will help to achieve a good finish.

coffee

the coffee bean blanks are a waste of money, if they hadn't been the price that they are it may have been ok, but there not. I started turning mine 1st one out of two bought, lovely smell; then I started to lose the coffee beans while turning, I finished up with one with no beans down one side the other with uneven beans. I don't think i'll be buying anymore.

coffee bean pens

the coffee beans blank does chip but if you start of with the skew its fine, it does take time and care but its worth while

Not as the picture

I bought one, and under the turning it didnt hold the beans, my tools are Sharp, so thats not it, and there where only beans in one end of the blanks, i send a complain and i got a new one, fine, but it was the same, i said they should look at it before shipping i didnt want one like the first on, now i got a blank i dont even want to use time on :-(

look at the Picture, it has beans al over it, thats not what i got, not even after a complain.

My Shed Smells Like Starbucks!

I purchased my first coffee bean blank last week and today I turned it into a pen.
I agree with Roger that the tool needs to be kept nice and sharp and the cuts need to be very light. Mind you, no matter how careful you are, it seems you will experience voids and weaknesses in the beans. My chosen filler was a drop of Nescafe Gold Blend moistened and made into a paste, then mixed into the voids with Superglue.
I finished it in the usual way for acrylics, going the grades of the micro sanding pads until nice and smooth. I was going to leave it like that as it smelt great but it was obvious that a slightly moist hand could smear the coffee colour across the pen. I covered the surface with a 50/50 of sanding sealer and cellulose thinners, wet sanding again with the finest few grades. Not sure if that's the right way but it worked a treat. And it still seems to smell of coffee!

Coffee blank chip out

Iv'e turned several pens, both slim-line and european styles. After the first attempt, which i had the same success as Janet Frehley but the next try turned out more successful. I have found that the tooling must be very sharp and make very fine cuts to reduce chip out of beans.
As i progressed with these blanks with experimenting, i now go through the shavings and pick out some of the bean, grind up and mix in with super-glue and fill chipped out areas. A bit of an effort but with trial and error it produces a smooth pen. Agree with Janet the smell is wonderful.
