“Dress Blues” Pen Blanks

$15.00

Inspired by the Marines Dress Blues uniform, these blanks honor our brave men and women in the Marine Corps who fight to protect our freedoms and rights. They are reminiscent of the Dress Blues pants. Top it off with a Navy Blue blank on the top of a two piece pen, and you have the whole uniform, the perfect pen for a Marine!

With the round blank design, you can get your pens turned even faster without having to knock the corners off first.

Check out the other striped blanks that honor our brave men and women in service, the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line.

The Alumilite Advantage!
Alumilite is by far the best resin I’ve found for casting pen blanks. It’s a joy to turn, yet it polishes up to a high gloss. Finishing these blanks doesn’t get any simpler! Just sand it up to a high grit or use micro mesh pads, then finish it off with some plastic polish or on a buffing wheel.

GOOD BYE CHIPOUT!! Alumilite blanks are not brittle like many of the mass produced or polyester resin blanks on the market. The blanks are cast under pressure to ensure there are no voids or trapped air bubbles in the blanks.

These blanks are created using a laminating method. With proper turning techniques, these blanks will turn fabulous. Improper turning or machining techniques can lead to lamination failure, however. Make sure you are turning at high speeds (over 3,000 rpms) and only use sharp tools when turning. Also, make sure you get proper glue coverage and bonding along the entire length of the tube and blank. Adhesion problems can occur if there are large areas lacking glue coverage between the tube & blank.
