    Dear Shapies,

    look what arrived :)

    some of the parts needed some grinding and fine tuning to make them al fit and work properly. It seems that the tolerances in printing steel are a lot different then those of plastic.

    some more eye candy:

    I must admit I have a soft spot for pens and these look awesome!

    Be sure to make the metal ones available for sale when you sort out the tolerance issues.

    Nice, just be aware that anyone using the plated metal ones every day will soon find the plating wearing off...
