Love the homemade kraut cutter. I wish I had room for it. There was a time where I collected old recipe books put out by various communities for fundraising, like churches, choirs, civic groups, etc... I have some amazing home recipes from these books. The rhubarb bread looks really good. 

 

Great PIF, hope someone can use it!

Hi,

First time posting in this thread. I have some basic goodies that I'd like a newish Irish FP user to avail of. I know it can be difficult enough to source anything FP related in Ireland if you're not in Dublin. To start, I have a 90% full 30ml bottle of Diamine Salamander and a black, fine hooded nib Hero to give to the first FPNer in Ireland who PMs me.

I have a pretty embarrassing problem, it seems like I accidentally deleted the message thread from the winner of my last PIF (the Moderation PIF).    :blush:    Can the person who won that please PM me their address again, because I remember the username roughly but not well enough to look you up in the FPN member search.

One last PIF..... a Noodlers Ahab piston flex in Medieval Lapis (Blue/White striated). Too big a pen for me (I have small hands) with not enough flex. Good pen for someone who wants to try the 'flex modification' mentioned elsewhere on the board. Has been inked once. Complete with box and info sheet.

Prefer someone who hasn't claimed something recently but it will be 'first-come, first served'. US shipping only please. Ends as soon as it's claimed or June 15, whichever comes first.

 

(thanks to the Goulet Pen for the picture of pen)

For pen turners.  CONUS because I've sent wood internationally before and don't need the hassles associated with it. Dimensions are approximate. One piece of black walnut 8-1/4"x1"x3/4" and a remnant from another project, oak/maple/cherry/black walnut 7"x3-1/2"x3/4" that should make an interesting pen or two depending on how you cut it.  Let me know why you want it.  First good reason gets it unless I get tired of it sitting on my desk and then it goes to whomever.

 

Last chance.  It is the end of the fiscal year and need the desk space for reports.

 

Off to injesticate

Just a short question, I was wondering if if someone could answer. Would I be allowed to list a PIF on both here and fp geeks forum as last time I offered something as UK only I got little interest so I would hope to increase the number of entries by doing this.

How you give something away is up to you I'd have thought?

You could post the item and say you are also accepting entries from elsewhere?

What may not be clear is that the cost to ship to CONUS will be a LOT less.

 

 

So I offered the review "art work" to DCWAITES first, but he turned it down. It will cost $15 to ship to anywhere other than CONUS.  It's 18"x24" (big enough to be a poster).  Anyway, first one who wants to pay for shipping, can have the cool Amber original. 

 

The original 18x24 poster review.

This is a somewhat belated thank you to Paul for his fabulous PIF.
 
I have been using the Reform for a few days at school and really liking it. I thought there may be issues with its small size and my big hands, but none so far. Definitely recommend this neat little pen!
 
Sorry for the giant picture. I've made the file smaller but it still seems to more than fill the screen. I need to go and find a small child to show me how it is done. :rolleyes:
