Ditto what David just said.  GWeimer does great work.  A special thanks to Panjaro and DPritchett who have also enabled me to get Esties, but special thanks to Bruce who hand picked Esties just for me and my kids.

I meant no slight to Panjaro or DPritchett or Bruce. I just happen to know more about weimer1's work.

Sorry if I gave offense.

OH, David, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to even imply that you were slighting anyone. I agree with you, GWeimer's work is wonderful.  I have taken his restored pens to pen shows and handed out his cards.

You guys are making me blush!  I appreciate the kind words.  I found early on that I got more enjoyment out of working on the pens than I do from simply collecting them.  I'm in the process of revamping my little kitchen - I'm surrendering the kitchen table, and replacing with a real workbench, and I have an electroplating machine and a mini-lathe to set up and learn.  I'm hoping to really advance my skills in the next year.

Does this mean that you are giving up eating?

LOL!  My kitchen table has been more of a work area for over a year.  I have a little square big enough for a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee left.  I just surrendered to the inevitable, and will probably have more actual table space as a result.
