Ha. U got it. Winter comes.  Knee replacement Thursday then the other as soon as I can so plugs

Good luck with the knee. Had both of mine done last year. One, heal up, second one. Was bouncing around on the rocks down by the tailwater around 2 months after the second one. First week after each sucked, but got better. Stick with the PT. Best advice is that everyone is different, don't base your recovery on how others did or are doing. Both my knees were different as far as recovery. Rather than compare how you are doing from day to day, compare to how you were the week before. After it was all done, wished I had done it several years ago. Certainly not perfect, but a whole lot better than before the replacement. Shoot me a PM if you want more info or just need some encouragement as you heal up. 

 

Hey Bassmaster, you know what would really help Kones1 heal up after surgery, one of those juicy needles you've been making. Take his mind off the pain and give him something to look forward to once he heals up. Come on sweet phart, send the man a plug :D:stick::moon:

Thank you Jig Man. I had first done today. I ordered 10 Fixter needlefish last week! I have 6 Bassmaster needles, sure would be pretty swell to have 10 of each   The wicked ho ‘ I am. I don’t have PM option. I’m walking 100 steps every hour and start PT Monday. Doing the other I think December 9 of this is ok

These look FANTASTIC !!! PLEASE take this next comment as just a little advice, use QUALITY guts. I can't count the amount of  times I've been given Beautifully made pens, that turn out to write terrible. It's such a let down. I don't turn pens, but I do like buying and trading for nice wooden ones, and when you get a really nice looking pen, that also glides like a dream, it's a great thing. You actually WANT to write with it !!  Again, not criticism obviously, just a little tip. You go through so much work to  turn the blank, might as well go that extra mile with the innards. Great job on these !  :th:

Thanks , yea the hardware and mechs aren’t to bad , but ink tubes def leave alil to be desired .  Pretty sure they just a standard refill for twist pens . I def gonna see about buying some better ones
