    Default VIDEO: How to turn broken badminton racket into a pen

    I just made some nice pens from some of the broken racket.

    You can do the same too.

    Your jig saves a lot of money compared to using a professional carbon shaft cutter such as these:

    well, we are making pens here. precise perfect cut is not necessary. although i'd think using a dremel instead of a handsaw would create very close result.

    I'd be very interested in a video of the reverse process: turning pens into badminton rackets.

    Wow, those are some pretty illustrious pens! NS 8000? MP 100?
    Nice way to preserve broken treasures.

    Okay, maybe the artists can do something similar with badminton racquet shafts like the artist in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJdtnPFZ-Rg

    A Z-Slash pen would be boss - I thought that "Laser Yellow" was GBH of the optic nerve when I first saw it, but it's really grown on me.

    Okay I finally had a go at this, it was pretty fun hacking down expensive rackets.

    An update, the new rackets have thinner shafts, hence it is hard to fit the ballpoint pen end into them, I improvised and used some cellotape to make a normal thin ink barrel thicker and that's what I used on my Nanoray 750's and Voltric 70. The rest seem to fit okay with a bit of persuasion.

    The bottom two are Carlton racket pens...lol.

    Ugh...Ball points! But a head-heavy pen might write better

    This is really neat! Imagine all the flash boost pens that could be made! Could have a whole set of them.
