...I'd love to have some sort of a metal rest for the pen,
something that would elevate it off the table a bit and keep it
from slipping. Any one know of something like this?...
MaryAnn, perhaps this would work for a wax pen. I made a rest for a
hot glue gun as follows. At a grocery store, hardware store, or
wherever brooms and mops are sold, buy a metal thing meant for
screwing to the wall, in order to pop the broom handle into it,
holding it vertically. It’s made of sheet metal, about half an inch
wide, and curled in at both ends. Screw it onto a horizontal piece
of wood, then set your wax pen handle on it. For the hot glue gun, I
also screwed a metal jar lid onto the wood – the hot tip of the
glue gun would rest there.
All the best,
