Talent PF1 Pick Factory Guitar Pick Punch - Make Your Own Guitar Picks

We've all been there; the lights are down, the curtain is about to go up, the show is about to begin, and the guitarist doesn't have a pick. Joy. OK, maybe that hasn't happened to you...yet. Maybe you're just learning to play. Regardless of what stringed instrument you pick or your level of proficiency, you'll always need picks. They may not seem expensive, but add it up over time, and you'll see they're nickel-and-diming you into the poor house.

Take control of your pick problem with the Pick Factory From Talent! Make your own 351-style picks (1-3/16" (30 mm) tall by 1-1/16" (25.5 mm) wide) from ordinary household items like expired credit cards, ID cards, gift cards, plastic containers or lids, and so much more. Just about anything made of flat plastic (up to 0.9 mm in thickness) can become your next pick. Simply slide your hapless victim into the business end of the Pick Factory, give it a quick squeeze, and voilà! Instant plectrum! Finish the edges to your taste with a fine file, emory board, sanding block or similar, and you're done. An endless supply of free picks is yours.

Built to last using durable metal construction, the Pick Factory will keep you supplied with free picks far into the future, and it's small and handy enough to keep in a gig bag so you can enjoy instant pickage anywhere your music takes you. The Pick Factory makes an excellent gift as well. Pick one up for yourself, and get another for a fellow shredder. Stop throwing away your money and fretting about having a pick when it counts. Get the Pick Factory now, and you'll always be ready to shred.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertised - Neat little gadgetI bought this pick punch just for fun. It is exactly as advertised. Quality made. Works very easily. Comes with a couple of strips of plastic that would yield maybe 8 or so picks, I haven't used those, just keeping them to the side for now. I have punched guitar picks out of the oddest sources, like cottage cheese, and soft margarine containers. The sides are a bit thin, but work for picks. The soft pliable lids are thicker and more flexible similar to a nylon pick. Credit Cards produce a nice pick, but it is heavier. If you are a pack-rat like me, you'll find sources of material to make picks from. If you're "picky" about your pick thickness, it might be a bit harder to find a precise source material. One flexible notebook cover can make a whole lot of picks, though. I'm glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made , durable.I would recommend to guitarists and artists, jewelry makers. I have made picks out of tons of materials left from packaging, used gift cards, plastic containers etc. use a small drill and jewelry findings to make ear rings, necklaces,bracelets, hat bands or string together for beaded door curtains. Great for craft shows. I have had mine for over 2 years and have made over 1,000 picks. For under 20 bucks you cannot go wrong. Try different plastics and vinyls to get the tone you want for your favorite strings, guitar combos. It does everything it claims and handles most materials within reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for pickers.I bought this as a gift for my daughter who goes through picks like crazy. We made quite a few after we received this and she is very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fun!This is the second pick press I have purchased from Parts Express. I use the two of them to engage students in a conversation around guitars playing.My small business called "Guitar Chief";, was formed in order to support the music programs in elementary and middle schools in my area. Guitar Chief's intent is to work with educators to donate ‘lovingly restored’ musical equipment to worthy children and promote musical interest in the school systems. Those instruments (guitars, amps and related equipment) that aren't earmarked for donation are sold on eBay to offset my costs. Many of these instruments for sale can be viewed on Da Chief's website (above).The school concerts; Band a Rama & Fiddle Fest; draw hundreds of family members from the area. I offer students the fun opportunity to make their own guitar picks. I needed to buy two pick presses because of the number of kids who flock around the table for the opportunity to personalize their own creations.If I need more, I know where to go. I always enjoy working with the friendly Parts Express folks, and appreciate their competitive pricing and quick delivery.Rock On!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's a noviltyIt jammed the first time I used it and I had to put it in a vice to open it. The picks have jagged edges and no one wants to use them but it's worth a laugh.

Does it leave a beveled edge or does it cut the edge off at a right angle? How smooth is the edge it cuts?

Asked by: jhm3
It leaves a flat edge that you can easily use a nail file to customize to whatever finish, fit, and feel that you like to play with.

In the description it doesn't specify up to what .mil material this will accept. I play bass and like a super heavy gauge pick and they are hard to find.

Asked by: gtrmn01
Up to .9mm thick and it cuts it to a 351 style guitar pick 1-3/16" (30mm) tall by 1-1/16" (25.5mm) wide

Asked by: YooperBill
