Hey guys, I just finished up a Pelikan 140 ball-point! This was just an old 1955 German pen I had laying around.
It was pretty easy, actually you just need to cut off the nib section with a hack-saw and remove the piston-filler assembly from the back end. I used Elmer's glue and attached an easily replaced front end from a BIC stick and all I can say is -- WOW! This thing is so smooth compared to that flexy old gold stub nib that was melted and sold for gold scrap!
What do you all think? Uber-cool vintage style ball point! Yeah!
Hello. This is Mrs. Brianw
It may be a few days until he can post again.
Fortunately I was able to do CPR.
This was on the screen as I went to shut off his laptop after the rescue squad took him away.
I guess I will have to go to the bank and take one of their Ball Points for the conversion!
I hope Brian makes it! What would we do with his LE Pen if he doesn't?
Whew that was a close call.
That was easier to pull off than our other idea: the Edison Fusion. It has five nibs. And they vibrate. You can write a heck of a lot at one time, but the ink goes all over the place.

Sounds like a great idea
