Pen/Pencil combo kit question

Post by <a.. » Wed, 09 Jul 2003 15:33:04



I was able to get my hands on more then 20 of these kits at around $1 a
peice in Pasadena.  The trouble is it's not a kit available on any of the
usual vendor sites.  It's a bit of a complicated kit since it uses two tube
sizes, and I had to mix and match bushings, but the result is nice.  Problem
is I can't see how one works the mech pencil without a small hole to push
the tip through to release the lead.  It seems to click like it can release
it when twisted... but it doesnt seem to work... either I'm wrong or I'm
missing something in making the kit.  The kit uses a twist mechanism, a
knurled black metal holder right after the gold tip and the eraser hidden in
a gold***on cap.  Anybody see/use this kit and can provide some
insight????
