Dang! TheRedGoat Edited to add: No, nevermind it was just clogged. Had to rub it on some paper to make it work again. Further updates as conditions warrant.

OH MY GOD! It's not a PREBAN pen is it? Because once it's out of ink, that's it man. No more hi-cap pens!!

It's a postban. Thus I initially was angry at the gubmint for the low capacity ink tube. Luckily it was just a FTF/FTE. Nobody got hurt and I kept it pointed in a safe direction at all times. (except when I licked it with my tongue) TheRedGoat

You licked what now?

You young punks don't know how lucky you have it. Back in the good ol' days we had 'pencils'. They came in all shapes/sizes and hardnesses... but if it wasn't a number 2 then we were screwed. Back then you could always tell the geek. He was the one with his own sharpener. They're all multi-millionaires now. Damned geeks.

You have to be careful with those postban's too... since they can't be unloaded, even when dissasembled. They're still safer than the preban fountain type pens. Those are known for spraying ink all over for no reason. Highly unsafe in untrained hands. Glad to hear all is safe RedGoat! Carry on writing.

Bunghole... The tip of my pen. [:D] Ilikelegs.. this is "Post here to get your post count up without posting" LT explained how to do it. Stealth... And you had to cut your own trees and whittle them down to a proper nub, right? [;0] M1QJ, thanks for your words of caution. Is there a function check I should use to be sure it is still safe to use? Cluster... ROFL, man, hog hunting when it is 94+ degrees is tough. Much more fun to just fish, drink beer and relax in this heat. Shadowblade, up hill, both ways, in the snow, with no shoes, right? Cluster, that looks like an illegally modified pen, imho. I think that might even be a violation of the board rules to post that pic. TheRedGoat

I know what the problem was if it was a post ban than if obviously had a ftf because it didn't have a ink splash suppressor. thats why I paid $1200 for my preban.

K, will do. Seriously, just to be safe, I am now using a preban wooden pencil (number 2 of course). TheRedGoat

You got cheated. Check for the desk lamp online coupon at SG and click it. After selecting the postban pen, then remove the free desklamp from your order. Turn around backwards in your chair and press ADD to cart. Voila! Instant discount. n00b TheRedGoat

That pen was not an American pen, was it? If it was an American made pen, it would still be working now. It was prolly a rice burner pen.

We had to scrawl crude shapes on our cave walls with a rock.

You have to reinstall the pen s/w Then update the drivers Then you have to add an adaptor! Then restart forty times. After that call tech support and wait on hold for three hours.

You guys are depressing me. Maybe I should just get out of the habit of writing altogether. Too many laws, restrictions, capacity limits, manufacturers.... TheRedGoat

Those are obviously fakes. Neither one has a bayonette lug attached. We all know that is one of the required evil feature for a preban.

Well, I am pretty sure they are fake, but I just got this email from You-Know-Who.... (Hi BOG!) "TheRedGoat, Sounds to me like you might be interested in a full-auto pen-sear. I can get you one, but it's unregistered, so it's your responsibility not to install it in any pens. For all I know, you want the sear simply because collecting pen-sears is your "hobby". Perhaps you "just like the way pen-sears look". Well, I am curious, because I have heard there are some pre-'86 DIAPS (Drop In Auto Pen Sears) floating around out there. Anyone know if this is legal or not? TIA TheRedGoat

Can anyone tell me how difficult it would be for me to modify my #2 Pencil to accept an ink cartridge? I'm thinking of something along the line of a '92 Bic injector series in either blue or black ink. Unless I'm going to write at night in which case I would like to use red ink.

Sometimes you can get "empty" ballpoint pens to write again by scribbling on the sole of a tennis shoe to get the ink flowing again. I used to sell these pens to supplement my MWFCRCE income.
