Default Introducing - the EDC DuraClick Pencil (?)

From the depths of Acme Labs, here's an EDC DuraClick 0.7mm Pencil Conversion in Black Anodized Aluminum with Brown Mallee Burl body. It's sanded to 1000, and finished with (2) coats of Myland's Cellulose Sanding Sealer and (4) coats of Myland's Melamine Lacquer Gloss. Finishing was done prior to engraving.

Conversion Instructions are provided below in a Word doc if anybody else wants to play...

Modifying the EDC DuraClick.doc

(Edit for clarification: In the attached instructions, do not touch the Clicker when retracting the pencil lead)

Very nice ... thanks for sharing !!

So ... just to clarify ... when retracting, do you push the clicker button as well as pushing down on a hard surface ?

No, just press the tip down without using the clicker. I realized after I posted that I wasn't clear on that. My bad!
