I use this Twist Erase III from Pentel in 0.7mm as my daily user :cheers: I love the twist out eraser these come with as they are great for erasing and last a really long time :like:



The other 2 in this pic is a regular black sharpie and a 2mm lead mechanical pencil (no brand but well made) that I carry daily with me :tu:

Hum... is that a twist out eraser in your mechanical pencil or is it a play-doh dispenser?...

It's crazy to think that an eraser could be that big in a mechanical pencil that takes the same size lead as every other regular mechanical pencil  :ahhh :D

The little guy asked me for a diff pencil, he’s been using his cheep plastic one and he loves it but wants something better, yet last year I gave him a nice metal one and of course he lost it.. go fig. But now in high school he says things are diff, I did get him a little unique stocking stuffer, that 3+1, nothing much better then the simple clicker he’s using but it’s a all in one, so idk, he’s either going to love it or hate it, I just don’t want to get him something that he’s just going to lose..

Hopefully being in high school he will be a bit more careful with his stuff :salute: I know I started getting better with my own things around that age as well :tu:

I would hope so, but do I leave him with that all in one or do I see about getting him a pair of metal zebras maybe 701’s or something of that nature?

Speaking of my favorite graphite size....here is a Caran d’Ache Mario Botta 2mm clutch pencil. This one gets a lot of pocket time!

A nice affordable Alvin Draft/matic. The DM05 is a 0.5mm graphite mechanical pencil with a window that rotates and you can have the type of graphite showing. For those who have different usages on multiple pencils with different graphite.

I need to check :think: but seems like I have an Alvin as well :cheers: I also have one that you can twist to tell which type of lead is in the pencil, it may very well be the Alvin that does this as well :think: I will have to look :tu:

Great looking pencil  :like:

Oh you got to have a very smooth hand, and you can’t click the lead out tooo many clicks! But with very little pressure and a smooth/soft hand it is doable! Kinda funny with someone who was in construction/mechanics, you’d think it wasn’t possible, speaking of construction, I found another unique pencil I have,,
I guess they took that other unique round school pencil that did the same and made it into construction, kinda interesting, once the one gets crappy you just take the tip out and put it in the other end, and low and behold a brand new one comes out..

I have one of those Swanson ones as well :tu: Someone else also made a red plastic carpenter pencil style one that had special lead as well :think: I had a few of those but gave up after a while because it became harder and harder to find lead for it :-\ The lead slid out in increments from what I remember :think: I need to see if I can find it :cheers:

Yeah, one of these, I had one but I have no clue were it disappeared to, I also had one that writes with a wax, absolutely great for what I needed, wrote on anything and since I was marking black pipes, not only did it write but yellow was great! Here’s a pic of my other junk, and you can see the extras to that one, and you can see the other soapstone and that other large wax,,

:iagree: and at my age, I am loosing my grip so I am having to really think about holding a good grip...I would not even attempt a 0.3mm. I could do a 0.5mm with no problems untill 3 years ago. Now I am more comfortable  with 0.7mm at the thinnest, and no problems at all.  :tu:

Well you are a busybody! I have never tried the flat type graphite. I would just sandpaper a 5.6mm graphite untill I was happy with it.
