Fits my 84mm Tinker and Fisher pen.

Nice, I have been considering something similar to protect the chrome a bit.

Totally stole the idea on from this thread.  There are some great simple sheaths that house a SAK and pen or even inexpensive full size pen slip case that can be cut down I imagine.   

Yes, I have seen the one kaput posts from time to time and have been much impressed!

That purple is  8):like: :like:

+1 :o 8)

I guess I need to get a fine refill for mine as well :think: :D

Thanks guys, the gold clip is a bit odd but I bought a Blueberry Bullet pen for my girlfriend and she didn't get on with the clip so I borrowed it. Carried it again today with my Tinker small and Classic Clockwork.

An interesting thread.  I thought I had contributed but it looks like my memory is bad or maybe I contributed to another similar thread.  I have a bullet pen and carry it most of the time.  I find it a bit slim and slippery but it works for short notes etc.  I have a trekker but find that it is just too short for writing very much.

Very recently I found a pen similar to a bullet pen however it is a bit thicker and better to write with.  The refill was dry and not available locally as it was a Schneider Topball.  Ordering from ebay would be quite expensive and not worthwhile.  The schneider refill is fairly large so I was able to make a spacer for the white extension on a fisher refill and also make a small aluminium sleeve to fit near the nib end.  As a result the "new" pen now fits a fisher refill quite nicely and  I like it.

I would have photos except that photobucket is acting up and I cannot seem to upload right now.  I used a lathe to make the two small pieces to adapt the fisher refill to the pen however it is quite easily done (although maybe not quite as elegant), with a bit of masking tape built up in strategic areas.

How it's made just showed how they make the pens, though mostly showed the refill side of it.

I am able to get onto photobucket finally so here are the photos related to the above.  First is the pen with it's original (empty) refill:



This shows the fisher refill with small aluminium adapter that slides on to the ball end and the white spacer taped in place.  I made a small insert for the spacer as it was too short if pushed on fully.  Cound have made a new spacer but there was no point as this works well.


Another photo of the fisher refill with the aluminium adapter and the short piece that fits inside the white plastic spacer.


It would be easy to adapt a lot of pens to the fisher refill without going to much trouble. Fisher refills are available most places and in my view work very well.

Interesting.  :tu:

I have the empty plastic case...I fear it is hiding in my collection somewhere...which means it may be gone forever.  :facepalm:

I feel you, I had one and somehow just lost it, after so long I just broke down and bought a new one, which I still have today but the tube is cracked, still works and all but sometimes just comes apart. That's why I bought a semi imitation plastic one, works kinda the same as the bullet, comes apart and then doubles in size, but uses just a simple bic ink cartridge, just what I need, and wont feel bad if I lose it just out like $3.. don't get me wrong, I still got my space pens on my nightstand and desk!

Regarding the chrome/burgundy pen with modified fisher refill it was actually a promotional pen for a fastening sales business.  It's made in China but very nicely done.  It's a little bit bigger around than a bullet space pen and more comfortable for my use.  There is no manufacturers name on it.

The pen is mainly plastic but has a decent build quality.
