|Message||I stumbled upon your blog during my efforts to fix my dad's old Koh-i-Noor mechanical pencil, and pleasantly found far more than what I was asking for. Not only did I learn that the bit of wire sticking out of the eraser actually has a purpose, but also that pencil lead can smell like lavender! I also enjoyed your bit of content on Microns (one of my favorite drawing utensils). I'm looking forward to reading through your other posts and to clicking on as many ads as possible. |
Hope you are doing well
|Message||I hope this finds you well. Thank you for your efforts in reviewing this vast collection of mechanical pencils. I find your reviews extremely thorough and a pleasure to read. I used to prefer a .3mm myself back when I was doing board drafting, but these days I'm more fond of my .5mm Kuru Toga Roulette and .5mm Graphgear 1000. Best wishes to you.|

|Message||Hello there, I hope everything is alright with you + your wife. I enjoy your blog; it's so useful and easy to read, and your reviews convinced me to purchase a Platinum Pro-Use II. I'm definitely enjoying its perfect balance and diameter, but I inserted some paper in the body to stop the mechanism from rattling (seems to be a complaint for many people). I will continue to read your blog; once again, I wish you well.|
|Message||I suppose after all these time you have found all you could. I can see that you have all the best out there pencilwise. Many of those are not around anymore.|
Fun read for me even though there is no hope I can ever find those pencils. I do have a few that I enjoy using. Advance in lead tech has enable them graphite to be laid on paper so smooth they are almost fountainpenlike.

|Message||I have a .9mm Alvin Draft Matic Works perfect...until i ran out of lead.|
I have added .9mm lead refills (3" length refills) to the tube feeding through the eraser area-but the leads do not work.
How do you replace the lead? Am I using the wrong length refills?? I can not get the lead to go into place.
Please help -if you can instruct me how to replace these leads.
