a pencil hack

This post about the Grip Matic pencil was the start of a friendship. So when my Grip Matic’s rubber band tore and I could not use it properly I kind of did not like it. That is, until another friend mentioned Sugru. I had some cables to go through with Sugru and some stuff was left over and was put to use with the pencil:

Some Sugru makes a Grip Matic usable again

Now of course the cost of a plastic mechanical pencil is far from prohibitive and normally I should have bought a new one. But I would have smiled less.
