Default Broken S-pen

If anybody has an S-pen that has broken, please PM me. I am trying to make my own and need the circuit card to make it work.

I make pens and pencils out of wood on my lathe and want to try my hand at a S-Pen stylus. I have been unable to find any pens that look decent and thought this might be a good solution.

Alternately, if anyone knows of a source for the circuit boards (both pen and eraser) please let me know. If I can put together a workable kit for these I might consider selling a few.

I cut one of mine open. I planned on printing a new shell for it. I think it will be cheaper for you to buy a new pen for 15$ and take it apart. Shiping etc will be quite expensive. If you want any dimensions on the circuit board I can measure it out and make pics.

Thanks, that would be great. There are several available for under $7. I have been planning to go ahead and buy one. I have a pen from a very old tablet computer the board works but it appears to be larger than the current version.

The tip of the pen with the coil seems very fragile to me. I would advise making a holder around the spen shell instead of designing a new pen from ground up.
I made a simple printable spen holder which can be found here, you should be able to make it from wood too.
Here are the photos and dimensions of the circuit board.
