Homemade SPen holder out of old pen - my results
I was looking for a replacement Spen for my Note 8 but couldn't find any good (mostly the offset was unacceptable). Then I found a video where some guy (I can't find the video right now. If you know it please post a link and I will add it here) had a great idea of putting Note's 3 Spen inside old ordinary Uniball pen. With that in mind I bought Note's 3 Spen and found few old pens laying around in my office.
Three hours of work and this is what I got:
What I used:
1 x Old BIC pen
1 x PCB push button
1 x Note 3 Spen
some isolation tape
some plastic part that I used as a distance inside the pen (Spen was shorter than BIC pen)
Things to keep in mind:
- Be careful for your stylus! Mine got stuck twice and getting it out was pretty tricky.
- Use your tools wisely. You don't want to brake the Spen or cut/puncture your own hand!
- I was successful doing this homemade "spen holder" but I am not responsible for any damage or problems that may arise when you try to do something similar. Always use your brain and be sure you have enough knowledge before you start to work.
I thought one might use this idea if you need accurate and nice stylus in "full" size.
One can of course close the pen and then it looks just like ordinary one. The blue tape is just for my information that this one is actually Spen as I am using identical pen for normal paper writing and drawing
