I did not see any category that this really fit into so I placed it here. I also did not find anyway to search for pen or pens or pen making in Family WW---So I have a question for pen makers.
I will state the problem. The “ball point,” “roller ball” pens in pen kits just do not seem to be top quality. They are pens that do not necessarily start putting out ink when I start writing. They are pens that require significant downward pressure to write continuously.
If I did discover a pen refill that will always start when I do and that requires very little downward pressure, how do I know which kits it would fit into? I am thinking of a pen cartridge that will write like a Pilot throw-away pen model “Precise V-7 rolling ball, fine”.
I have had people tell me to use kits that take the Parker or Cross refills. However, those refills are not as good as some of the throw-away advertising pens or throw-away pens sold for about a buck. If I go to the effort to make a pen and give it to a friend I want it to work and work well.
What Can You Recommend for the refill and what quality kits will use it?
Not that I would try to pass the buck or anything---HOWEVER, Carol Reed suggested I do this when she visited a couple days ago.
