Pilot G2 hack


During my creating a custom Moleskine planner post, We talked about a Uniball Signo RT Gel 0.38mm pen, for both creating the planner and writing agenda and task things.

In the beginning I would purchased a 4-pack of Pilot G2 mini 0.5mm pens for pocket-ability, but discovered the ink bled too a great deal through slim Moleskine pages, and so I picked up a 4 pack of Uniball Signo RT Gel 0.38mm pens. The thinner 0.38mm gel pens work very well with Moleskine paper since the line is slim and quick drying.

This weekend I became looking at the Uniball Signo and G2 Mini, once I wondered if I could hack the Uniball 0.38mm refill to the office in a G2 mini pen human anatomy. Once I took the 2 pens apart, I noticed maybe it's done, with a flick of a computer program blade to trim the Signo's cartridge down to size.

In character of Do-it-yourself, We gave it a try. The G2 mini to Uniball Signo mini transformation worked so well, I decided to to share the easy conversion procedure along with other Uniball Signo followers nowadays, filled with photos:

1. Right here you can view the way the G2 mini and Uniballl Signo contrast hand and hand. The G2 mini is about 4.5 inches long, versus 5.5 ins for the Uniball Signo. For pocket-ability, that decrease in an inch means a great deal — making the G2 mini well-suited for pockets.

2. After that, we exposed the 2 pens evaluate the length of the cartridges, so that as you can view, the Uniball Signo is approximately 1 inches longer, but features area for trimming. I noticed that brand-new Uniball Signo cartridges have ink at or above the location you ought to reduce them down without generating a mess. The simplest way to remedy it is by attracting utilizing the cartridge until the ink level falls sufficient that a slice is reasonable.

3. Using a computer program knife, x-acto knife or any other razor-sharp instrument, trim the Uniball cartridge down seriously to equivalent length given that G2 mini cartridge as shown within the image above (see the dotted range). I've that Uniball Signo cartridge makes use of a much thicker external wall compared to the G2 mini, so that the G2 might actually have close to the exact same number of ink even though it appears like less.

4. Right here you see the nicely sliced Uniball cartridge, ready for insertion to the G2 mini pen human body. If you'd like to be non-wasteful, you are able to maintain the G2 mini cartridges for backups, or make use of obvious tape to stick the chunk of Uniball cartridge you've sliced to the top the G2 mini cartridge, and employ this in a standard G2 pen. The G2 plus clipped cartridge combo fails in empty Uniball Signo pen figures, because of the G2's nib.

5. Use your brand-new Uniball Signo RT Gel 0.38mm mini pen, and revel in! :-)
