I have a Rotoring Rapid Pro Pen. Takes Parker Gel refills. Brass barrel, writes smooth and has a very good feel in the hand.

For those who take writing seriously.

Anybody in this group want a free lens, postage not included?

I picked up a KR lens in an antique store for cheap about a year ago. Other than external dust and fingerprints, the lens seemed in perfect condition. I removed the Ricoh pin and the lens was working fine. On a walk with my Super Program last weekend I noticed the lens had not stopped down when I removed it from the body. It didn't budge rotating the aperture ring. I pulled the mount yesterday and the mechanism is sticking. I decided the lens isn't worth my time tinkering with. I reinstalled the mount, but may not have correctly aligned the aperture arm with the internal portion - point is, there are no missing parts other than the Ricoh pin.

The optics are in excellent shape and the IQ isn't half bad.. Focus MC Auto Zoom 80-200 F/4.5. Has the 'A' contact. The lens says 'macro' but is actually just close focus 1:5 at 200mm and 1:10 at 100mm.
Make a photo of it, and post it in the Marketplace.

Yep, I recall that, and a good conversation it was!

Indeed. Always a good topic for conversation.

Now where can I place my cold, wet nose where it will have the best result?

when I found my pencil it was during the period they were discontinued
found it on the back shelf of an art store in Minneapolis for 49.99

I was unaware the pen had become a reality again, i'll look for one, thanks

for several years I used the Koh-I-Noor pen set with pelikan inks...Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Pens - BLICK art materials

I have a full set of Koh-I-Noor technical pens. Ruby tips. Great for drafting, even getting artsy with ink line drawings. I would never part with them.

Glad to hear you're doing better.
When we said we hope you get straightened out soon, we meant physically and mentally, one out of two ain't bad.


With allusion to the guy who named himself after a certain main course food stuff.


Only the numbers are a little out, but only ONE out.

the archival sharpies are very consistent
they neither bleed nor fade
come to think of it, no smearing either

when I started digitizing my art work the sharpies were just more efficient

eventually someone wanted the koh-i-noors more than I did

one thing where they excelled was the line work when I illuminated calligraphy
the foofaraw camouflaged my lame lettering
the pens were precise and accurate

arthritis has taken the fun out of that now
