Stylus & Case:
'screw-apart-reset' stylus for your PalmPilot -
Olger Diekstra made his own screw-apart stylus. "I
already have two Grey styluses that I received when I
bought the Pilot. So I creating my own
screw-apart-and-reset stylus. This is how I did it: I
used the two Grey styluses and cut 'em both at the
appropriate length. In the bottom part I drilled a hole
and carefully created the screwthread in it. On the other
end I also created screwthread and inserted a (very) hot
paperclip into the tip and cut off the extra piece. Off
course, you need to be a bit handy and have the
appropriate tools, and work carefully, but as you can see
on the pic, it can be done (took me about an hour)."
