Picture of pen out of ink put a laser in it
My favorite pen broke and I tend to think out of the box so,it now wrights with light.

First i have a back ground in lasers so i will dispense some wisdom that is not conventional, it comes from me actually questioning my laser professor in college.

i will show you how to turn a your favorite pen into a burning laser using recycled parts.

i an not the best at spelling so if you want to leave a comment i will try to fix it in a speedy manor.

Might want to fix your spelling on that second item: "a broken mechanical penile" Ouch! ;)
Mine is neither broken nor mechanical... although I'm not necessarily against the idea of a mechanical penile.

You might actually want to fix the ALL of the spelling in the whole Instructable. I have a hard time believing that a college student could spell so many words wrong in one place. Try using the Firefox browser. It will underline all of your spelling mistakes in red. then you can make the appropriate corrections.
