    Wouldn't it be easier to use an ink pin and take out the spring...

    Hey this is really cool, but I would recommend using a clamp to hold the pencil when you're drilling into it. kinda dangerous if the bit would slip or you'd drill through the pencil. I mean it's definitely not a necessity but, it would make the project a bit more safe.
