Schmidt DSM 2006 Pencil Mechanism .7mm, .5mm or .9mm lead
Schmidt DSM 2006 Pencil Mechanism. This is to convert Parker style ballpoint pens to a pencil. Same as the DSM 2007, except with a plastic housing
Please choose 0.9mm, 0.7mm or 0.5mm leads
Installing the pencil mechanism may require some modification of the pen. ExoticBlanks will assist you, but we do not give step-by-step instructions and we are not completely familiar with every pen body known to exist. You will need to have SOME mechanical aptitude and be able to deduce how to modify the pen you are trying to convert. This IS a simple "trade-out" for the pen refill in the Perfect Fit series, which we also offer.
The .9mm requires substantial modification of most pens. Only purchase it if you have a plan on how to make it function. (Ed)
The lead is advanced by the up-down motion of the twist mechanism.
It contacts the plunger of the pencil mechanism and that allows the lead to advance. Then, by turning the twist mechanism to the retracted position it relieves the pressure on the plunger and locks the pencil lead in place.
In short no. The DSM is a refill for pencil kits. It needs a click (plunger)-type mechanism in order to activate and advance the lead. It will not work in a rollerball, which is designed to be a capped pen (ie no plunger). These are two completely different types of kits, the refills are not interchangeable.
For the Metro Rollerball (AKA Virage Rollerball - which is the OEM name), you will need a Schmidt 888, 5888 or similar ink refill.
I Hope that helps,
The black cap on the back of the mechanism is removed and the replacement lead is inserted there.
