I found this at walmart the other day and thought it would be a good starter for a pen.

Pros:
Pen shape
Pocket Clip
Aluminum case
easly modded

Cons:
un modded its a push button at the end of the pen.


The internals do allow for a momentary pushbutton switch to be easly added. Some minor case modding would be required to adapt for a side case push button.

What I was thinking of doing was to take and old laser pointer I have and steal the rubber push button and then drilling a hole in the side of the case where the hole is on the internal component and adapting a side push button switch.

I'll take some pics soon of the pen and internals.

what do you guys think?
