Does anyone know how to stop these damn things.
All my other pens write what I want, then stop. When I use a "51" they seem to go writing and writing & I find myself with several pages instead of a quick note.
I've downloaded the original patents and cannot find a reference to a brake anywhere.

One thing that you may want to try is to just dip the pen, rather than filling it with ink. Even a runaway pen will have to stop when the ink runs out...

Good luck! :)

I guess I was wrong... I was going to suggest that the brake was NOT a hardware device but was a software routine in the pen's controller. Learn something every day ;)
