Hi has anyone tried to make an eye dropper from a Bic Xpen? The barrel looks really tough. This does also beg the question, why would you want to!
Come to think of it, a Rotring Rivette could work well.

I have, and it works. By works i mean the barrel will hold ink. I don't use it much, but last I checked, it still wrote a month after I last used it, and there was still ink in the barrel. You may need to use an O-ring or silicone grease on the threads to really make sure nothing is getting out.
