Now after an hour’s pleasant and satisfying effort I have a completely correct - appearance wise, fully functional dark green “Fourth Generation Type J Transitional Push Pencil” that uses .046" lead. It’s no belle of the ball since it does have a few deep teeth marks, but I covered up most of those by judiciously positioning the pocket clip. It now clips firmly to my shirt, and I’ll certainly enjoy carrying it. I inserted just one stick of very soft .046" lead (so it won’t get jammed again), and the lead is so soft that it feels like you’re “painting” the page as you write.
