Seeking a burned out scribe tip

Hello, prep friends!

 

Does anyone have exact specs on the stylus/pins for the CP and Paleotools units? I just purchased a knockoff and this diamond pin that it came with is totally useless. I want to replace it, but have no idea how compatible it will be with anything else.

It has a flat end?!

No, no. Sorry, I was just showing the length of the pin and the mechanical end. It’s got a “diamond” in the tip, which dulled out after 5 minutes of limestone... so... not a great diamond. I knew the pin tip would be garbage and that I would need a better one, just didn’t know what the specs would be on it. I could always have one custom made, but I’d really love it if it were compatible with other tips already on the market. A one-off custom carbide tip would cost me more than the whole unit did.

Does anyone have a shot CP stylus that I could buy or trade for? I really don't care what condition the actual tip is in, it can be totally destroyed, I just want to see if they are compatible with my new scribe before I drop 50$+ on a new one. The stylus in mine appears to be modeled after the CP stylus quite directly, but I just don't know what the dimension on the CP tip are. Unless someone wants to take measurements of one of theirs for me ;) 

 

Thanks!

Are you still looking for an old 9361 stylus? My scribe imploded and I just upgraded to the ME9100.

 

I can send you the old stylus if you need one.

Is it one of the Paleotools ones or just a standard issue CP? Either way I would be interested, just PM me what I owe you, thanks!

@DevonianDigger, it is the stock CP stylus. Just PM me your address and I’ll send it to you. It was going in the trash until I remembered you were looking for one.

Just out of curiousity, isnt the CP compatible with the ME9100 or viseversa?    i hope it works out for you @DevonianDigger

According to Brook (Paleo Tools GM) the ME stylus does not fit the CP front end.

also you want to sharpen the stock CP stylus to work on harder rocks a sharp tip goes a long way.
