So I assume you just pull the black part not the grey plastic that joins to the metal.Ok, the tip is easily removed by pulling it out with your finger nails. I'm just out of a chat room with a Surface Support. They asked me some questions about how heavy I'm using the pen and if I'm using any type of screen protector. They want to know all that to improve the tip. They are shipping me a replacement for free. I asked how I can buy a lot of them and they called a Microsoft local store, the manager did not know yet when they will have them on stock.
I'm the guy that pulls the ring on easy open containers and it breaks off without opening then you have to get tools or utensils... as such if I pull the nib it will break off leaving a small portion inside
Once you have it out... is there a bottom to the hole that backs up the nib or is it hollow and the nib is just held in place by a pressure fit. back to my HYPOTHETICAL scenario of the nib breaking off, how deep should I drill to remove the nib stump?
