It WORKS! As an mechanical engineer, I was a bit skeptical how effective the
spinning lead would work, but even with light (for me -admittedly a hard writer)
touches the lead does turn. The little window, as you could guess, is to show
that its working properly. As necessary for drawing schematics I was used to
turning my pencil manually in my hand - this pencil will eliminate any need for
that now. The one drawback I do see is that the threads holding the nib section
to the body is plastic - not that plastic is bad, I just expected the entire
pencil to be metal. I cross-shopped it against a Rotring 600 (ignored the 500
due to its plastic body) and I although I can't honestly compare it, I am NOT
second guessing my choice.
great pencil at a great price.
