Another ScanNCut user kindly shared the following tip with me – and I’m sharing it here with her permission. Thank you Micky!
“I refill my foil glue pens, all you need is the zig 2way glue and a clean ink syringe, the clear plug in the pen barrel is just a silicone substance which can be removed just use a syringe to suck it out and replace after filling your pen 😬 you get access to the glue pen barrel the same way you would remove the ink barrel from a biro pen. 👍”
Thanks to Micky’s inspiration, I realised there was a super quick and easy way to refill my Brother glue pen – both my and Micky’s method uses the original Brother pen barrel – so you can still easily see what glue level number your pen is at.
Here’s my solution – refilling the Brother barrel using a Sakura Quickie Glue pen which as I have explained in a previous blog post is *exactly the same pen* as the Brother one, albeit for the branding and the pen lids.
You don’t have to do this, you can just draw matching glue level lines on the Quickie Glue pen. I wanted to demonstrate how quick and easy it is to do!
