    That came out quite well for a first attempt didn't it., not quite round but workable.

    Another option I just thought of is find a hole punch used for Leather of the correct size , say 2 or 3mm and punch a disk out of white plastic sheet of the correct thickness and glue that in place.

    PS I don't have a thing for plastic sheet and rod, I just have loads of it from my other hobbies and like to find extra uses

    If I could find a small enough hole punch I might be able to adjust the size perfectly, but as it was I didn't wish to damage the gold plating on the edges of the clip.

    I got a set of small hole punches from a Chinese seller on eBay, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4 & 5 mm plus a standard set that goes from 3 to 12 mm, they are also useful for making piston washers and seals, using the larger ones to cut the washers OD then a small one for the center hole.

    These are the small ones https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F291521108654

    The larger set are available from loads of sellers

    Great work Chrissie! I think that's quite acceptable.

    Thanks Deb Well one thing is for sure: It's better than it was. Also, at least it won't drop out altogether. It moved around all over the place before I fixed it. Now there isn't much that would get it out.
    I tried a bit more of an edge trim and another polish and you have to get the loupe out to see it's not normal.

    I think that even a very knowledgeable Sheaffer enthusiast would pass over that without a second glance, just accepting it as the original white dot.
