Autopoint All-American Standard Pencil, Black Barrel, 0.5 mm
Autopoint Twinpoint All American standard sized mechanical pencil has a twist action to advance the lead. The pencil is pre-loaded with one 0.5 mm HB (medium) graphite lead. The plastic barrel is paneled (10 surfaces) providing a comfortable grip. Twist the front section to advance the lead - the lead is manually retracted. Autopoint's patented Grip-Tite point allows you to use the lead almost down to the very end. Check our Refills section for a full assortment of Autopoint leads and erasers. Autopoint leads are recommended as they are shorter than standard leads (1-3/8" in length), but standard 0.5 mm leads can be used if they are snapped in half. Autopoint part number 500-1. Made in USA.
Length: 5.6" (143 mm); Diameter: 0.31" (8 mm); Weight: 0.4 oz. (10 g)
- To advance the leads, hold the tip and twist the barrel clockwise
- To retract the leads, hold the tip and twist the barrel counter-clockwise, then push the lead against a firm surface
- To replace the leads, pull off the tip, unscrew the plunger, insert the lead (from behind) and reassemble
Autopoint's patented Grip-Tite tip expands to hold the lead in place so it can't wobble, jam, or fall out
