Found a bunch of replacement stylii for the HP Jornada (6xx/7xx) in my treasure chest. They are one-piece hard plastic without the spring mechanism as in the original design. There are 9 of these in total. Not sure who made them.



There are some scratch marks around the middle part of the barrel, but they all look fine otherwise.



Just want to do something to give back to the community. If you need a spare stylus or a replacement, just let me know. I can send it to you free, and you just need to pay for the postage (should be very cheap for a small lightweight object like this).

No one interested, or afraid of scam from a newcomer?
In fact I didn't buy them specifically (they came with so many other stuff in a huge lot) and I'm not planning to make a profit out of these. I think I won't sell them anytime soon. They will just be here for anyone who needs a replacement.

It's a very generous offer. I personally already have spare Jornada styli for my 690 and 728. Have patience, though - I'm sure there are others who can use them.

If you're struggling to find people to take them, I'd be interested in borrowing one to model it in CAD - I've had the idea for a while that it would be handy to be able to 3D print replacement ones. I could then pass it on to another member of this site. I'd put me at the back of the queue though, I don't own a Jornada so I wouldn't want to deprive someone who's going to properly use it.

Thanks, robertojones. I can send you one as your CAD sample (my skills are not up to that yet). But would this cause any infringement issue here?

Let HP come and complain. Something tells me they won't.

Seriously, though - considering that there are already aftermarket styli for nearly every handheld device known to mankind, I doubt it'll be a problem.

Unless hp had a patent on it that they were enforcing, it's a free dinner

Even if they did, it would've expired by now.

Thanks everyone, I have to admit I'd not even thought of that! But good to know I'm unlikely to get anyone in trouble doing this. I'm quite amused by the idea of someone at HP getting upset by me 3D printing a few styluses (styli?) though - "This guy's trying to take the replacement Jornada stylus market from us! Take him down!"

If I manage to produce anything usable I'll send them out for postage cost, like hpcboy's doing here. I think the CAD model will be the most useful part of this endeavour though.

hpcboy - I'll PM you to make the necessary arrangements then. Thank you!

I've just wrapped and packaged the stylus for Rob (8 left now). It should be on its way either this afternoon or Monday morning.

Learned a new small trick today. A simple rubber eraser can do something good about minor scratches on plastic surface. Now the stylii all look a bit better now.

Thanks to Rob for his CAD work, here is a test print of the 3D model.

The main body prints okay, but the clip is a bit too thin and can be made thicker (2x or 3x).

From top to bottom: Original stylus, replacement stylus, 3D print
