    Dried Out Micron Pen

    Hey all! I bought some micron pens a little while back, and I just discovered that one had dried out on me before I could even use it.

    Has anyone else ever had this problem? What can I do to revitalize my pen?

    whatever could be done, you're probably better off just buying a new one anyhow. what are they, $2? Not too bad

    I've never had that problem, but I remember hearing somewhere that dipping the tip in vinegar will get it going again.
