To convert the Preppy to an eyedropper, see Brian Goulet’s
Making a Platinum Preppy an Eyedropper Pen” on YouTube. Elizabeth at JetPens says, “The O-ring can be purchased at any hardware store. They should have a 1/16″ thickness, with an outside diameter of 3/8” and inside diameter of 1/4 inch, and are sometimes referred to as #5 O-rings.

Read “Eyedropper Fountain Pen Pros and Cons,” a warning about possible pitfalls.

The Preppy uses a proprietary ink cartridge so the international cartridges won’t fit.

Update 1/5/16: J. Edmiston: “You are right about the Platinum Preppy. If you want more of these eyedropper pens then just buy the Platinum Preppy 3 pack for about $10 and get some #5 orings and some silicone grease. I carry these around because for a few bucks each I can afford to lose a few” (10/11/10, Amazon customer review). Added: “I got both at the hardware store, plumbing dept. Get the 100% silicone grease.”
