I would agree, if I can get them apart non-destructively. The metal cap
on the back end is crimped on (like an old milk bottle cap, but thicker
metal). I may have to cut theat off and make a repalcement. I do not want
to break the glass tube, although it may not be too hard to make a
replacement for that either.

A friend driected me to US patent 4332487. This is clearly not the same
printer, but the principles are the same The ink is indeed conductive,
and is indeed mostly carbon (95%). Various binders are suggested, no
details of shick one is used are given.
I wonder what pencil 'lead' would do here...
