    Replacement nibs for Bamboo fun pen - UK

    Ok I've had my bamboo fun for about an hour and whilst the pen nib is looking ok I can see that its going to wear out after some reasonable use.

    i got some replacements in the box but wonder where people based in the UK order their replacements from?

    thanks
    Stephen

    Hi Stephen,

    Did you get a few spares to start with?

    Usually 3 and a minimalist tweezer device in a tiny bag?

    Warehouse Express do them for 8 for 5.

    Thanks Phil,
    Yeah I got 3 spares and a "tweezer" in the box. I'm not likely to run out anytime soon but I'd prefer to have a draw full of the things.

    cheers

    re replacement nibs

    I have the same problem.....but I have had my tablet for about 5 years. Wacom does not ship out of the USA. For a long time the stores in Northern Ontario did not carry the Wacom products, now they sell the tablets, but no replacement parts.....I am good for a little while but then I dont know. I cant understand how a dealer can sell the tablets, but no accessories

    I have the Bamboo One (bought it through Apple) but there are no spare nibs, nor tweezers, in the box. Is that right?

    You're welcome. I was as ticked off as you seemed to be when I found out that Wacom US/Canada only ships in the US. I wrote them a nasty email and the guy told me about coolgraphicstuff.com who ship internationally.

    Cheers

    Doug
