I cannot say what you should, or could, do. But that's what I do
whenever I use a pen. I haven't had a problem yet.
Also for ehmm say, ehmmm, say, ehmmm, for 2 months the same needle 4x a
I use a single syringe for an entire vial. I use the same needle for
an entire pen unless it becomes to dull.
I'm not afraid of what "they" say, never met a "they".
In this newsgroup it is often "them" vis a vis "me" or rarely "us."
Just checking out who also do(-es) this, and if that somebody is still
alive and kickin'.
I know, I know, what I am saying is anecdotal and only becomes data when
added to some more anecdotes that agree with mine.
I did this with my first novopen (nr1, yes the very first pen), keeping
the screwed-off-needle in the case, but then it was a very good and
solid case, and the needle had a comfortable tight-fitting place in it.
These pens of now..AFAIK the cases are ehmm, anyway: NOT GOOD. needles
have no good place in these (pen)cases.
I noticed. I replace the two caps that come on the front end of mine,
and put the assemblage into a small ziplock bag.
So now I just keep the needle ON the pentip. Which cant be done with
that Timesulin, as it is a cap, that only works when staying on the
pentip: instead of the needle a must then put the Timesulin on ;(
How and where do you keep your used needle?
I anticipated, see above.
PS even thought of a whetstone, got one in the kitchen for my Chinese
chopper. To make the (new) needle nice and blunt ;-)
If you want blunt needles I'll send you my old ones. :-)
