I bought a pica for general carpentry use and for about a monthnit was awesome,  then the lead wouldn't advance. I bought another hoping that I had somehow abused or damaged the first one. I got about 6 weeks,  maybe 2 months out of the 2nd one before it wouldn't advance the lead anymore.

No more Pica pencils for me.

That seems odd.. I have had mine for a while on a few different job sites. I wonder if your bending it where do you keep the holster?

I kept the holster in a small front "pencil pocket" in Bjornkladers. I am quite sure I didn't bend anything, but maybe with working in the rain and snow somehow the mechanism got fouled up. It's too bad, I really liked it while it worked.
