    Try adding a little liquid soap to the ink mixture.

    "Tips for (fixing) my super(-dried-out) lens (marking pad) on my Marco (lensmeter)"

    I've microwaved this thing (why?) and pummed (no idea) it full of replacement ink. Still, I get (only) medial (towards the nose) dots (instead of all three).

    I think that is what they were going for with pummed.

    I think he is trying to say that the dots are to light. It seems typing errors are being spell checked to the wrong words.

    Get these and you won't have to deal with the ink again.
