Insulin Pen deconstruction disassembly How to hack

How to use a pen <== these links are not produced by me

I am fascinated  by these pens and how intricate they are.  They cost ~$70 retail and about $1 when paid for by insurance..... which is surely a scam of some sort.  I wanted to be able to reuse these pens .... reload them with insulin or black widow venom ( that last part is satire ) .

So far I have not had a brilliant idea of how to use these individual parts or how to refill the pen.

plastic melts very easily.  Ask me how I know.  I was using a small grinder.  Then I started using an Xacto blade.

There was a blemish here that I thought might pin some of the parts together , so I filed it.
