We reviewed the A5 Original a couple of weeks ago, a few people commented about the Jotter Pad in the back of the organiser, wishing that is was a normal A5 notepad. The Jotter Pad pages can be punched of course but they are quite narrow.
So can you fit a normal A5 note pad to the Original... yes you can, and here's how to do it.
So looking at the back cover you can see the Jotter Pad fits on to the back cover using a slot in the leather. This slot is about 78 mm in width and it is off-set towards the outer edge of the organiser.
An A5 Notepad is of course 148 mm in width. Here is how to make it fit.
Turn the notepad over and mark the cover with a vertical line 75mm from the edge.
Then cut the backing card with a simple cut along the line, but leave both parts attached to the pad.
Turn the pad over and now slot the outer part of the card in to the slot, being careful to ease the card in to the back pocket.
There you have it, an A5 Notepad in the back of your Original. I'm sure a similar mod will work on the personal size Original. If you decide to use the pad in another A5 with a more conventional slot, just take the card back together with a length of sticky tape.
