Since the common KPD8923 people harvest trackpoints from are pretty much unobtainium in Germany I was looking for an alternative. Broken Thinkpads regularly pop up on Ebay and often go for less than ten bucks. The trackpoints in these are too short to mount them in between keys, though.
Turns out that can be fixed easily using another part from the Thinkpad. :)

I took one of these little "pillars" (technical term, anyone?) and glued it to the the trackpoint.

A way to extend them is to use labret piercing at the good diameter / lenght.
