Making a stylus from the bamboo in my yard is probably not going to work

I have a Bamboo tablet from a few years ago that Wacom no longer makes. I lost the stylus. Perhaps my google-fu is failing me, but it seems that a stylus that will work this is very hard to find. And when I can find it, it's $30 - and for not much more I can just get a used version of a newer pen/tablet but I don't want to buy a new one yet.

But then I'd have this tablet that has no stylus and I don't want to get rid of perfectly good hardware. Can anyone help me find a stylus that will work with this tablet for cheaper than $30? Maybe I'm missing something.
Tablet is model MTE-450a.
The pen for is it the E-150 but apparently the E-155 will work also.
I'm not a digital artist by any means but I'm starting to get into designing more and wanted to use this for a bit to see if it is useful before I get a fancier one. I had bought it a whie back to just use a mouse for a job where the ergonomics were horrific, so I've never used it for anything other than that, hence why I want to try out that side of it before spending more money on a new gadget.
