Hello all,

             for awhile I've had a double dipless desk set.  I was able to put it together from different sources but for some reason a red taper has eluded me.   I've done a good amount of searching online but wonedered if anyone knew where to look for one.  I am making the assumption that the taper is threaded similarly for dipless pens.

The red tapers or pens with red tapers are not easy to find.  I found this:  http://www.ebay.com/...goAAOSwVRpZn1DZ

 

Not much out there.  It seems there is less available now than a few years ago.

Are you looking for the clear red taper, or the opaque red taper? 

 

I don't have one to sell, just curious. And yeah, they're not easy to find. I have one dipless, clear red taper. It's the same as the clear

Some taper will interchange, others will NOT.

 

What dipless pen do you have; X (short barrel) or XX (long barrel) and is it black or marbled?

 

The taper from the black W desk pen will fit the black X dipless, but not the marbled XX pen.

The taper from the marbled W desk pen will fit the marbled XX pen.

 

And, the taper of the X dipless pen is longer than the tappers of the XX dipless and W desk pens.  So a W taper on a X pen may look slightly odd (short).
