  1. I am basically looking for a broken normal and TM Sheaffer snorkel barrel but it seems all I ever find are ones in new condition and cost nearly as much as buying the whole pen.
  2. Hi all, I have a Sheaffer Snorkel that was lovely and my favourite writer. Unfortunately, it started to leak a little, then a lot. I tried to empty out the ink, figuring that then I could send it somewhere for repairs, or just take the next step. What I'm wondering now is whether or not it is possible for me to safely take apart the pen without owning any specialty tools to do so. I haven't fiddled with it before, so I'm a bit nervous. I'm wondering if it's a matter of the sac springing a leak or something. (It started out as a leak through the slit, then became a major leak through s

    Sheaffer Valiant Snokel In Need Of Repair

    The plastic threading on my Valiant where the nib screws on is stripped, which I supposed is expected of a pen of this age. Does anyone know where I could find a better conditiond part for this pen? http://i719.photobucket.com/albums/ww191/ParkerDeanPeterson/WP_20140122_0031.jpg

    What About The Sheaffer Snorkel?

    Still on my quest for finding the awesome workhorse...a pretty horse who can do tricks too hehe. I always look for a pen that you can get fine lines when needed (usually by writing with it 'upside down'), as this comes in handy for writing small letters, writing on cheap paper, or just sketching. The Snorkel has captivated my eye because it has this beautiful upturned conical nib, and has a interesting filling system. However, when it comes to recommended pens for workhorse candidates, I see many responses being the Lamy 2000, Namiki Falcon, Lamy Safari, etc. I've had these before, and I have
  5. I see lots of confused sellers who advertise Tip-Dip pens (Cadet and Craftsman) as Snorkels and rarely even the other way around (real Snorkels as Tip-Dips). Now I understand why this always happens. The Sheaffer instruction sheet combines both names on it because the filling procedure is similar and the sellers think the sheet refers to a single pen. I wonder why Sheaffer didn't just split the instructions in two and give the Tip-Dip and Snorkel customers their own sheet. Of course, they didn't realize the trouble they'd cause on Ebay 50-60 years later... http://i44.tinypic.com/2poz8t0.jp
  6. Dear all, I've recently remember how much of a engineering marvel the Sheaffer snorkel is. After finding my pen I noticed how the gold plating on the cap, both on the clip and wide cap ring was fading considerably to a brass like finish. Would anyone know how to restore the finish of the gold back to its original luster? Thanks, Badger

    Where To Buy Sheaffer Snorkel

    Does anyone know a reliable place to buy a sheaffer snorkel?
  8. I just received a restored Sheaffer Snorkel from ebay today, it has a new sac, point seal, o-ring, etc. The only problem is that the snorkel has hardened ink residue in (roughly) the first few millimeters. This hampens the amount of ink that is able to be drawn up into the sac to about .5 mL, if even. I have attempted soaking the snorkel in goo-gone for around ten minutes, but that did little to help. What should I try next? --Tadeusz

    Australian Statesman

    I was cleaning my Statesman when I noticed that the feed had wandered off centre compared to the nib. I decided to disassemble to realign this and give the pen a thorough cleaning at the same time. The feed is conveniently fitted with a screwdriver slot at the barrel end to help align this to the nib when it is tightened onto the threaded section. There were no signs of locking adhesive at the threads or the barrel, so I am assuming that this is not required and hand tightening and feed friction are sufficient to avoid any problems.

    Looking For Some History

    This is a first post, story, and request for assistance all in one. To begin I would like to say hi to all in this wonderful community. I have followed for a while and just made an account to share this story and ask for help. I have used nothing but fountain pens for writing for almost three years now (ever since I started college), and can't imagine going back to anything else. Though up to this point I have owned only modern pens, including a Waterman's Harmonie, a TWSBI 540, and, my favorite, a full sized Sailor 1911. This is where the story begins. My grandfather has recently passed a
