  1. I'm asking this question not out of need, but just out of curiosity. What would be an equivalent to an Eagle #314 draughting pencil? I've been going through How to Draw What You See, by Rudy De Reyna, trying to get better at drawing what I see. At one point, in a chapter on light and shade, he suggests getting a pack of Eagle #314 draughting (drafting) pencils. The book was first published in 1970, and although the instruction is timeless, some of its assumptions are dated. For example, he says that if there are no stores in your town that carry artist's supplies, then any pencil with a soft dark lead will do. Shopping pre-Internet, those were the days. I'll add that he suggests getting a mail order catalog from the art supply store in the large city nearest you. I have plenty of good pencils for the purpose, such as a number of Tombow and Mitsubishi 2B wood pencils, and some darker grades than that. For mechanical pencils I have .5 mm refills in 4B, and .7 and .9 mm in 2B. Still, I'm curious what the equivalent of an Eagle #314 would be. That particular kind seems no longer to be available. I see that there is a General's G314 draughting pencil available. Not sure what the lead grade is, but it looks like a thick soft one. Any ideas? What is actually closest to what an Eagle #314 would have been?

    http://imageshack.us/a/img203/3228/vj55.jpg (Mont Blanc 264 - OBB ..... Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris) Hi Line, there is the Sailor King Eagle nib. Unfortunately I used a completely inadequate paper coated inkjet paper and drawed on the wrong uncoated side, so it feathered like crazy. Be patient, this is my second drawing since 20 years
  3. One Eagle eyedropper and one Franklin plunger (piston?) filler with very little discoloration. The other is a Parker Victory I'm working on.
  4. Hello for the THIRD time, o mighty experts on fountain pens Today, in my newbie buying frenzy, I spent $8.00 on this Epenco lever filler. It's DEFINITELY a gold plated nib The ink sac came out in 1 piece (well, two if you include the "collar" attached to the nib/feed section). The clip has "EPENCO" on it (along with some corrosion), and the band on the cap is faceted (kind of cool! Also a little corrosion). Lever is gold plated, also with a little corrosion. I really like the color and condition of the celluloid body, which is why I purchased it. The nib is losing some of it's gold plating and is stamped "EPENCO" over "NEW YORK" over "US PATS" over "2054306" and "25054307" over "MADE IN USA" I have only two questions for this one. Question #1: Any idea how to remove the "collar" of the old in sac shellaced into place on the nib/feed section? Question #2: What's the best way to determine the sac size for this one? The old sack is as hard as a rock, and I'd like to keep this pen as a writer.
  5. Hi! I've recently found a box of vintage Eagle Pencil Co. Silversteel Pen nibs (E11). In excellent condition, in their original box. There are about 129 nibs in the box. Can someone please help me figure out how much they are worth and where I would be able to sell them? Thank you very much
