  1. Hello, A quick preface: My fascination with pens began with my mother's law office. I would go to work with her, marvel at her beautiful pens, and mischievously play with all the converters I'd find. Now I realize that all those converters were in drawers because it was more convenient to use cartridges, so she cast them aside along with a rather fine collection of antique bottle fillers. Now she's back to the hobby with me, and trying to use her old pens. She cares nothing for the mechanics, so her once magnificent collection now has ruined sacs, dried and plugged feeds, tarnish, damaged nibs, etc. To me, the most beautiful are the sheaffers- I'd like to restore them as a birthday gift. I need help identifying the following pens, the parts I will need, and perhaps where to get these parts. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's what I know/need to know (left to right) 1. Touchdown filler, seems in okay working order, want to open it and clean it. 2. Vacuum filler, apparently a later model, wouldn't fill w/ water 3. Lever filler, unable to open it, sac audibly shattered into pieces- how can I open this pen? 4. Lever filler, already removed broken sac-what size should I get? 5. Vacuum filler, seems ok, would like to open and clean 6. Snorkel- mechanics work, but sac is compromised, what size do I need? THANK YOU!
