I just won an auction for a nice vintage Easterbrook J. Before I pay for it I would like some advice from some more experienced people. I know nothing about replacing ink sacs and such so would buying this pen be a good idea? Are vintage ink sacs cheap? Are they easy to replace? The seller says he has never used it.

Here ia a link to the pen:

Since you won the auction, you're now under obligation to pay for it!

I understand your hesitance because the seller said nothing about whether or not it has or needs a new sac but the time for those questions were before the auction was over. Pay for it and enjoy it. If it works as it is you are fine but if it needs work you can learn how to restore pens yourself (it is said that Esties are among the easiest to restore by the owner) or you can avail yourself of the services of the many fine pen restorers availbe today.

 

Enjoy your ne acquisition!

Grace and Peace are already yours because God is the Creator of all of life and Jesus Christ the Redeemer of each and every life.

Hopefully there is no issue with the clip as the seller managed to hide it in every pic.

 

That is a horrible listing. I would not have bid without asking and getting answered several questions.

You won the auction so you have to pay, no way around that now, ask these questions before the auction closes.

 

Esterbrook sacs are cheap and easy to replace, check out the repair subforum and you'll see very extensive guides to fixing it up. I do recommend getting a decent heatgun (you'll see why when you read the instructions) you can use a hairdryer but it's fraught and you're likely to burn out your hairdryer.
