Usus Vintage Mechanical Pencil...


Recommended Posts

Bought this German USUS mechanical 4 colour pencil. Its a twist action pencil and is in pretty good working condition. The balance of the pencil is nice and the build is sturdy. Apart from these very general reflections the internet is not throwing up sufficient information about USUS. Desperately want to know its lead diameter (1.1 mm?) and where can I buy colour leads? Also how to clean broken leads from the holders which are quite narrow.

Thanks in advance...post-115177-0-69397600-1501402449_thumb.jpgpost-115177-0-25360000-1501402464_thumb.jpgpost-115177-0-35491200-1501402484_thumb.jpgpost-115177-0-47967400-1501402504_thumb.jpgpost-115177-0-77715000-1501402517_thumb.jpgpost-115177-0-05644500-1501402528_thumb.jpgpost-115177-0-81445700-1501402543_thumb.jpg

Nice pencil!


If it uses 1.1mm lead you may have luck with AutoPoint pencil lead. Comes in blue/red/black if memory serves me right.

This site sells the is quite a good resource for these type of pencils, and he sells leads too.


Never dealt with him before though... And I don't know if he's still active or not.


The Autopoint leads come in green as well.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
