Sheaffer Button Fill Converter

Sheaffer Button Fill converters were discontinued many years ago. They fit select Imperials, Lady Sheaffers and a few 6XX series pens from the early 1980s. Pens that will accept only this converter which is shorter than the Classic Aerometric Converter will still accept Sheaffer Classic Cartridges.

Sheaffer Slim -Old Sheaffer Skrip Ink Slim Cartridges

Sheaffer Slim Cartridges, sometimes referred to as Sheaffer Cartridge II are no longer in production.  A few Sheaffer fountain pens from the 1980s use Sheaffer Slim Cartridge II refills. These cartridges are longer and slimmer than the regular Classic cartridges. Note the photo shows a slim cartridge next to a classic Sheaffer cartridge.

Sheaffer Slim Cartridge II specs:
Length: 64.5mm
Insertion end: 3.85mm
Barrel end: 6.5mm

Sheaffer Slim Converter

Many slim Targas and Fashion pens will only use a Sheaffer Slim Converter or Sheaffer Slim cartridges. This converter looks very similar to the #99500 Classic Aerometric Converter above, but is slightly longer and slimmer. They do not interchange. We rarely if ever locate Slim converters.

Sheaffer Skrip Converters were very short lived and difficult to find. They work by pulling out the clear plunger end and pumping it several times to fill.

Sheaffer Reminder Clip Ballpoint Pens

Most Sheaffer reminder clip ballpoint pens, the ones where you press the clip to extend the refill and press again to retract the refill take the current production Sheaffer ballpoint refills. Once in awhile there is an early one or two that will require you to pry off the current smooth rounded top piece on the refill and replace with a earlier style winged top.  Eventually, the reminder clip mechanism installed inside the cap will wear out. Replacement of the mechanism requires a special Sheaffer factory tool and special skills as well! The more you click that clip, the more apt it is to eventually fail. Remember - don't click unless you have to!

If you don't have an old refill with the winged top or a spring laying around, we have them available for you:

#SHF-BP-TOP  $2.00

Sheaffer winged ballpoint top piece for Sheaffer Reminder Clip Ballpoint Pens   



Spring for Sheaffer Ballpoint Pens



Brass adapter for Stratowriter ballpoint pens 

Turn your early Sheaffer Stratowriter style ballpoint pen into a working pen again! Early Sheaffer Stratowriter ballpoint pens used a large aluminum tube cartridge that was discontinued in the early 1950s. If your Sheaffer ballpoint has a refill in it that looks like the photo below, you have a Stratowriter.

For a short period of time, Sheaffer made brass adaptors so that the current style BP refills could be used. Those ran out years ago and there was no way to retrofit the older Sheaffer Ballpens with a new refill. We now have newly made solid brass Sheaffer BP widgets so you can turn your older BPs into working pens again.

1. Remove the old aluminum Stratowriter ballpoint refill that looks like the photo above.
2. Screw in the brass widgets
3. Add a spring in end of barrel opposite the point end, you may have to cut to size
4. Insert a current production Sheaffer Ballpoint refill.

It's that simple! It doesn't get much better than using a 1940s vintage ballpoint pen!

Additional notes below on using the Widget in a Sheaffer Stratowriter: The old Sheaffer Sratowriter ballpoint pens can be quirky!  Sometimes you will need to make a minor modification to a current production Sheaffer ballpoint refill. The little rounded top plastic piece on the top of the current Sheaffer ballpoint refill sometimes gets hung up in the mechanism of the Stratowriter inside the clicker button. However, the winged piece on the previous style refills works very well. Just pry off the rounded plastic piece and replace with an older version winged piece.

Casey's Nightmare

Back in 1922, Robert Casey, a Fort Madison inventor, was at home in his second story office and lab busily experimenting on behalf of the W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company. The new invention was Skrip Writing Fluid. Fort Madison legend has it that Casey was quite a character and an eccentric inventor. He conducted his experiments in a small bedroom in his home that had been turned into a lab. The walls were still covered with ink samples in the late 1970s! A friend of mine here in Fort Madison now lives in the Casey home, and I hold him personally responsible for painting over those ink blots resulting in one more little piece of forever lost Sheaffer history.
