Sheaffer Pen Repair Kits

We've put together three repair kits for the Sheaffer PFM, Snorkel and Touchdown fountain pens.  The kits include everything you need to restore three of each of these pens.  We're also including detailed instructions on restoration excerpted from Frank Dubiel's book, Complete Guide to Fountain Pen Repair and Restoration.

Save a little cash when you buy these kits instead of purchasing the components individually!

#KIT-PFM $14

Includes 3 #17 latex Pen Sacs, 3 Large O-rings, 3 Large Point Seals and instructions for repairing a Sheaffer PFM fountain pen. 

#KIT-SNRK $14

Includes 3 #14 latex Pen Sacs, 3 Small O-rings, 3 Small Point Seals and instructions for repairing a Sheaffer Snorkel fountain pen.

#KIT-TD $8

Includes 3 #15 Pen Sacs, 3 Small O-rings and instructions for repairing a Sheaffer T.M. Touchdown fountain pen.

Replacement O-rings, Point Seals and Packing Unit Seals for Sheaffer Snorkels, PFMs, Touchdowns and Sheaffer & Eversharp Plunger Filler Fountain Pens

O-rings for pneumatic-fillers (fit into the end of the barrel, making an airtight seal with the plunger), made of long-lasting ethylene-propylene. Ethylene-propylene seals should last at least twice as long as those made of ordinary rubber, which are vulnerable to oxidization, and especially the effects of ozone. Use only with pure silicone grease, keep away from petroleum-based lubricants which you shouldn't use in the first place!

ORING-SM $1 each

Fits Sheaffer Snorkels, most Sheaffer Touchdowns, Sheaffer Imperials

ORING-SM-10 $9

Fits Sheaffer Snorkels, most Sheaffer Touchdowns, Sheaffer Imperials, pack of 10

ORING-LG $1 each

Fits Sheaffer PFMs, Sheaffer 1949 fat first-year Touchdowns and Sheaffer Touchdown Tuckaways

ORING-LG-10 $9

Fits Sheaffer PFMs, Sheaffer 1949 fat first-year Touchdowns and Sheaffer Touchdown Tuckaways, pack of 10

Point seals for Sheaffer Snorkels and PFMs (fit inside nib/section assembly, sealing around the extending filler tube) made of long-lasting ethylene-propylene.

Ethylene-propylene seals should last at least twice as long as those made of ordinary rubber, which are vulnerable to oxidization, and especially the effects of ozone.

Use only with pure silicone grease, keep away from petroleum-based lubricants which you shouldn't use in the first place!

PSEAL-SM $2 each

Fits Sheaffer Snorkels

PSEAL-SM-10 $18

Fits Sheaffer Snorkels, pack of 10

Point Gaskets

Packing unit seal gaskets for plunger-fillers (replace original innards of Sheaffer or Eversharp packing units) made of fluorocarbon rubber for maximum durability and chemical resistance. Fluorocarbon seals are extremely durable, resisting wear & weathering far better than standard synthetic rubber seals. Estimated life span in industrial settings is up to 20 years, versus 2 to 5 years for butadiene.

PGASKET $1 each

Fits Sheaffer and Eversharp plunger fillers

PGASKET-10 $9

Fits Sheaffer and Eversharp plunger fillers, pack of 10

SHEAFFER BALLPOINT WIDGET

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!

WIDGET Brass adapter for Stratowriter ballpoint pens  $10

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.

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   


#SHF-BP-SPRING  $2.00
