Ink Converters


Some old Pilot water feature pencils including the Capless (Vanishing aim) designs take the old Pilot ink cartridges that have been stopped when you look at the 1970s. These old ink cartridges had been reduced and narrower and had smaller open positions. You can in fact put two cartridges inside Capless cartridge holder. We were holding officially designated "Double Spares" by Pilot.

Due to the fact mouth diameter for the old and existing cartridges is different, old design Capless pens require these old cartridges. These cartridges became as uncommon and important as pens themselves. Happily, Pilot has established a special squeeze converter called the CON-W that fits dual extra pens. Unfortunately, they're very difficult to have, and Pilot seems reluctant to offer all of them to simply any person.

I've been making use of a CON-W within my 1965 Capless pen without issues, but recently when I visited refill it I noticed the rubberized sac had detached through the plastic blue opening (perhaps it will be known as a nipple) and had bunched up inside metal tube. And so I took all of it apart (evidently they truly are held and friction and not glue). It will be simple enough to glue the initial Pilot rubber sac towards the blue breast with clear nail polish, but I made the decision to utilize a regular number 12 plastic sac because We have most of them and I never apparently use them usually for their thin dimensions. I really could purchased a number 16 sac, nevertheless the fit ended up being somewhat comfortable, and I thought the function may be hindered. Nevertheless, it might have in all probability worked. A size 14 sac works too, but i did not have any.


The size 12 sac is very effective, and there is even more space for this to enhance and clear on than there was clearly before.

Here are a few tips for people who can not obtain a CON-W converter with their old Pilot pencils. I have additionally included ideas (some that have been provided for me personally) for working with various other manufacturers' converters.

Pilot converter making use of ink sac

The very first simply requires cutting the back end from an empty Pilot "Double Spare" cartridge and gluing in a dimensions 16 silicone polymer or rubber ink sac. The sac will fit snugly in the cartridge, in order to glue down a big section of the sac for much better leak prevention. Glue it set up with a few glue that works well well on plastic and silicone or rubberized. Before starting gluing, you will need to trim the sac to fit your pen.

Naturally, this easy option will work with many different types of cartridges if you discover the right size sac. They're not as efficient as light bulb fillers with a breather tube, and will not refill totally, but they get the work done.

Pilot converter using a Pilot CON-20 converter

The next answer needs today's Pilot CON-20 squeeze type converter that will be an easy task to acquire. Merely cut-off the lip of a clear Pilot "dual Spare" ink cartridge and place it in to the lip of a Pilot squeeze converter. Its a snug fit, but you will still want to glue it in position with some glue that really works really on plastic.

Please be aware this modified converter will not easily fit into all Pilot dual Spare pencils, specifically some Capless (Vanishing Point) models. You must check if your pen barrel is long enough to accomodate a Pilot squeeze converter initially.
