These traditional latex ink sacs are for repairing and restoring most vintage Lever Filling and Button Filling fountain Pens. They are made from a mould dipped in liquid latex several times. They are cured, dried and dusted with french chalk ready for use.
I have chosen a Green pigment to colour these sacs to identify them as a product of Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd. The Green colour does not affect their performance or life cycle in any way.
These sacs are hand made using traditional methods. Some slight variations in finish and shape are perfectly normal.
All the sacs are a minimum of 75mm long, simply cut them to size to suit the barrel length of your pen.
Fix them in place with Shellac. 10ml Bottles of Shellac are available individually or as part of a kit.
To select the correct size measure the diameter of the nipple on the section of your pen. Also measure the usable inside diameter of the barrel, taking account of the pressure bar.
Then use the size guide below to choose the right sac for your pen:-
Size 14: OD = 5.56mm, Nipple Diameter 4.6 to 5.0mm. Barrel diameter >6.5mm Size 15: OD = 5.95mm, Nipple Diameter 5.0 to 5.4mm. Barrel diameter >7.0mm Size 16: OD = 6.35mm, Nipple Diameter 5.4 to 5.8mm. Barrel diameter >7.5mm Size 17: OD = 6.75mm, Nipple Diameter 5.8 to 6.2mm. Barrel diameter >8.0mm Size 18: OD = 7.41mm, Nipple Diameter 6.2 to 6.8mm. Barrel diameter >8.5mm Size 19: OD = 7.54mm, Nipple Diameter 6.8 to 7.2mm.

If there is a conflict, use the sac which will fit the barrel most comfortably.
