It's been a long, long night of drilling out old vacuum-fil packing material. Here's my pile of detritus after I don't even know how many pens. Cheers!

PenBBS 456 Smog, plunger filler prototype. Longer and girthier than 268. Has similarities with the 309 piston filler (unfortunately I don't have one at hand right now for side by side comparison). #acrylic #clear #demonstrator #fountainpen #fpgeeks #pen #penaddict #penbbs #penbbs268 #penbbs456 #plunger #plungerfiller #prototype #P式 #stationery #vacfiller #vacuumfiller #スケレトン #プランジャー吸入式 #プランジャー式 #万年筆 #透明軸

I have been using this PenBBS 268 plunger filler prototype for a few days now. Some aspects seem a bit unfinished, but overall the pen shows promise. Easy to disassemble and clean. Looking forward to see the final version.

Good day, pen friends.

Today I bring you pen number five, this one from a different customer, @gcmehojah: a second generation (~1945) Sheaffer Triumph Statesman.

This is a Vacuum-Fil pen with the distinct second generation striated celluloid section below the nib. I find these very much aesthetically pleasing, and I'm saddened to say I do not yet own a second gen Triumph!

Speaking of striations, the barrel clarity is commendable. The ambered striations paired with the marine green celluloid give an almost Christmas-y contrast to the pen. I'm a big fan.

Note that, while in the pictures there is a bit of tarnish on the clip, I cleaned it up after this photoshoot. I was simply too lazy to break out the lightbox and take new pictures.

Length capped: 125mm
Length uncapped: 109mm
Barrel diameter: 11.5mm

Good day, pen friends.

Today, I bring you pens that are not my own, but belong to @ToLoveLu: an Arnold combo pen, a burgundy Sheaffer Touchdown Tuckaway Statesman, a marine green Sheaffer Balance Petite ringtop, and a very special Sheaffer Triumph Crest. We'll be looking at all four in separate posts, due to the Instagram description character limit.

Lastly, we have our special Sheaffer Triumph Crest. This is an early Crest model, with the white dot located at the tip of the vacuum-fil knob, or blind cap, instead of the 1/10 14k gold filled cap, as was more common on later models, due to the early difficulties in mounting the white dot on metal caps. There's not much terribly special about this pen until you look at the nib. This is an extraordinarily rare example of a flexible Triumph nib; this pen writes line variation starting in the extra-fine range at 0.3mm, and flexing to a stagging 1.5mm. I'm constantly amazed by Sheaffer nibs, and this one is no exception. Smooth, not too wet when not flexing, and able to flex for quite a bit of writing before it railroads, thanks to the many-finned Triumph feed. Well, if I don't stop now, I'll keep talking about this nib for ages, so let's move on: The barrel transparency is pretty decent, ambered but still plenty clear, and the visulated section is still very clear but slightly stained green, giving an odd contrast to the orangish barrel striations. The vacuum-fil plunger is smooth and strong, the pen writes amazingly, and I am so, so, incredibly, insanely, indescribably envious.
Length capped: 130.2mm

Tales from the workbench: Ever have a Sheaffer Triumph nib unscrew from the nib collar? I have. This is one of those times. Typically, this is extremely difficult to set right, as there is very little real estate to grab onto when it happens; barely 1mm of the nib collar protrudes from the section.

I recently read online about a person who had unscrewed their nib collar by whittling down a bamboo chopstick and shoving it in there and turning it. After entirely too much searching, I sourced some appropriate chopsticks, and set to work. It took about thirty seconds. Completely blew my mind! I'll remember this trick for sure.

Thank you, everyone who joined in and hung out for tonight's restoration stream. I had lots of fun, and I hope you did as well. Feel free to drop in again next time and ask as many questions as you can think of! For now, here's the updated lineup of tuckies!

Good day, pen friends.

Today I bring you another customer's pen: a beautiful reverse trim Sheaffer Triumph. Normally, you only find chrome trim on Grey Pearl pens, but Sheaffer did turn a few jet black Triumph pens the chrome trim. These are very uncommon and beautiful to find.

Another interesting feature I noticed during restoration is a short black cylinder which fits over the plunger rod, floating freely along its length. I believe this to be an early attempt at an agitator.

The nib on this pen, I would call a stubby broad. It's nice and juicy with a small sweet spot. The chrome trim is in excellent condition as well, uncommon for pens of this age.

This Triumph is now on its way back to its owner, after far too long of a wait. I hope he enjoys it as much as I did!

Good day, pen friends.

This here is another one of @continuimatt's pens.

As I'm sure many of you know, Sheaffer introduced their Triumph pens in 1942. After World War II ended, Sheaffer redesigned these pens, replacing free long straight barrels with a more streamlined, cigar-like shape. In 1947, Sheaffer introduced their very first steel-capped pen: the Sheaffer Triumph Sentinel DeLuxe.

This pen originally sold for $15 USD, hence the "1500" price mark stamped on the barrel. Furthermore, this pen is a first-year model, evidenced by the brushed stainless cap and white dot on the tip of the blind cap. Post-1947 model Sentinels all had polished stainless caps with vertical lines, and pens turned in 1949 onwards had white dots mounted on the metal caps. And of course, this pen sports the famous two-tone Triumph nib, though unfortunately, the platinum masking is nearly completely worn away.

This pen has been fully restored by myself, and writes with a reasonably smooth extra fine line. It's on its way back to its owner as I type this description.
