    Default Hello from Orlando!

    Figured I better stop by and say hi. Have been hitting the threads here and so much great information. A lot of great information. My first love is the clutch pencils followed by the mechanical pencils. Basic drafting in high school had me hooked! I like fountain pens but just not the way I do pencils. Have a great day.
    0.5mm vs 0.7mm graphite sizes is much like 9mm vs 45acp...they both work if you know what you are doing. - me

    Looking for Caran d'Ache Type 55 2mm set and Rotation .7 pencils.

    Welcome Recently, I was on the search for a nice vintage mechanical pencil for my sister's birthday. I know nothing about them. I settled on a pretty Superite, even though I think it takes a smaller lead than 1.1mm.

    Thank you all. Want to post some photos of my favorite ones but the desk top has a virus so until I resolve that issue it is staying off. Again thanks for the welcome!

    I can't wait either. I have some the 1920's or 30's L &C Hardtmuth from N.J.
