    Default WTB Parker Vacumatic RetroFit Ballpoint

    It is a long shot, but I want to buy a Parker Vacumatic RetroFit Ballpoint click (1st choice) or twist (2nd choice) made by Carl Siedl.

    Carl is a great guy. If he is still making conversions but doesn't have the mechanical pencil to make a ball-point, you might have to provide yours.

    I had a look on Carl's website, even sent him an e-mail, but no reply...

    I thought he is using fountain pen parts for RetroFit pens.
    Anyway, maybe someone has one that will eventually come up for sale.

    The top two were Carl's conversions; the bottom was still a pencil. I think the Duofold is the best looking conversion he makes.
