    Default old Wahl Pencil Lead Size?

    Hi Folks.............

    I have probably a pre-1925 Wahl Mottled (duofold looking) MP that looks to take an odd lead size. It is definitely thicker than 0.46/1.1mm?

    Any thoughts?

    I have a Wahl and an Eversharp that seem to like 1.15mm.

    That makes sense since I've seen a few references to Wahl Eversharp using 0.046" (1.168mm) lead.

    I think got mine at JetPens?

    0.075" is approximately 1.9mm. Not super hard to find, it seems.
