    Default What size lead? STIK Mechanical Pencil

    I just purchased a STIK mechanical pencil with the patent number 250075. I am hopeful that one of you knows the lead diameter so that I can purchase refills.


    Here is a picture like the one I own.





    Thanks

    I did a search for ‘Stik’ on the Reddit sub r/mechanicalpencils. Most comments on posts there say the leads are likely to be 1.1mm - 1.2mm on these vintage pencils. I’ve copied part of a post regarding Stik leads below. Might be useful to you?

    “Then you'll need some leads to fit. Autopoint, Yard-O-Led, and Retro 51 are the only companies I know of that use this size on current production pencils.

    JetPens ( https://www.jetpens.com/Lead-Size/ct...5fbcfbc64dc408 ) carries the Autopoint leads.

    You can find vintage leads on eBay, and at sites including Pendemonium ( http://www.pendemonium.com/pencilleads.htm ) and Legendary Lead Company ( https://www.legendaryleadcompany.com...%29_leads.html ), among others”.



    Perhaps you could post your query on there? There are some extremely knowledgeable people so someone might be able to help you.

    To determine the lead diameter for your pencil, I recommend checking the product packaging, user manual, or any accompanying documentation that came with the pencil.

    Sadly unlikely to still be around in a pencil that is so old.
