    Default Sheaffer Tuckaway

    Hi all,
    I have a brown Sheaffer Tuckaway (non military clip) that advances the lead through a twist mechanism. I've been using it only by front load, is this correct? Also, what size lead would it take? My supply is weaning down.

    Your Tuckaway takes 1.1mm lead and loads from the front. Great pencil.

    Lovely pencil, have one as part of the three piece Tucky set, Pencil, Triumph Vac-Fill, and Stratowriter ballpoint.
    And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet's wings. ~~Yates

    I had the companion touchdown filler but it fell out of my pocket one day and was ran over by a truck before i noticed, I still have the nib as a memento

    Oh no, sorry to hear that. My Tucky set is probably one of my favorite pieces and is my best antique mall hunting score; got the set in the original blue clamshell case for about $25. The pencil needed no work, the FP needed a filler restoration. The ballpoint needs one of the brass widgets so I can put the newer Sheaffer refills in, just haven't gotten around to that yet.
