The Winners and Old Lead

Posted by Picasa
The two winners of the Pentel S360 Gray Pen set was number 2, B2-Kun and number 6, Marcus. So if you two will send me a email at with a address I will get the pens in the mail. Now for old lead. Both Dave's Mechanical Pencils and Lung Sketching Scrolls have some outstanding posts on the newest item to collect,old lead in their original packaging. Well we also have some old lead down in the supply room. Here was a complete Scripto Lead Cabinet from the 40s to the 60s. This one is closer to the late 50s to early 60s. I have been using and trading some of the lead over the years but there are still 21 boxes of different grade writing lead and 40 boxes of colored lead. All 1.1mm which will fit the Scritpto K780, K770, K760 and the K750 pencils. This case still has the original inserts. The Scripto Lead Cabinet came in two types, one having more variety of color leads. This one in the picture was the NR 2 display with red, blue, green and yellow lead. Add all the old lead you can find to your collection.

While not the first to have one of these pens it is new to the supply room. I never did like caring a Sharpie in my pocket and here is the answer. The Sherpa body will hold Uni-ball Vision, Pilot P-700 V Razor, Papermate Liquid Espresso,and the Sharpie Accent Highlighters which is what I have in mine. The Sherpa comes with the Sharpie in the picture. I think I paid $30.00 bucks for mine. This is a great way to upgrade your highlighter. The Sherpa is on eBay and comes in many different colors. Add one or more to your collection.

New Pentel Cabinet and Give-Away

Posted by Picasa
Here is a new/old Pentel Color Pen counter display case. These color pens are the Pentel S360s. I already had a set of 36 that you can see in the bottom right of the picture. I am not sure how old this case is but it is 25" tall,11"s wide and in great condition. This make five Pentel cabinets in the supply room. This new cabinet does have some interesting colors that I have not seen before. In the standard set of 36 pens there are two different color grays. This cabinet has fifteen shades of gray. I could only find two shades on the US Pentel website. They appear to be for those that need different shades of gray for drawing. Since I can not use that many, I put together two sets of gray(15) for a give-away. Leave a comment by the 23rd of April. I will try and make sure they work. These pens were not stored point down so some are dry. When these pens dry up they are still collectible. US only. Add them all to your collection.

Acco Swingline Stapler

Posted by Picasa
While I was unable to post I spent some time down in the basement of the old supply room and came up with this prize. Here is a 1980s Acco Swingline 221xx Clear Electric Stapler. It appears to be in perfect condition with no cracks. It works on both batteries or electric plug. The red button on top is pushed to open the tray where the staples go. Right below the staple tray is where paper is inserted to be stapled. These working staplers are highly collectible. There are some videos on youtube showing them in action. Add one to your growing collection.

No Pictures Today

This no picture thing has been going on all week. Something at Goggle or Blogger. Whatever it is, it sucks. I did find the new BIC 4 way at Target. This one is updated with a rubber grip and is made in Japan. Since there are no pictures I will list the top five posts since 2009 when I started the blog. Number 1 was Scan Cards, 2nd most looked at post was Parker Jotters, then Lindy Pens, Hallmark Pens and last was School Supplies. Interesting.
