I bought 2 at Pearl Paint in NYC 5 or 6 years ago. Unfortunately, I've lost the pointers (end caps) from both. I went by Pearl this morning, and a salesperson told me they no longer carry them. Still, you might want to call the store in Boston to see if they have any old stock. I think I'll check the one in NJ this weekend. Worst case scenario, I found this St. Paul MN online store that sells them for $15.00 which should be a reasonible price even with shipping.http://www.wetpaintart.com/ecommcaran2.asp
P.S. If you see any shops that sell parts let me know. I'd really like to replace those two pointers.
Hi,Regarding the Caran d'Ache Fixpencil with 2 mm lead:The best price seems to be at swissmade.com, especially if you order several in order to defray postage cost. Cost per pen $10.30 US, plus shipping.Also, "inoshishi" sells fixpencils on EBay. The one most recently auctioned went for about $20 US plus shipping.If you google "fixpencil" you'll find a place that sells them at ten for $170 US + shipping.Suggestion: Buy only the black ones because the matte finish makes for a good grip. Also, the Fixpencil 22 is better than the Fixpencil 77 in this regard. I have several of both, but use the 22's th most.
Recently got some Fixpencil 2 mm and 3 mm lead holders from Wet Paint Art (only place I was able to find that carried the 3mm and even the 4 mm size Fixpencils of the Caran D'ache Museum line in the USA). They recently revamped their website, so the above link no longer works. Happy pencil hunting!http://www.wetpaintart.com/thumbnail.asp?cid=122
You can get 3mm leads at Laguna Art Supply 949 494 8867
