Does anyone know where these can be purchased? Do they still even make them?

Or if they are not available anymore, what is a good substitute to use?

They are the ones that look like a pencil with a small brush on the other end. I am lost without them, as they could be sharpened to a sharp point for small areas.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Have you checked at Staples or Office Depot?

I've checked in all the stores that are around me - nothing. Staples is not around where I live that I know of.

I have not seen these in the stores in ages....the closest thing I can think of to them would be an electric eraser. There are different types of erasers to put in the electric ones, and they are thin at least- not as pointed as the old typewriter ones though....have you checked ebay? pehaps someone has a warehouse where they found a box of them lying around....

Ain't it grand! :lol: I bought a 1930s typewriter last year and I just had to have one of these erasers (although the really old-fashioned ones that had the circular eraser that revolved would have been more authentic for the period...they looked like this: http://www.nashersculpturecenter.org/object.aspx?ObjectID=123&content=Bibliography) to complement it.

Thanks! I had given up on ever finding these. I decided they no longer made them.

Faber-Castell also makes them in various varieties, with or without the brush on the end, with two different erasers (those pencils are sharpened on both ends) or just one... They should be available in art supply stores too.
