I was wondering how to install  a new bladder in 1940's Waterman's, where does one obtain one?

You'll find information on sizing for a Waterman here:

Installing is a matter of carefully removing the old sac and adhesive (gentle scraping; no chemicals!), cutting the new sac to the correct length, and gluing it in place with shellac.

If you can hold off until I get my new repair lots in this coming week, I'll do a video how to restore a basic lever filler video for you.

Contact Giovanni at tryphon.it & get your general repair supplies. Martin at woodbin http://www.woodbin.ca/ has all of the sacs you'll ever need.

I have dealt with both of these guys for a decade plus & have never once been let down.

Generally speaking a 40's waterman will most often take a #16 size sac, a BCHR 56 and up take a #18. (fwiw, #16's are the most common size sac used in vintage pens)

if you can shoot a pic of your pen it'll give me a lot better idea what model you have. I have several watermans on the way in so chances are decent I may have the same pen for the how to video.

Groovy, I'm glad it made it in ok. Were you able to understand my cheezy little how to diagram?
