Maintaining Antique Dip Nibs by Aaron W. Hsu[_3_]
Hey all, Does anyone have any recommendations for guides or just plain old advice for what I would need to do to maintain antique or new old stock nibs? I know that I take basic precautions, like making sure that the nibs are cleaned after use, but I was curious if anyone else had any guides...

Parker Unicube ads - but no pens? by Chris Kocsis
How come I can find ads for the Parker Unicube pens, but I never run across an actual pen and its block holder? Are they too common, or are they scarce? Thanks, Chris

Cleaning out ink from rapidographs by jim_and_his_pens
Greetings: A while back I bought a set of old rapidograph pens on eBay. These are the kind that look like fountain pens, but have technical pen nibs in them. They had sat around for some time with ink in them, and now all of the nibs are clotted solid with ink. I could replace the nibs, But I...

Montblanc rollerball cap won't post properly by Charles
A little over six years ago I bought a Montblanc Classic Rollerball #163 (the slim version, in black resin with gold) that I put away and never used until the other day. When I took it out and started to write with it, as soon as the cap, which I had posted, came into contact with my hand just...

Parker roller ball pen adapter? by Why Tea
This is my first post here. I have a Parker roller ball pen. It seems that the refills mostly come in medium, which I don't enjoy using. I could see the fine roller ball refills on the Web, but not in the shops. I'd much prefer using a ball point refill instead. I'm just wondering if there is some...

Nathan Tardif's website? by Dave Garrett
Nathan Tardif used to have a wonderful website displaying a variety of vintage pens for sale. When I tried to bring up the site yesterday for the first time in quite a while (as in, several years), it was gone. Anyone know what happened? Was the site relocated to another domain, or did he just...

Feathers by John B. Egger[_3_]
During our summer vacation, I found a couple of beautiful feathers. One of them is almost certainly a wild turkey's, and the other may be an owl's. So... how do I go about writing with them? I haven't snipped anything off the quill end yet, but I did poke an opened-up paper clip into the open...

I recently purchased a capless and am liking the pen quite a bit. The trouble is that I think I have recieved a bad nib unit. The first ink I tried was a pilot cartridge and within 20 minutes ink was running down the tip of the nib. The leak is coming from where the gold nib connects to the unit...

Vintage Sheaffer Vac-Fil repairs? by Dave Garrett
I have a beautiful carmine-stripe Sheaffer Vac-Fil (plunger) that was restored several years ago before I purchased it. Since then it's seen fairly light use, but unfortunately appears to have developed a leak which I believe to be somewhere in the area where the conical nib is joined to the...

Day to day pen opinions by Jimmy
Hello everyone. Anyone at home here? ;) What do you like every day as a cheap, good fountain pen that doesn't need to be insured, or carried around in cottonwool by a team of hired guards? I was pleasantly surprised by the Sailor 1911 "Profit" 14K range. The medium one, more like a European...

Who is good at Waterman Repairs? by Jay W. Cochrane
Hello all, I recently purchased a Waterman set on Flea Bay. The set consisted of a fountain pen and a mechanical pencil. The fountain pen is beautiful and has a nice nib, but the lever is broken. The barrel looks OK, and the small gold box it sits in are intact, but the end of the lever is...
