I have pm'd both mods twice now - the first around Dec. 15th, then Brian Anderson again yesterday and Gerry today. They must be away, maybe not receiving their emails or too busy. It's getting a bit discouraging because this is a great resource for everyone and I'm really not sure why they aren't responding, other then for sometimes life get's in the way.

Edit spelling goof.

I saw this great post sinking into the mass of data and saved it onto my PC, as a document on the desktop.

I have been away for three weeks taking care of my mother who fell and suffered a broken hip.

The article will be stickied...

Gerry, I sincerely hope all is well with your mom and that she is recovering and getting her mobility back. Life sure has a way of smacking us upside the head when we least expect it. I hope that you also are breathing a little easier now - that's an awful scare for anyone to have gone through, especially when it's one of your folks.

Thank you so much for making this a sticky article. Very much appreciated.

Yes, she is doing as well as can be expected. People heal slowly at 93 so it will be some time before she's up and around like usual. It was pretty frightening at first though.

All your positive thoughts and good wishes are appreciated.

Warm regards,

Gerry

This really is an excellent index that I'm sure took a lot of time to comprise.

 

Thanks maynes and to our Mods for pinning it.  :thumbup:

Anderson's Pens has a very good selection of Estie nibs for, IMO, reasonable prices. And there's always eBay.

Don't be discouraged, I have never received a PM, also, been gone to the Philly show and just got back late Monday night. I'll look into this once I have settled down later this week.

Edit: I see Gerry took care of it. Thanks Gerry!

Is there any guide for repairing the plunger-fill Safari handy?

Hello,

I was pretty excited yesterday to find an SJ in cobalt blue at a flea market.  It needs some work and I want to do it myself. I am looking to find a jewel cap & clip for a SJ cobalt blue, it is a screw type cap. The sac needs to be replaced and I was wanting to know how to determine what size sac is needed? I have seen a few different numbered sac's and want to make sure I buy the correct one.  I also have a hairline crack in the body of the pen and wanted to know the best glue to use on it?

 

Thank you in advance. 

D

Size 16.  This will work on practically all Esterbrook.  You can put an 18 in a Dollar pen, but even those will fit a 16.

Thank you!  Now I just need to keep an eye out for a jewel cap & clip!

Appreciate the response.
