I am in need of a hood for a Parker 51 Demi in cocoa.... this would be the thinner diameter Demi, a standard hood will not fit...
The hood on my daughter's pen has a crack.... she loves the pen it was a gift for when she first made Distinguished Honor Roll.

Griz-

Just checked nothing. But if I had one, it would be a gift to your daughter assuming someone would do the pen service as a gift...

hey Old Griz, if it helps you out for the short term, I got a demi hood in black, I will be glad to send your way, until you can find a proper cocoa hood. i think a demi cocoa hood is a tough one. Send my hood back when you find a proper replacement.

Let me know....

also, idd you try "Tom Heath" on the board here?

He's got a part or two laying around

tell him Rick sent you.

Best!
Rick

I just want to interject here.

I'm surprised enough that between Rick, Todd, and Tom there was a pen part that couldn't be found.

Tom H., is there any part you don't have?
It's starting to get weird. :roflmho:
Best,

Well it looks like the part is coming from Tom

Mike, it is rare that I don't have needed parts in my parts bin... but cocoa hoods, especially Demi size are rather uncommon...
Tom has offered me a very good price for a NOS one and I appreciate it...
