Hello all,

 

My name is Greg Scott and live just north of Dallas in Denton, Tx. I have been collecting/learning to repair/selling vintage fountain pens for around 10 years with a couple of years off for other stuff. I have gotten back into the hobby and looking forward to the vast information I hope to find on this site.

 

My most recent restore was a 1947 Parker 51, Blue Diamond Vacumatic with a Lusterloy stacked coin cap, which I was able to get working again after a few parts purchases on eBay and a diaphram. I love this pen.

 

I started with Estie's and have quite a few that I use and a few that will hopefully find new homes. On the to-do list are a few Parker Vacs that need to be restored. I'm still in the proccess of acquiring all the tools I need but I've been called a tool maker so I usually can come up with something that works.

 

I also enjoy doing woodworking with hand tools. Also a long time journal writer. I'm kind of an anachronist.

 

That's enough for now. Looking forward to meeting some of you on the board through the forums. And specially those I've watched your videos and have purchased from online.

 

Thanks,

 

Greg

I think you and your experience will prove to be a valuable resource to the membship.  Glad to have ya !

 

I cannot, however, imagine any "other stuff". 

 

You are planning to post a photo of your restored "Blue Diamond" Vac, aren't you ?

Hi Greg!

 

Native Texan welcoming you to FPN - so pleased you decided to join us. I lived most of my life in the Metroplex (Dallas half) but retired about 2 hours drive east on I-30 into the edge of the Piney Woods. Love the peace and quiet here, had my fill of concrete and traffic.

 

We need to hear about your pen activities on a regular basis, you bring experience to the table. WELCOME!
