Hey everyone! My first post on the forums. I've been lurking for a while, though :)


In the beginning of November I purchased a red Esterbrook SJ on ebay. It's my first FP and I really do love it. However, I've noticed over time that hairline cracks are beginning to form at the section, and ink sometimes leaks from them. I know the pen is old and I treat it delicately, so I don't think I'm at particular fault for their formation. I don't rest my fingers near the section when writing now in fear of making them worse, but I really need to get this fixed before the cracks become worse and I'm out of my main writing instrument. 


What I'd really like is a replacement section, does anybody out there have one available or know where I can find one? I hope I made this post in the right place... please excuse me for being a newbie!


Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Contact either FPNer Farmboy or Anderson pens.


It would be optimal to send your pen to them and have them select a section that fits it best.


Also don't ever pull a section Without a nib in it.
