Good afternoon (here) ladies and gentleman...

 

Okay, so I sprang for this pen on the bay of evilness and I knew it didn't have a clip. To me this isn't a big deal as I'm hoping I will love this pen and use it daily. But, where does one get a clip or can one get a clip for a Waterman 3 and if so, can a complete moron, such as myself do the repair?

 

The pen was cheap as it is (crudely) monogrammed. 

 

Any and all help from this illustrious brain trust is much appreciated!!!!!

So, what's your point? (Mine is a flexible F.)

To a new one, what? Clip? !!!

 

Yes, I'm still interested (tries to disguise herself as "someone else") in finding a clip for this pen...which I'm told has arrived!!!   :bunny01:

English (British) humour I am afraid  :rolleyes:

 

I once purchased a 52 without its clip thinking it would be an easy job finding a replacement part. No such luck, so I sold it clipless.

 

I think the problem is that if someone has one they tend to keep them for a pen that may come to them. I certainly would  :blush:

Good to know. It will still write without a clip. ;)

 

Thanks Force!

Not worth putting any money into that pen, sorry to say.

The celluloid is starting to deteriorate at the top of the cap.

If you do find a clip, labor cost to replace it would run a good five times the pen's purchase price, and more than the cost of getting an intact pen of the same model, fully restored and ready to write.

 

If you want a user, go ahead and use it (though the nib is clearly bent from the photo, with misalignment of the tines, so I don't know how it will write). If you need a clip, best bet is to get a slip-on one.

Well, (bleep)! I'd like to work on straightening the nib, the heck with the cap. It's not bad as is, so fixed might be good!!

Thanks for saving me time and money!! :)
