Dear community,

I recently purchased a Mabie Todd L205/47 which I want to restore. The original nib and feed, which I believe would have been a Swan #2, has been replaced with a #1. These are, of course, too small for the section, so the nib does not sit snugly in the section. Can anyone steer me in the right direction to find a replacement nib and feed? The sac I'll need shouldn't be as tricky to locate, but tips are always welcome!

Many thanks in advance,

Gwen

Ah, was that one on ebay last week?

 

I have one of these myself - I love the "mosaic" pattern.  I have some Swan 2 nibs and feeds.  As others here may confirm I do fix a few sick pens here and Mabie Todd is really my "thing" - hence my moniker.

 

Please PM me if this is of interest.

 

best wishes

 

Cob

Thanks a mil, Cob and Empty of Clouds!

I'm excited about the idea of making disparate parts whole again. I will follow up when I return from my travels. I'd love to work with vintage pens more and learn from people like you. There's not much of an interest where I live, I'm afraid, so forums like this make for a modicum of connection.
