Aloha, from the sunny State of Hawaii. I recently joined the network and at the suggestion of another member, who was responding to my introduction, he recommended that I post my questions on this forum.
I inherited from my grandfather a 1923 Wahl small gold filled fountain pen. Attached is a photo of the pen. I plan to restore the pen and pass it on to my son in the future. The nib will need to be adjusted and the sac will have to be replaced. However, as you can see on the attached photo, the ink lever is missing.
Questions: In my introduction I posted an inquiry as to where I could buy a lever which could be used in my pen. The replies included a suggestion that I ask a professional restorer to out source a lever. The other question that I posted in the other forum was whether another lever from either a different Wahl pen and/or a lever from a different brand fountain pen can be used and/or adapted to fit my pen.
I could not find much information on this pen on the internet on this interesting "demi" fountain pen . I would appreciate receiving the names and phone numbers of any professional restorers that have prior experience servicing these Wahl vintage fountain pens.
As they say in the beautiful islands of Hawaii, "Mahalo" (thank you) for your help. Fernando.
