Hi, everybody.

I own a 1904 Waterman pump fill pen and a 1920's Dunn pen.

Both are pump filling pens and seem to fill in the same way, by pumping them several times.

I wander if someone knows what is in the essentially different in their filling mechanism.

All I know is the Waterman's is apparently impossible to repair--it'd be interesting to know why that is as well.
