There's a nib in case that needs repair and tuning, and my understanding is that Oxonian is a trusted and competent nib tuner. Would someone please PM me his contact information?

 

Thanks in advance,

PM sent


How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed. Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. One to ignore who uses 'I' four times in each post. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly. Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

Eric Wilson aka eckiethump on FPN (pen repair) is at http://eckiethump.webs.com. UK

John Sorowka aka Oxonian on FPN (pen repair, nib work)

The website link is frozen, also John Sorowka would prefer that his email address is not for public circulation, in fact I dont think that anyones email address should be made public without their express permission

Too late for that, and it wasn't frozen when I looked. It is out there and available on a Google search on Fountain Pen Network Philippines

You could edit your post.

 

I am sure that Oxonian will be very grateful for publicising his email address, he has specifically said that he does not want this to happen.

 

This has been reported, I will leave it to the mods to decide what is right and what is wrong.

That FPN Phillippines thread has been on the Internet since 2013 and is available to anyone who searches for Oxonian pen repairers email address. If John didin't want it on there no doubt he would have been in touch by now.

An email has just been received from John on this subject and he has specifically asked that his personal email address is removed from this thread please.

The problem for John is you can find his email address within 1-2 pages of a google search.  I doubt very much he could change his email address either due to the dependancy on it for repair work.  There will only be a certain amount from the few pen shows over here and a number of the pen shops who also use him.

The bottom line is that he has specifically requested that his personal email address is removed from this thread and its availability elsewhere on the internet is not relevant.

 

This is a personal choice and should be respected and not made public on FPN if that is against the wishes of the owner.

Thanks to everyone for their replies. I was aware that Oxonian didn't want his email circulated, which is why I thought it best to ask if someone could send it via PM. If anyone knows of any other UK-based nib tuners, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks,

James

This is becoming a popular slow burn thread.

 

Oh man, I'm totally gutted, my Sailor Pro Gear Sky slipped and damaged the nib! It's my prize possession.

 

I'm in Finland, and as far as I can tell no one here even knows what a fountain pen is.

 

If someone could PM me the email I'd be very grateful. I tried using the send email function under his profile but realized it probably doesn't work.

I know that, but prefer to respect the man's wishes once they were clearly stated in this thread.

 

He's not my personal slave to treat how I wish, no matter how desperate I am, that's just not cool IMHO.

Out of curiosity, what difference is there between the email address being given to you via PM, and sourcing it elsewhere on the Internet? The result is the same.

And if his wishes are genuinely those stated by others, they have remained as stated here. His email address is not in this thread. The external link is to a location online that has the address, of which we have no control over.

The diiference is that John has made a request that his personal email address, or links to the address, are not publicised on FPN, John has no control over that Philippines site otherwise I am sure that he would have asked for it to be removed. Johns email address has been shown in this thread and has been removed by a Mod and as has been indicated by a Mod above, contact John through FPN personal messages
