Hi there, Looking forward to getting into this as very new.  Problem for me is I can't understand how to how to post for antique parts in the 'wanted' section for some bits that I'm trying to source for a restoration of the attached - a MabieTodd with an old size 1 14ct nib that is trashed as well as the feed; everything else is really good.

Hello and welcome to FPN.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome, Gerry !  

 

With neither nib nor feed, you don't really have a fountain pen.  How to turn a "pretty" tube into a fountain pen ?   The information is here, within the membership.  Be patient.  You may need a technician, rather than merely parts.

Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
