I've recently come into two CF pens, whose filling systems are a little lacking, My question is will mine cartridges work in them.

pictures below. Thanks in advance

Greetings!

Early Waterman Cartridges fountain pens (made circa 1959 aprox and later ) take CF Cartridge only. The cf cartridge is discontinued now and a little hard to find...New Waterman cartridges in production do not fit old CF fountain pens ..Refille your old ones with a syringe.. I suggest you.

Good luck..

René.

I am not quite sure what the actual question is.

 

Are these pictures of YOUR pens.

 

And what do you mean with cracked nipple? On which item?

 

 

The red and blue and silver thing is a cartridge. If the mouthpiece/nipple is cracked, it will be of no use.

 

The second picture shows a pen with a pressure converter. You press the coppery thing on the end several times with the nib in the inkpot, this will press the air from the sac which then on release will fill with ink. Works about similar as a lever, where your finger works as the lever.

Yes. both my pens.

 

 1) my red and blue cartridge dose have a slight crack which is causing a bothersome leak.

 

2) The pressure convertor does not seem to collect much ink.

 

My question was, if MINI cartridges would work in either of these pens.

 

Thanks

Dick, I might question pressing the coppery thing. I think one side pulls out to act as a pump lever.

 

Assuming you mean Waterman Standard mini, then I am not sure they will work.

 

Troll ebay for some NOS C/F cartridges and syringe fill them.

I think pen 1 is a CC and 2 a Ligne 60.

Never saw one in real life, while I believe you own one.

 

So I will defer to your judgement.

I am in love with this Ligne60, It is such a funky little pen. I put her through the gentle cycle on the ultrasonic cleaner once or twice, with a tiny bit of speed-ball cleaner in her, and she came out sparkling. As per Force suggestion I filled her gentle, waited a minute. drew a bit more wallah...like new. She is a very pleasant surprise to me, I can't keep my hand off. Oh filled her with Jentle Ink matching her tube. Anyway enough babble

here she is

Agree that Pen#1 is not a c/f. The cap looks like a c/c, but the nib is not the classic 'wrap around' found on c/c pens.  Is it made in Canada?  Towards the end of Waterman (before the French buyout) there were a lot of weird combinations that were released, especially in Canada
