FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,
Due to a continuing DDoS attack, and a hardware malfunction, FPN is moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with both issues, but unfortunately both take time. Until these both resolve, FPN will continue to be slow. ETA is not available yet. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

My Mom just gave me her Parker Vacumatic, circa early 1940s. Before I start fiddling with it, I'd like to get it tuned-up/repaired.

 

Can anyone recommend a good place to send it to? (I live in the US)

 

Thanks so much!

Any of the above, will do you a very fine service, no need to look any further, enjoy using the pen, when you receive it back.
