I have enjoyed using and collecting fountain pens on and off for many years and have now become interested in restoring them myself. FPN looks like the perfect place to acquire this knowledge.

A better place is the repair book by Marshall and Oldfield.  Not that you can't get good information here, but you also get a lot of misinformation, and you have to sort through it to get the nuggets.  A good repair book, or reproductions of the original manufacturers manuals are valuable resources.  I've been doing this for quite a long time now, and still have a full book shelf of reference materials, and Jon Veley's patent reference book.

Welcome home.  Pull up a stump and set a spell; preferably at the feet of a master repairman.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


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!

Hello and Welcome to the FPN Family... Hope you enjoy your time here!

 

I have enjoyed using and collecting fountain pens on and off for many years and have now become interested in restoring them myself. FPN looks like the perfect place to acquire this knowledge.

 

I am in the collection stage... will move to restoration when I retire

Greetings from the other end of the state (Pittsburgh).   :W2FPN:  So, what pens and inks are currently in your stash? 

I generally suggest that new people click on the "View New Content" button at the top of the page when they log in, to get a good overview of a lot of topics.  Don't do what I did when I started here, which was to read the Parker Forum -- all of it....   :blush:   Back then it was 175 PAGES of threads; it's bigger now....  I also suggest checking out the pinned Index to the Ink Reviews Forum.

Of course it's only fair to warn you that we are all total enablers here, and will happily help you spend your disposable income on pens, inks, paper, repair tools, books, sealing wax, ephemera,  pen shows, etc....
