gammada posted a topic in ParkerI just got hold of a couple of NOS Parker 15 pens from the Newhaven-era. One is a Matte Black GT and the other a Energy Yellow Demostrator. I want to create a frankenpen out of the two by using the clear section of the Demo on the Matte Black cap and barrel, but I want the gold nib on this clear section. Anyone knows how to safely remove the nibs out of these pens? Thanks beforehand!
Hey! I was tinkering today with a couple of 15's to figure out what the issue is with the loose cap they seem to be known for. As I was screwing the thing, I noticed that if I didn't screw the section all the way into the barrel the cap would snap nicely. This is a pen for which I tried the hot water trick (filling the cap 2 or 3 times with boiling water and leaving for 30 seconds to nudge the inner cap's plastic back into shape). While that helped quite a bit, it was still too loose to trust that if I clip the pen it won't fall off. So I took a piece of 22 ga silver wire (22 Gauge, 1/10 sterling silver filled wire purchased from Amazon, to be exact) and made me a spacer ring. The cap snaps nicely in place and it looks well enough not to be a noticeable hack. Have fun... alex
For some odd reason I've found myself liking the simple and plain lines of the Parker 15/ Jotter fountain pen family as of late. So after buying a couple of them, but not feeling entirely satisfied with the looks of any, I decided to create my own by combining the steel cap and clear section of the somewhat rare demostrator version, with the barrel of the Matte Black model. The result as you can attest, it's quite striking! The weight is still on par with that of the flighter since both -barrel and cap, are metal but the looks are more of my liking than that of the current Jotter, which has a shiny finish. Also, the clear section looks way less cheap than the black one -that shows moulding lines. What do you think?
Let me start off by saying that I am relatively new to fountain pens. I've always been interested in them, but I have only recently started using them. I got two fountain, and one of them was this Parker 15(I think), but sadly there is no converter in it, so I was wondering if there was one I could buy. I've posted some pictures below just to make sure its a Parker 15, any help would be nice! _Aaron
