    Loose Cap On Mb142?

    I have a burgundy MB142 MB 144 that's in great shape, but the cap-to-body fit is not snug at all. There's no distinct 'click' feeling when you push the cap onto the body; you can feel a little resistance when the cap seats, but nothing positive. I can't see any cracks in the cap, or any damage anywhere on the pen. I'm also not sure where to look, since I don't know what part of the cap and what part of the pen are supposed to be engaging and providing the 'click', if that makes sense. Any help would be appreciated. Scott

    Pen Cap Too Tight

    Hi All - I just picked up a Visconti pen on eBay that originally was made for a stationers in New York. The cap is so tight I'm afraid of cracking it just by screwing it back on. Is thee a simple fix to lossen it? It's an acrylic cap with a metal band at the base. This was made for the Rebecca Moss store. The picture of the pen is below. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Oxford Pen

    Hi all, I have a black Oxford (made in the USA)pen with right the Oxford 8 nib. The clip is missing - I don´t know how it is. Can You help me ? Thanks, Rusty
  5. I have a Parker 51. In it's cap, one clutch finger is slanted to the left, which slightly inhibits capping performance. If it isn't too much of a bother, could someone tell me if and how can one go about fixing this in a sane, moderately safe way? Many thanks, Edvin

    Noir Et Noir Nib/cap Alignment

    Good evening fellow fountain pen enthusiasts, Today I am posting my first on the FPN but I must say, being a silent member for over a year, I have really enjoyed reading the Montbanc posts and following the people who post more frequently. I got my first Montblanc two years ago when I was 18. It was the Montblanc 147 75th Passion and Soul edition with an EF nib and it is still in my rotation. Today I am writing to you all with a question about two of my Montblanc Noir et Noir Fountain Pens. I have to admit that at the time of purchase of my first Noir et Noir, I was under the assumption th

    Cap Ring (Or Any) Scratch Removal

    First of all, this is just a show and tell, not instructions per se. If you broke your pen, I will laugh at you and tell you to bugger off. But, someone has requested this, and I have time to spare, so yea. Okay, here's the step by step cap ring scratches removal on a Pelikan. Let's start this off with showing what the [first world] problem is. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2822/9796054335_7c8cae5e70.jpg Multiple ring scratches where the cap ring sits on the barrel. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3730/9796089576_0b59e136f0.jpg Heavy scratches demand heavy grit (caution! Start off with a sof
  8. Dear all, I've recently remember how much of a engineering marvel the Sheaffer snorkel is. After finding my pen I noticed how the gold plating on the cap, both on the clip and wide cap ring was fading considerably to a brass like finish. Would anyone know how to restore the finish of the gold back to its original luster? Thanks, Badger
  9. Hello I have a question I am making a Franken pen using a vintage nib Section 1 Sheaffer 33 or 3-25 nib. I need idea on minimum size for my cap section of pen. I have spoken to a person in Florida who makes Sterling Silver pen parts. I need to know diameter of the cap so I can order band for the cap my pen. Also artistically what would be a good band thickness? A thin band or thicker band. Any help appreciated. Your Farhan(London England)
  10. Hello I have a question I am making a Franken pen using a vintage nib Section 1 Waterman’s Ideal #2 nib. I need idea on minimum size for my cap section of pens. I have spoken to a person in Florida who makes Sterling Silver pen parts. I need to know diameter of the cap so I can order a band for the cap of my pen as I don't want to get wrong sized band. Also artistically what would be a good band thickness? A thin band or thicker band. Any help appreciated. Yours Farhan(London England)
  11. Hi everybody, I asked the same question in the repair section, but did not get any response. So I hope I am going to be more successful here. I have a Duofold Lucky 8 version. On top of the cap there is a kind of gold disc. This disc has spontaneously fallen of. I would like to get a recommendation what type of glue I need to use to fix it. But I don't want to damage the plastic of the cap or 'oxidise' the gold disc. And I don't want to run the risk that it will fall of again (as I am afraid that I might lose the disc). Should I use, epoxy or superglue or something else? Thanks for any h

    Parts For Sheaffer 300

    I have a Sheaffer 300 with crome trim. It's have a nice nib, smooth writter but i'm not happy with crome cap and plastic material of section. I think cap's base material is copper or smtg similar, easily lose form if gets a impact on tip. Not a good choice for a everyday writter which some accidents unavoidable. Anyway could you suggest me a website to find spare parts for Sheaffer 300? Like cap and nib ? Regards Ahmet
  13. Hi all, I've won this Vacumatic http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vintage-parker-fountain-pen-/261208379828?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=I%252F54QePjwSIBcPn4t%252FY06icTTi8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc and am wondering how I tell what the correct cap would be? I'm figuring even if it's knackered and I can't find an appropriate cap, it's worth it for the nib alone. But I'd rather not strip it if I can avoid that.
