After seeing a Jinhao x750 after being sanded down, I got curious. Recently, I sanded down a Parker Urban (2016 model) after the pocket clip broke off. I would like to dedicate this thread to the fountain pens that have had their finish removed. Please post pictures of your pens that have been sanded down or have had their finished scratched to oblivion. I'll start with my Parker Urban. Please post the pictures and the name of the pen.
Hello friends. I have a Gold Seal flat top that is refusing to let go of its personal point. I would like to replace the personal point, and have removed the section from the barrel without difficulty. But the personal point refuses to budge. I have: -ultrasonically cleaned the section in Koh-I-Noor pen cleaner (several times) -kept it immersed in clean water for days -used dry heat -tried hot water immersion (160 F) -tried leeching in Pen Potion #7 on several occasions, from the top and the bottom -immersed the entire section and part of the nib in Potion #7 for 48 hrs. No love so far. Do y'all have any suggestions? Nick
strelnikoff posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsHello fellow ink users, I don't know where this question fits, so I presume that best bet is "ink" department/forum. Before I go and start looking at youtube videos - I should ask here, where there must be many people who experienced similar problem. In the excitement while inking a new pen, few drops of Iroshizuku Yama Budo and few drops of Ku Jaku - ended up on my kitchen granite countertop. Few drops I managed to clean with water quickly, but few I've noticed to late. Now I have several colorful spots and I cannot remove them. The ink (it seems) seeped into the granite pores. Any tips on how to clean this? Short of - replacing the granite countertop. Thank you !!!! (below is the photo)
I just recently got an old Montblanc 24 from Ebay and I removed the nib unit from the section and there is ink trapped in-between the nib and nib unit. Does anyone know how to remove the nib from the nib unit? Or will I have to get a new nib unit(which I rather not do)? I can post pictures if needed.
