  1. I have a 1948 all original (as far as I can tell, except for the section hood because of horrible cracks and missing pieces.) Parker "51" in india black. got it for free at a garage sale about 5 years ago because my name was Parker, replaced the nib hood that had horrible cracks and missing pieces with a new one and just recently got the vacuumatic assembly out. I did not like what I saw. I was planning on doing the repair myself, as I have done pretty basic restorations (sac replacements, nib alignment, nib grinding/bending)on some Sheaffers in the past, but when I opened it up all I saw was hardened ink and sac and horribleness (see pictures in link). So my question is: should I send it in to someone or fix it myself, if i fix it myself what do i use to get the gunk out of the barrel and what should I use to grip the feed to pull it out?

  2. 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.
  3. I'm repairing a Wearever Deluxe fountain pen and noticed that the J bar was corroded and broken. I'm thinking about purchasing a new J bar online but am not sure what size to get. Any suggestions? Thank you! -Jason
