  1. Hello there, I just started writing with fountain pens and bought a Namiki Falcon with a fine point and some flexibility. The other day I rediscovered this little Morrison ring top pen that I acquired at a sidewalk sale in Berlin, Germany a couple of years ago. I tested the pen and it seems to write just fine but I have a few questions about restoration that can hopefully be answered here. There is information about this pen company on the internet but I did not find any technical data. 1. I need to install a sac but I also don't want to buy an entire collection of them to find what size fits. Can someone tell me approximately what size sac this pen would need (I'm just looking for a ballpark size) and wether or not the sack should have a neck? 2. Am I right in assuming that because the pen writes fine that I don't have to do anything to the nib/feed/section assembly? I feel confident I can replace the sac but I really don't have the skills yet to extract the nib/feed. 3. Is there anything else that I should do to this pen to bring it up to snuff? the inside of the barrel is clear of old rubber but it has some residue on it and the inside of the cap has some old ink but nothing badly crusted. Thanks, Scribe16 On the back of a standard business card: the Morrison on the left and the Falcon on the right (note my unrelaxed, shaky hand ).
  2. Does the CS lever filler employ a sac? Recently bought a few vintage flex pens which employ an internal sac and found that they have an atrociously small ink capacity. Given that I am looking to add my first conway to my collection; I am fearful..

    First Esterbrooks. Id?

    Hello all! My first 2 Esterbrooks arrived, and I'm super excited! One is grey and one is blue. The blue pen is 4.5 inches long. The gray didn't have a cap, so that's a reason to cruise antique stores and garage sales for a while. I got them both open and the nibs soaking. One of the sacs came out, but the other is stuck in the barrel. I understand delicate exploration with tweezers is called for here? The one where the sac came out also dumped a broken J bar. Can anyone help with IDing the pens I got? The original eBay listing is here, and I'll get some milimeter measurements and more pictures up later when I dig out that ruler. Thank you! WirsPlm
  4. I have recently acquired a Conway Stewart 75 which recquires a new sac as the old one has solidified and broken into hundereds of tiny chips. So far I have been unable to locate any information on the appropriate size and I was hoping that someone here could help me out. (Also, any tips on sac replacement are welcome). Thanks.
  5. I like to mix ink, and I want many cheap pens that I can use for my concoctions. I was thinking about buying a 10 pack of the Hero 616 pens. But do you have to fill it from a bottle? What I generally do with the regular "piston type" converter pens is mix the ink up in a water bottle cap and suck it directly into the converter. I'm not sure if this is possible with the Hero 616. I generally only make .5 millilitres at a time. So yeah, I know this is a newbie question, but is it possible to suck that small quantity of ink into the sac? Thanks.
