  1. I recently picked up a NOS Fontainbleau Man 100 in Havana Brown from a shop in Kralingen while visiting. The pen is a wonderful writer when dipped, but I discovered on my return to the states the there is a problem with the feed taking ink from the converter to the nib. Specifically, it doesn't do so unless forced. The pen will draw ink from a bottle, so the feed is not totally blocked. But the pen won't write unless I force ink into it by twisting the converter. Then, once the ink from the twist is used up, the pen stops writing again. I tried repeatedly flushing the feed with a syringe and water doe travel through the feed, so it is not totally blocked. I also soaked the feed overnight in a water/detergent mixture. Today it is soaking in a water/ammonia mixture. What can I do to fix this? Please help!
  2. Hi, i just purchased a pack of Waterman pink rose (large) cartridge. It was ordered from an online shop. I think something is just not right. But as this is my first Waterman cartridge, i need help. The pack that i received seems to be almost half empty. Hence a picture of your new cartridge will be highly appreciated. As i will be able to question the seller. And it was not purchased from eBay. Rather a reputed online portal in India. Regards, Chayan

    Waterman 72 ?

    Hi everyone, a friend asked me to try 'n repair a couple of old pens, originally belonging to his grandfather. There are two parker and a sheaffer, but I can handle those. The kicker is the fourth pen: It's a black, faded to brown waterman with a 2 written on the nib and a 72 written on the butt of the pen. I must say I've never heard of a 72. So I'm asking you for some information before I continue. 1) Does this exist, or is what I think is a 7 actually a faded 1 ? 2) When was it produced ? 3) What's the working mechanism ? (If it's a safety, I'm sending it off for repairs) 4) Any tips, tricks or warnings in restoring this ? Thanks in advance, M.

    Waterman Converter

    Hello FPN Users, I have recently purchased a 2010 model hemisphere and it's on it's way in the post. I was wondering if I am able to fit an international standard converter, namely the monteverde mini converter. Some say they only take waterman converters, others say that it will fit. Can someone please answer this for me. Thanks ~Jake
  5. A great ink in a loud pen, I've written a review on this pen-ink combo. Here are the scans and a few pictures of the pen and ink bottle. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1lvqj_OqInM/UZaWtFbQ-JI/AAAAAAAABzQ/R1bra4AF0rU/s1600/comeback+post+50,000_0004.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-F7Y_NqHasH0/UZaYBsi3odI/AAAAAAAAB1c/Khj33xGBgyA/s1600/IMG.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2avBWXbinM0/UZaWuydIkRI/AAAAAAAABzg/0mp8BZnWisE/s1600/comeback+post+50,000_0006.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--58pqBTWUlw/UZaW9k00fwI/AAAAAAAABz8/4CKL80R_JVM/s1600/DSC07867.JPG http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rjOKSijOR5Q/UZaXCzB_gqI/AAAAAAAAB0o/eNt9sFz0tLs/s1600/DSC07893.JPG http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_7rj6YYLxyQ/UZaW85gz6FI/AAAAAAAABzw/WrJKCTAuDFA/s1600/DSC07863.JPG
  6. Hello All, I have recently purchased a Waterman 52 1/2V fountain pen with a flexible nib and have restored it to good condition. However, I find the flow to the nib to much too wet. Both the hairlines and the broad lines pool with ink, and sometimes the broad lines will be nearly black when using my diamine midnight ink. The pen is practically incapable of writing on cheap paper due to excessive feathering. Is there a way to reduce the flow? I am sorry if there were other resources with this information, but I could only find information relating to reducing the ink flow to a firm nib, which included adjusting the tine gap. Obviously, this would not prove very effective when the tines flex. Also, another minor question. I have aligned the tines on the nib when the nib is off the pen, but when placed into the section with the feed, the feed pushes unevenly on one tine, slightly misaligning it. It still writes, as the issue is small, but will I need to sand the feed down to be more even if I want this problem alleviated? Thanks for the help, Allan
  7. Hello, I was just cleaning up my Waterman Hemisphere and found that I did not know how to take the feed and nib out, if that is possible in the first place. I was wondering if somebody would be able to tell me how to disasseble it. Thank you, Nick

    Ink Help :)

    Hello poeple, I have been a passionate user of ink pens since past 10 years. Even now, after I have graduated I still use ink pen for all my writing needs. In my childhood there was never a complain of ink clogging problems since we only had availability of 1 - 2 brands of ink and the pens we used to be in a normal price range. Off late after I brought a Mont Blanc Midnight blue (Blue - Black) which is a permanent ink, which is not mentioned on the box, I had started using it and it clogged my sheaffer prelude badly, which I have now given for repairing but my Parker 45 survived it. After this incident I have stopped using that ink. Now I have started using Waterman Blue Black and Parker Quink Blue Black ink. I am planning to purchase a purple or a black colour ink for my Parker Premier Black / Monochrome edition. This time I want to be perfectly safe and the ink brands which are available in my region are: 1. Waterman 2. Parker 3. Pelikan Edelstein 4. Mont Blanc PS: Quink Blue Black does not mention to be a permanent ink, but is it really one? I found quite a lot of people saying it to be a permanent ink but it doesn’t feel though. I have read reviews but I would like to know personal experience of people using it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Pranav B
