    Nib Crack On Waterman 42 Safety

    Hello everyone, I have recently bought a vintage Waterman 42. I have bought it through some youngster from apparently an original owner (a man in his 80's) and instantly fell in love with the pen. Outside, the pen seemed in decent shape. I bought it cheap, knowing that there will be some work on it. My first problem was - and still is - this pen was probably never serviced, the cork was dry, but - with some soaking, I have managed to start using it (today). However, immediately I have noticed that someone was obviously tried to straighten the tines, probably that "know it all" youngste
  2. Hello, i'm trying to remove the back part of a Waterman 42 1/2v with a gold overlay and i'm having some trouble. I know this part is screwed in in the barrel and sealed with shellac and i know that i must use heat in order to soften the shellac, his is not the first Waterman 42 that i take apart. The problem is that, even if i use enough heat to make the overlay scorching, i'm still not able to unscrew the part. Any advice?
  3. Yesterday i've found this little Waterman's Ideal 42 1/2v at a flea market. The only imprint it has - except from the date and the initials which i think were made from the original owner - is "Waterman's Ideal 18 K.R." on the cap and "42 1/2V" on the twisting knob. The nib is a #2 made in USA, so i can suppose the rest of the pen is made in USA too. Can someone tell me more about the kind of gold overlay of the pen? There are no hallmarks of any kind, can i assume it is rolled gold?
  4. Yesterday i've attempted to repair a waterman 42 safety pen for the first time . everything has gone fine until i reached the cork seal. Of course it was old, full of dirty and almost in pieces. I managed to make a well-fitting one from a nice piece of cork but i've read somewhere that i'll need to boil it in paraffine or wax to make it works properly, but i can't find a complete description of the whole process. I've also read that someone use o-rings instead of a cork seal. Can someone link me a source where i can find/buy them? (possibly in Europe ) Thank you for the help!

    A Noobish Question

    Hello everybody, today i bought a pen from flea market which is old and dirty but working, i will clean it soon. I am a Pelikan guy and a total noob about Watermans but it writes Waterman's ideal 18k on the cap and 42 on the bottom and i think it's a safety pen. It would be perfect if you can confirm the model and give me some info about it's history, i don't know maybe the the dates of the production. And also can you give me an average value cause if my guess about the model is true i've seen it's price range between 250 dollars to 2500 dollars . Thanks for your help and an apology for th
  6. Here are some KWZI green inks I was graciously sent to allay my confusion between #26 IG Green #1 and #25 IG #2. I must say that after trying them both out, they appear to be just about the same ink. Though an error in the labelling of sample of #2 and the bottle of #1 I used is a possibility. In my written example the two seem a bit different. #25 IG green #2 is more green and is a slightly lighter and less saturated colour. #26 IG Green #1 is a bit richer and has a tiny bit more blue in the darker parts. But the line separating the two written examples was done at the end of writing with
