    Two Different Parker 45 Yellow Colors

    I'm a Parker 45 collector (among other pens). My impression is that the "Happy Colors" Yellow is quite hard to find. I have two FPs of one type of yellow, and one of another type of yellow. See the photos here from different distances and perspectives: Based mostly on the photo of the barrel ends, I believe that the two yellows (what I'd call a "goldenrod" yellow) that are alike are the authentic Parkers, and the one yellow that differs from the other two (what I'd call a "bright" yellow) probably is an Ariel Kullock creation. The bright yellow barrel end has a different shape fro

    Parker 45 Nib Alternatives

    I was looking over the chances of getting a Fine or extra-Fine nib for my '45. I was looking at the used genuine Parker nibs and there was mention of the Moonman 80 nibs. They are dirt cheap. Will they fit a Parker 45 section without problems? The 'M' nib in the P45 is a little broad for my liking. I am used to Indian Medium. I realise that the nib in my '51 is more like Fine/Medium & that is more to my liking.

    Parker 45 Desk Pen - Propeller Base

    Hi folks, I've just bought a desk pen from Ebay, and I'd like to know if there's a list anywhere of all the Magnetix desk bases Parker made? This is the propeller base, with a nice brass-ended desk 45, with a 14ct medium nib. Did 3rd party manufacturers make bases compatible with the Magnetix system?

  4. Well, here it is. F-C's new model, the 45 XLV. http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o535/Keir_Williams/image1-5_zpsucwimyu0.jpg This is my 2nd FC Pen, the first being a 66P. I saw the 45 in Black on their Instagram page, and noticed it was at Initial Price Offering of $90 including worldwide shipping, so I thought I'd take a look, and shortly after looking on the website I purchased it. I bought the Pen on a Thursday night here in the UK, and on Monday morning, the FedEx van called round and delivered it ! That's what I call good service ! http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o535/Keir_Willi

    Is This A Parker 45?

    I was recently offered this pen for sale. It appears to be a Parker 45 in rather good condition with a metal squeeze converter fitted in. But the thing that really caught my eye is that the pen was made in Mexico. I know Parker and other pen companies had manufacturing plants here, but I've never seen a fountain pen made here. My guess is that this pen was manufactured between the 70's and early 80's. Do you think it's worth a second look?

    45 Flighter Loose Body

    Hello, I have an original-style flighter 45 (dated to 1962 thanks to a cap monogram) with the black plastic body that a SS sleeve slips over. Got it cheap on Ebay because there's an issue with this body; the SS sleeve rotates freely from the plastic body, which means that to tighten or unscrew the body from the section, I have to grip the exposed black tip. I thought it would be an easy fix, but my original guess of being able to unscrew the black cap from the back of the body is turning out to be fruitless. Does anybody have any suggestions for reattaching the steel to the plastic? Thank

    Parker 45 Demonstration (Video)

    Here's a video I made a while ago demonstrating a Parker 45. It's the midnight blue model with a medium nib. I have it inked with Noodler's Navy which matches it almost perfectly. The bit-rate in the video is kinda low due to editing with Windows Movie Maker. Enjoy! I have more videos like this on my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6pAl06Dx2E1WqWof7JnnvA

    Parker 45 Coronet Set

    Happy days - today's post brought me the final pen that I needed to complete my set of Parker 45 Coronets http://pencollect.co.uk/personal/23.jpg The Coronets were introduced in around 1967 and featured a colored anodized aluminum body, a wider clutch ring then the regular 45 Flighters and a unique marking among the 45 family where the Parker logo is inscribed in line with the clip. Less easy to notice, they tend to be 1mm shorter in length then the 45 Flighter and are lighter in weight. Colors are Red, Blue, Grey, Green, Brown (often called Orange) and Black.
  10. I bought a 45 on ebay and ordered some Quink long cartridges. They aren't fitting. The ones I bought are on the top. Do I need the cartridge on the bottom? http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/Njg3WDEwMjY=/z/R2QAAOSwrklVG04T/$_57.JPGhttp://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzIyWDg4MQ==/z/OosAAOSwqu9Uz8Zx/$_57.JPG
  11. Hi all. Thought I'd post my fledgling Parker collection - it's mostly vintage(ish) with a few new ones that I've found at a good price. I'm looking to complete the set of UK Duofolds in blue - I can't get enough of them. I've also included a scan of the paper so you can see why I love Quink blue black, red and green so much. Anyway, sorry not sorry for the self indulgent post! http://i.imgur.com/e5EYPX4.jpg

    My Parker 45.. What To Do ?

    Hello all, I purchased on ebay as a new pen this parker 45 for 20€.. (maybe too expensive but in europe from what i've seen a 45 can be expensive!) and it seems to has been used well. I surely need to clean it, so what do you think it's the best way to do it ? I heard about an "easy" unscrewing of the nib, and talking about it can you assure me that it is a 14k gold or not ? I will have to open the pen, but as there are silver looking parts on the nib the kind of it appears pretty sure to myself.. I want to do all of this correctly to have a nice "restored" FP, even if the seller s
  13. I went on a buying spree a few months ago for flighters, and now that I'm wanting to sell them as my collection is going in a different direction, I need to know what exactly I've got. I know one is a 45, because it is stamped Parker 45. Trouble is, the other two are marked Parker but no model number. Here are some pics, I'd love it if someone can help me identify them. I think(?) they are all 45's but am not sure. Any idea what exactly they are and approximately what year? The bottom two are the ones in question. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, I hope they are enough for
  14. I decided to take some pictures while I was making a simple pen box for my father's birthday. I was so happy when I found a Parker 45 (that was in great aesthetic and functional condition) for my father's 45th birthday. But there was no box so I needed to make one myself. If you want to give away fountain pens without a box, maybe this simple tutorial can help you. I managed to finish this box under one hour and I spent nothing, every material and tool that I used was found at home. 1. Materials needed: - coloured cardboard - some kind of foam (polystyrene, thick cardboard, etc) - piece

    Parker 45 Pen Won't Flow

    So recently my father gave me his old Parker 45 (with gold nib) as he thought I needed a "decent pen". Unfortunately though, despite many attempts- cold water, various cartridges,etc- we can't get it to flow very well. Admittedly, it's not the newest of pens and has sat unused in a drawer for the past few years. Whenever I try to use it it cuts out mid flow or just doesn't write at all- the ink's just not flowing right. Any ideas on how to get it 'running' again? Thanks, Emily p.s sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm new here

    Is This A "45", Please?

    Hello! Please may you help me to identify this pen? 80% of it seems "45"ish. But the below part, near the ball looks different, no? This pen looks quite old. Any idea of the year... and maybe price? Would really appreciate your help. Thank you very much (and sorry for my bad English).

    Looking For A Dark Blue Parker 45 Barrel

    Does anyone know where I could get a dark blue P45 barrel? My 45 barrel is in a very bad shape (cracks and deep gouges), but the nib is fantastic. Thanks!
  18. I'm relatively new to fountain pens, and I was wondering if I could get some advice from the more experienced veterans Assuming working condition, one or two scratches or dings, no engraving, how much would you expect/be willing to pay for the following pens in good enough condition? Parker 21 Parker 45 Parker 51 Parker 61 and any other vintage Parker pens I missed
  19. Hello, I am new to this pen scene & I have in my posession an interesting pen. I'd be much obliged if one of you fine people could help me to identify it. I believe it to be a 1920's model 25, 35, or 45 safety pen with snake clip. I will include photos as well as a bit of an article from Pen World with a picture of what I believe is the same model pen as mine. Unfortunately the picture is small so its not the biggest help to me when it comes to identification. Unfortunately I don't know much of anything about pens, I'm just getting into it as a hobby after inheriting a few. I have
