    Parker 61 Poor Threading

    today I got a nice set there are however problems: 1) the treading in the plastic ball point mechanism is poor and slips through, half the time the ball point ends up in two parts 2) the treading of the black plastic of the section is even worse (item 6 in the line up). The cap gets stuck and the section loosens. The black plastic section part looks worn. any idea why this made in England gold plated 61 set is so poorly manufactured? are there any fixes? or is the only option getting parts?

    Help With A Parker 61(?)

    This is my old student Parker, which has turned up at the back of a drawer after I put it aside in about 1980 in favour of inferior means of writing. I thought it was gone forever. Among other things I hand-wrote my entire PhD, 110,000 words, with this. The Parker Penography website shows it to be a Parker 61 (I think?), which would fit with a purchase date at the start of the 1970s. Is it an Insignia? This seems to be the nearest but the photos on the Parker website aren't that good. The converter was long gone so I have bought it a squeezy rubber one off ebay. Can anyone tell me anything m
  5. This one is a very special pen to me. Its my great Uncle Maurys Parker 61 with a rainbow gold filled cap and rage red body. He passed away back in 1964 due to a mess up during surgery for a basic procedure. He was a very positive influence on my Grandfather who grew up in an orphanage and later ended up becoming very a successful businessman back in the 50s-60s despite having no formal education other than service/schooling as an electrician in the Navy during WW2. My great Uncle was, by all accounts, a very smart businessman and pharmacist in San Francisco and one of the nicest and gene

    Is This Really A Parker 61?

    I've found this ad, and the seller claims it's a 61. It does look like the pictures of 61s I've seen but I've never handled one of these in real life, so I thought I'd better check with you guys. Is that a real Parker 61? Also, how likely is it that it's a capillary filler? I read somewhere that later 61 models have an aerometric filler or even a cartridge / converter filling system. The ad doesn't show a picture of the filling system. In your opinion, is the 61 better in any way than the 51?

    P61 Section Repair

    Hi, I have a Parker 61 that writes perfectly, but the catch (isn't there always one?) is that the section has a small crack that lets ink seep through and stain my fingers when I use it. Can this be fixed? If so is it something a novice can do or should it be left to an expert?
  8. Howdy FPN! I hope everyone's having a good day, recovering from Christmas. I have a new (to me) Parker 61 in black with a gold-filled cap coming my way for a late Christmas present to myself; and I was wondering how often is "often enough" to use it and keep the ink from drying up. So P61 users, please chime in, does it need to be used every day? Is not using it over a weekend enough time to dry one up?
  9. Hi I am new on here and am mainly interested in Parker 61's. Can anyone help with advice on converting a capillary filler to cartridge filler? Thanks in advance Allan
  10. I happened across this late model Parker 61 and ended up paying $32 for it. It was in great condition cosmetically, but upon filling it, I found that it leaked ink everywhere. The ink was pouring out of the bottom of the spring-bar converter, even though it seemed like it was seated fine. But let me back up for a second: for those unfamiliar (myself included), the 61 mark 3 was released in 1969 without the infamous capillary filler. Instead, it shipped with a system which was cartridge / converter, like the 45. So this pen is actually all original, and was made in England sometime betwee
