  2. Hello FPN, I'm working on restoring this 1949 Parker 51 Aerometric as a send-off gift for my sister's first year of law school. This one has some chipping on the Aerometric sac protector. Is there any way to stop it from chipping? I don't expect to restore the original chrome finish, but I was hoping to just stop any further chipping while making it look like a professional job. Can I use clear nail polish? Resoline? Any ideas? Thanks!

    Parker 21 Aerometric Filler Removal

    I'm sorry if this is a common almost silly question. I used the google search and found lots of entries about removing the nibs on a Parker 21, some things on disassembly of of the actual aerometric filling mechanism. Question #1: But I didn't see anything on the removal of the filling mechanism from the body of the pen. In looking around at pictures, I think it is threaded, so should unscrew. Is this correct? Question #2: Also, again just to make sure, does it follow the "lefty loosy" rule? If if the nib points to my left, and the top of the pen to my right, I'd turn the filling mechanism

  6. Hello! I recently obtained my Grail pen, a Parker 51 "Special" in Sterling, but unfortunately the section was cracked in several places. This Parker 51 section has a special layout, with it's feed being a pull-twist removal feed. Because this part is seldom sold anywhere due to color and type, and is extremely expensive when sold; I have decided to repair it. Being just an amateur restorer, I contacted a very nice fellow (Siamack) and he/she guided me to a Parker 51 repair thread! This thread from Siamack leads me to the repair materials. I have decided to use either Loctite Shoe Glue (unort

    Parker 21 Sac Replacement

    I recently acquired a Parker 21 that is missing its sac. The metal aerometric shell is in place, just no sac. I would like to replace it myself but can't find any info here or on YouTube about putting in a replacement sac for a Parker 21. My experience level-I have extensive knowledge of 45s but little on older pens with sacs. I have replaced the cracked hood on another 21 I bought. I have watched Danny Fudge replace several sacs on Esterbrook Js. My questions: 1) Are there any videos or guides for replacing the sac on a Parker 21? 2) Will I need to remove the hood to remove the aeromet
  8. Hello, I am communicating to all of you who have great experience in these pens. I just purchased my first vintage pen parker 51 aerometric condition near mint restored from a reliable website. But the problem is that the pen has a miserable ink flow like I've never seen, an extremely dry flow that makes the black ink look gray like a very soft pencil. It is also worse in my case that I write in cursive and fast and my loops look terrible and feel rough and look dim. And my question is if I'm supposed to have bought it restored so it's clean and free of obstructions or is it a problem wit
  9. Hello everyone at FPN , on Friday I just bought my first vintage fountain pen a beautiful Parker 51 teal blue lustraloy cap in near mint condition and restored, I look forward to it coming soon . I'm looking for a blue-black or blue ink that is water resistant and does not fade like other blue inks I've used before such as lamy blue that behaves quite well but my notes that I took a few months ago are about to disappear completely and also with the water goes completely. For that kind of problems I usually use noodler's black and blue black which turned out to be good inks in my 2000 lam
  10. So after my first failed attempt at getting myself a Parker 51 pen (got an Aerometric with the correct cap, but with a Vacumatic clip and travesty jewel), I set myself to restore balance to the galaxy by looking for another cap that could make my pen look like it was originally meant. Unfortunately, it seems not an easy task to find a cap for these pens at a reasonable price. As such, I was left with a pen with the wrong cap and a minor leak round the clutch ring, so instead of looking for a cap, I went searching for another pen! So here's what I just got. Can anyone tell me if now everyth

    My Very First Parker 51!

    Finally managed to get my hands on a beautiful Parker 51 fountain pen! It seems to be quite an odd Aerometric MK I model with a cap that might or not belong to this very pen. The cap has the Parker inscription over the clip (like the Vacumatics) but no diamond. It also says its was Made in Canada. The barrel or section don't have any inscriptions at all, while the filler mechanism says Made in USA. It's got what appears to be a medium nib that is super smooth and quite wet and a body that looks terrific after a mild polishing. The cap has small dents but nothing easily noticeable. I paid a

    New Desiderata Pen…For Real.

    Hello Everyone, I don't announce this kind of thing very much, but I wanted to share it with you kind people because this is one of my favorite places to go on the internet, and the FPN community is what makes it so for me. I am coming out with my latest production pens since the Icarus. I am very pleased with how they both are coming out. Those of you who know me personally know that I am not very easily pleased. It's been a long time since I used a pen that felt as comfortable as these. 1: As some of you know, I love wood. I think it's beautiful, has an unsurpassed feel, and makes an

    Parker 51 Mk1 Section Types Question

    Hi Everyone, I've been trying to find a straight answer on this but have been unsuccessful. I need to replace the damaged hoods on a couple of my 1950s aerometric Parker 51s, but don't know whether to get the "recessed" hoods which have space inside for an o-ring or the non-recessed ones which simply have threading. Does it matter which kind? Do you have to replace a hood with the same type that was originally on the pen? I'm hoping it doesn't matter, because I'd rather not take the pen apart to find out what kind it has. Thanks for your help!
  14. When I disassemble Parker "51" aerometric pens, I find two kinds of breather tubes. Sometimes, the tube is metal (silver or stainless steel). The tube is pretty long, going pretty far into the sac, and there is a tiny little hole in the side of the tube, close to where it enters the feed. The other kind is a short, plastic tube, which makes a little "comma" shape as it comes out the back of the feed. These do not have the tiny little hole in the side. So, I was wondering two questions, which I was hoping someone more knowledgeable than I am about the "51" could answer. I gather from the vinta
  15. I just gave myself two lovely Targa pens as a birthday gift. One is the Black Laque model, the other is a gold-plated pen with a striped pattern that I've been unable to identify on the sheaffertarga.com site (looks like a Regency sans the black contrasting paint). Both pens came in pretty good condition, with lovely 14k inlaid nibs that were properly treated and taken care of, but unfortunately, both came with cartridge units rather than converters. Upon returning home and doing the cleaning and the flushing, I tried fitting the aerometric converters from both my Blue Ronce Targa and my Tri
  16. I purchased this Parker Maxima UK Duofold 1958+ Aerometric filler by winning the eBay auction. My British friend had given me her late mother's Maxima- a teal one, that I have kept safe by not using it. However, I was always wanting to buy and try one in my daily library work. With a librarian's salary, it is difficult to afford such pleasures. I saved and saved and then I got it. I was pleased with this large formal and formidable-looking black Parker Maxima. It came from the UK and it was worth a wait due to a weak Sterling and a strong dollar. It writes wet medium line that is extremely bea
  17. Hi Everyone Recently my Mom gave me her USA made Parker 51 Aerometric fountain and Jotter ballpoint pen set with 270-M case. It was given to her new as a gift by my Dad before they were married in 1956. He had purchased it while serving in the USAF in England. I recall the fountain pen from my youth but it hasn't worked for as long as I can remember. When I got the set last week, I immediately started learning about the fountain pen. Soon found it was an standard Aerometric pen in Burgundy. While the pen is not dated, it was likely produced in 1955/56 since the Jotter ballpoint was
  18. I have just got a beautiful English aerometric Parker 51 from 1965, but when I flushed out the dry old ink the press-four-times filler slowly started letting out water at the opening where one pushes. I assume that the pli sack has gone loose and either has to be replaced or re-glued with shellac - which leaves me with some questions: 1) How do I get the filler out? (It certainly is not easy to get it out and I don't want to use to much force.) Is it correct that it is not screwed in? Does it help putting it in warm water? 2) Any advice on what size of pli sack I should get will be appr
  19. Does anyone have those new replacement sacs? Is it similar as those on the Hero 616/338/007 replacement sacs? For those who are interested there are 2 sizes; larger ones for the Hero 100/616 doctor and the smaller ones for the 616 normal/007/338: https://world.taobao.com/item/36251733375.htm BE WARNED it is in Mandarin so probably google translate?

    Parker '51' Aerometric Color Poll

    Hi All- I got to thinking the other night (while trying to fall asleep) what was my least favorite '51' Aero color and thought it would be interesting to see what all of you thought... so, which is your least favorite?
  22. Hi All- Please forgive the question if it has been answered before-I did a search and didn't come up with much for a '51' Aero pencil repair. I am a relative newbie and had read somewhere that the '51' pencil barrels are not the same (lucite) as the pens. I have a pencil with a crack in the barrel that I would like to stabilize so that it doesn't get any worse. It will be a user pencil for me, so I am not super concerned with cosmetics, but certainly don't want to do any harm, or use the wrong stuff. What should I use to stabilize the crack? I have attached a close-up picture. Thanks in ad

    Panama Aerometric

    I just picked up this vintage Italian Panama Aerometric fountain pen but am unsure about how to get the metal cage off so that I can replace the sac. I think that the cage may be shellaced on and in that case i suppose heat would do the trick. However instead of rushing in I thought that I would ask here.

    '51' Aerometric Pencil Cap Question

    Hi All- some time ago I fell in love with the Parker '51' Aerometric demi and now have a ...few I recently discovered that I really like the Aerometric pencils as well. I have a few and recently got a burgundy one. The band on the caps of all the others I have is a thin band, but this one has a wide band. I looked on here and on the web and can't seem to find any info on this. Just wondering, was it a choice at the time, or is it a particular year(s)? Thanks for any help!!!
