TLDR: Waterman Lady pens have the same section threads as Laureat rollerballs I really like the modern Waterman Lady pens - I have a Lady Agathe, and a Lady Elsa, both made from vintage materials - and so when at a weekend sale I saw the characteristic little vignette painting on the lid of a royal blue Lady Anastasia peeping out of a box, I grabbed it. Alas, I got less than I'd bargained for: the lid, with a section jammed into it (and no way to safely remove it on the spot to see whether there was a nib, what size, material and condition)... no barrel. Well, it wasn't expensive. So I took the risk, bought it, and took it home, and eventually got it open, to find a perfect gold-plated steel F nib, that writes quite nicely. Still, there's not a lot you can do with just a section. So I had a look around my other Waterman pens. Surely, I thought, Waterman would use common threads on some of their pens. After all, we know that very many of their modern pens have interchangeable nibs. Bingo! The Laureat *rollerball* in gunmetal has the same section threads. I now have a Frankenpen. http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t411/amk-fpn/P1120347.jpg It's a bit messed up as a design, but it works! I also managed to get myself a red Apostrophe... which means I've only got the black one to hunt down now and I'll have all four colours.
