Link Here- http://www.federalistpensonline.com/May-Update_b_26.html -DC Show, New Products, Montegrappa/Aurora Video, Susan Wirth Tribute What a month it has been! It has been quite a month since my last newsletter. I try to get these out as early as possible in the month, but school work and life can get in the way ! In this issue- News of new products, New brands for Federalist Pens, A new DC Show location, And the loss of a dear Pen Friend.... It is with sorrow that I inform you of the death of Susan Wirth. Susan was a BIG personality at pen shows for years (30+ that I am aware). Found in the back wall of the room with her signs, pens, helpers, and HER to help people pick the best pen for them- and write better! Her presence will be sorely missed at future pen shows. A memorial is planned for the upcoming DC Show in August. A link to the Legacy.com Obit: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/Susan-Wirth-obituary?pid=1000000185384131
Hi, have been a member of FPN for about ten years but don't often post. Not sure where to put this problem to get help ... so advice welcome. I own a few cheap pens that I acquired when I started collecting. One of them is an Aurora but I have long lost the model information and there are no other markings. It's 13.5 cm with the cap on, translucent red plastic barrel and the nib is marked 'Aurora M'. I recently went into the leather pen case in which it has been stored for about 7 years and discovered that the barrel had become covered in a sticky substance that could only have self-generated. No other pens in the case had the problem though I found an Indian pen I had - a Wality that had been stored in a wooden case - with the same problem a couple of weeks ago. I threw that one away as I never could figure out how to fill it with ink but the Aurora writes nicely. I cleaned off the 'gunk' with paint thinner. I assume this has something to do with the cheap plastic material from which the barrel was made but would like to know how it manufactured itself in a closed, sealed (but not airtight) case. There are 47 other pens in this case, some cheap and some expensive, but this and the Wality are the only pens in the collection that have generated this stuff. Where would be the best place on FPN to place the question for advice? Thanks.
