Cap Compatibility 140, 400(N, Nn), M200, M400
DCirjan posted a topic in PelikanI somehow got the way in which nib compatibility works. I have a different question, however, and hopefully someone can provide a reply. Do you know whether the caps from these models are interchangeable ? Any advice would be extremely, extremely helpful ...
Mont Blanc Meisterstuck 149 Diplomat
roberthansjorg posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHi, I have a 149 barrel which I believe is from the 70/80's and I want a matching bare cap. I think I may have found one which has the threaded post on the end to take a screw on snow flake top which I happen to have. The present owner of the cap says it's from a Diplomat 149 Meisterstuck. I wouldn't know if my barrel would be designated a Diplomat barrel so what are the chances my barrel and this mans cap would match? Only way to find out is to try it I know. Trouble is it's a long way just for this "fitting". I looked up the Mont Blanc website and there does not appear to be any reference to "Diplomat" there. Is this label just for the American market and not used in the UK? I've included a photo of the s/f top I've got which would screw down onto the threaded post on the cap and hold the clip in place as well.
Asking Stupid Questions
OPKS posted a topic in Pen Turning and MakingThe most basic, and probably most asked introductory question you all get is, "What is involved with making your own barrels and caps." I know there are a myriad topics that are included like material desired, time needed, cost, machining and tools, technical ability, etc. The reason I'm asking is because I've recently become the recipient of four vintage (1970's) New Old Stock Cross Townsend Nibs. I can't buy the barrels and caps and don't really want to sell the nibs, but they are otherwise useless. A Moderator suggested I take a look at this forum and I had no idea folks created their own stuff. So, I'm intrigued. Where does one find the necessary dimensions, etc. to attempt such an endeavor?
