149 Loose Nib
Forrester posted a topic in MontblancGood evening all! I recently aquired a 1972-75 Montblanc 149 and started to flush it through. I have noticed that the nib and feed are loose - loose enough that with small pressure, I can actually rotate them. I'm wondering, how do I tighten the nib and feed from rotating? Secondly, who is a good place I can send my pen to be properly cleaned/polished? I'm in Australia. Thank you!
Vintage Montblanc (12/14/22/32/monte Rosa/others?)
asegier posted a topic in MontblancDear All, I would really love to get into Vintage Montblancs and have been watching quite a few on eBay as well as locally. Are there any that people would recommend? I've mainly been looking at the ones in the title, and I've also had some trouble distinguishing nib size names. I like Fine pens (not Japanese Fine), and have been looking for a Fine Vintage Pen, but I've been seeing like KF and I heard that the K stands for Kugel... But I am unsure what that means (I think it has something to do with the bounciness and flex?). Also any tips when looking at these vintage pens? Like what to look for, hidden problems, piston filling mechanisms that tend to fail from certain models, or perhaps a rubber gasket or O-ring that always disintegrates, so I'll have to look at replacing it every now and then, etc? And any tips for what I'll have to do when owning one? Just so I know how much trouble I'll need to go to to own it (replacing specific parts every now and then, or sourcing the parts, or perhaps specific parts that are impossible to find, and hence once the pen has a problem, it's impossible to fix) Or any suggestions on any other MB Vintage pens would be welcome as well!
Montblanc Nib Feed Diameter Size?
UphillGil posted a topic in MontblancI am talking about the diameter size of the nib portion that goes into the feed (the opposite end of the nib tip). The nib feed diameter, not tipping size (fine, broad, italic). What is the diameter in mm of a Montblanc 149 and a Montblanc Writer's Edition? I am interested in both of those nib units but I don't know what the writer's edition sizing is. I know 149s are size 9 and I know the writer's edition is smaller, but how much smaller. I want to know what size the writer's edition sized nib feed can fit into and preferably exact diameter of it and also the exact diameter of the 149. (9.1, 9.3, etc.) I have found places that measured the diameter of them from shoulder to shoulder but didn't even post the feed portion size. That is a huge factor in a nib. Thank you all very much.

Another-Is My Montblanc Fineliner Real Or Fake? (Pic Heavy)
vikrmbedi posted a topic in Montblancokay I came across this pen at a good price . the seller seemed nice and had a few good pictures. so I bought it. the seller even included an extra rollerball refill in the price. when I received and checked the pen, I noticed that there was no serial no. on the pen cap. that made me paranoid....because of the no of starwalker fakes out there. so here are the images...please let me know what you think.I know it is a rollerball/fineliner... but I assumed I can still use the knowledge pool here at fpn. thank you for any help in advance. and excuse me for the pics...I used ipad mini for these. I can upload more pics if needed. http://i.imgur.com/mpUVItU.jpg http://i.imgur.com/YoH51ms.jpg on the packed refill there was a sticker indicating it was imported by entrack ltd (authorised distributor of montblanc in india). I tried to remove it, and it came off. http://i.imgur.com/5ULQfcW.jpg http://i.imgur.com/czXJ4j5.jpg there is quite a lot of ink damage. on flipping the cushion there is a slot for 2 pens. http://i.imgur.com/uwlg7oD.jpg http://i.imgur.com/IYGL2Na.jpg http://i.imgur.com/wsjMv18.jpg http://i.imgur.com/tl3KzWN.jpg it does say Germany metal pix under the clip. regards Vikram

Mont Blanc Nib Alignment Issue
Dillonjamesbrown posted a topic in MontblancI have a Mont Blanc 159, from the early 90's and the nib is ever so slightly misaligned which is leading so some feed issues. It's unlikely that it will require a new nib or anything, can anybody suggest a ball park figure for the cost of a service? Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated
