  1. Hi, I have a Pilot Super 60 that needs cartidges or a converter. I tried the Pilot Namiki cartridges that fit in my Pilot Elite, an original tab filler from a Super 100, and a CON-40 converter, none of them fit, they are all too 'fat' to fit into the receptacle on the section. The opening for the cartridge/converter is approximately 6.7 mm inside diameter. The Namiki cartridges, CON-40 and tab filler are all about 7.1 mm in diameter. Does anyone have suggestions for cartidges or (preferred) a converter that will fit this pen? Thanks, Kent P.S. I al
  2. The tapered barrel of the FC Model 02 "Intrinsic" is an exceptionally clever piece of design: it ensures that the cap posts deeply and securely, and makes the pen very comfortable to write with. Mine is in black an cinamaroon, so I have no intention of eye-droppering it, which means I fill it via the converter. The tapered barrel, and the very tight tolerances, mean that the converter knob sits very close to the wall of the barrel. This is all, undoubtedly, a very good thingTM. However, my pen is clipless, so between note taking, I place it in the gutter of my notebook
  3. I purchased a set of Caran d’Ache fluo 849 fountain pens some time back, but find that the Caran d’Ache converters purchased for use with these do not actually fit. They got stuck inside and were really difficult to remove without damaging the converters (and maybe the pens?). I managed to use a Pilot Conn50 converter, and that fits fine with most of the others. However, in the first pen I used, even that will not work. It’s an EF nib (I suppose I could try swapping the nibs between the pens, when not in use?). I refilled a J Herbin cartridge with the ink I wanted, but with the EF
  4. Those of you who have Kaigelu 316 FPs may have worn out the screw thread at the bottom of the converter, thus risking the odd leak. YCPENS to the rescue. He now has in stock replacement converters with the screw thread. I bought a pair, greased up the thread of one of the new ones, swapped the ink load over via a syringe, and now have a safe, securely screwed in converter. These converters may fit other pens that support an international-style screw in converter. http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/LncAAOSwFqJWqNCM/s-l1600.jpg Disclaimer - I have no affiliation with YC Gao, other than being

    Lamy Squeeze Converter

    Does anyone know how I might get my hands on one of the old Lamy squeeze converters (pictured below)? Thanks to haywoody for alerting me to the existence of this converter, which is where I also got the image (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/90367-lamy-safari/).
  6. Hi! I am thinking about getting a Diplomat Traveller but I am unsure of what converters it would be compatible with. Does anyone here have any experience from this? Would international standards work? Friendly regards Gustav

    Schmidt K5 Converter

    I have a kaco Master and I have noted ink feed issues in that surface-tension stops the ink dropping down to the bottom of the OE converter. I was wondering if it is possible to remove the piston assembly of the Schmidt converter in order to insert a tiny spring to serve as an agitator. I have a suitable spring from a converter from a Hero 2065 I broke up.
  10. Inspired by a Goulet blog and instructional video, I've discovered a new way to clean Waterman fountain pens which use converters or cartridges. I've always flushed the pen by filling and rinsing, filling and rinsing, etc., with a converter. The new way is to remove the converter or cartridge, then use running water to flush out the nib and feed, and fill and rinse the converter by itself. I've got a bulb syringe on order. However, I've immediately run into a problem. After doing this flushing, if I insert an ink cartridge and start writing, the writing is very faint. It takes a lot of

    Kaweco Dia2 Converter

    Which converter fits the Kaweco Dia2 pen (with the standard Bock 060 nib unit)? Kaweco have 3 types on their site - mini for the Sport, squeeze and standard. I bought a standard Kaweco converter but it doesn't remotely fit the pen - it won't even fit in the metal base of the section. Other converters in my possession don't fit either. I've seen this asked a few times but couldn't find it answered.
  12. I laughed today because I got some extra converters in the mail and they came in a jinhao box and I open up the box and get some baoer branded converters. I have ordered from this seller on aliexpress before and got a slightly different converter last time. I was wondering if anyone had any input on which chinese pen brand has the best converters. Should I stick to only using jinhao converters in jinhao pens, etc? The Jinhao converters hold the most ink but have no agitator (in pic related I added a small ball bearing to act as one) The baoer converter has an agitator (spring in one, smal

    A Proper Converter For Older Cross Atx?

    Will this converter shown here fit an *older* CROSS ATX (I presume), # 9080 (or 0806?) on the grip section?
  15. My husband just gave me A Campo Marzio pen that he had received as a gift from a client about 8 years ago. I love the pen, but it didn't come with a converter, and the cartridges (only 6) that it came with are much smaller than any I'm familiar with. Would anyone know where I can find compatible cartridges or, preferably, a converter for this pen in the USA?
  16. Hello, MB mavens: I have a lovely MB 221P, which is the c/c version of the 221. It writes like a dream and was a gift from my father many years ago. However, I've never had the right converter for it. I've long used an unbranded converter which was the only one in my stash that came close to fitting it. And it works, but it doesn't fit at all precisely. If I'm not careful with the pen, it will leak from the imprecise join between the nipple and the mouth. I want to buy the proper converter, or at least one that will fit properly. But I've always been hesitant to just buy an MB conver
  17. Hello: I recently purchase a platinum gold honest fountain pen. It is very nice looking and very old. Unfortunately, I can find no ink cartridge or converter to the nib section The current platinum cartridges or converter do not fit. Can anyone help? See picture of nib section.
  18. Today I was trying to swap converters between my 1911L EF and Zoom onto the King of Pen Lo and behold! It does not fit no matter how hard I push When I line up the openings of the converters, the KOP converter appears ever so slightly wider than the 1911L Has this happened to anyone before? I guess Sailor is trying have customers buy more KOPs!

    Alternative To The Pilot Con-70?

    I have a con-70 that came with my Namiki Bamboo. It's nice that it has a larger capacity (0.7ml) than most converters. However I'm not a fan of the pump mechanism that blows some ink back into the bottle, and also can sometimes spray / create bubbles. It works fine, but can anyone suggest an alternative converter, that has a conventional screw mechanism that will fit the Bamboo? I beleive the CON-70 fits the Pilot Custom. I don't need the 0.7 ml capacity, given the little writing I do at work. Thanks!
  20. Hi there, Can anyone tell me if my Sheaffer Targa 1005 can be combined with a converter. If so, which will work/fit best? Thanks, Sigrid
  21. Check that last one ... just when I think converter is just converter ...
  22. I just bought my first Faber Castell, a very cheap but cheerful Grip, and it writes way too well for a pen of that price. It's wet, it's consistent, it's smooth, I love it. However, the Faber Castell converter I bought for it won't stick to the feed. No matter how firmly I push it in, it plops out. Am I missing something?
  23. Hi, I purchased a Waterman Fountain Pen Phileas Kultur Iridescent Blue Fountain Pen last September on eBay, and bought a waterman converter on Amazon. It has always been a bit of a tough starter to get the ink flowing, but recently, when I thought it just was being stubborn, I opened up the barrel to find it full of ink and the converter empty. I cleaned it out and reseated the converter, and it happened again. I do carry the pen around in a case with my sailor pen in my backpack, but the sailor is fine, and the waterman will not hold its ink, suddenly. (It doesn't get as much use as the Sailo
  24. Hi to all! I am writing on a new chapter about fountain pens. The particular topic is about the technical side of the ink reservoir. For most styles I have found all the information I need but not for the piston and bladder converter. The dimensions I would need are their volumes, the height/length to which they fill up and the mechanical length of the volume, which would be a smidgen longer. Sure, I could buy one each. However, so far, I have always received your help, otherwise, adding it all up, it would have been quite costly.
