    A Few Wee Cracks

    Firstly, I really, really love my two Ecos. I have other pens, but since I have owned one, it is a TWSBI that I usually I pick up. The 1.1 stub is amazing, but that is another thread. I have noticed a few small cracks on the barrel where the nib section fits in. I am a serial flusher - because I like to change colour (don't they just look wonderful in this pen?) - so I wonder if the removing of the nib/section has caused this? I bought the pen in June last year so about seven months old. Anyone else experienced this? What do we think? Ta a lot. David SaveSave
  2. Buongiorno, I have a Visconti Van Gogh midi, Its coming up on three years old, so I think it is the older vision It has lived a sheltered life, not a daily user, never dropped. I found cracks in the cap!, not just one, but a 4 spiraling from under the cap band into the plastic. Under normal conditions they are not visible. but if I shine a light into the cap they become very noticeable. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks Mark http://www.maryhatay.com/Mark/Fountain-Pens/Mixed-Pens/i-R2s9Pcg/0/L/Cap%20damage-L.jpg
  3. I have recently inherited two Pelikan pens, a 100N in tortoiseshell, and a 100N in grey marble, whose restoration process I would like to share with you. These pens originally belonged to my grandfathers, hadn’t been used for many years, and were suffering from several problems, which a number of specialized repairers that I contacted in Europe – namely in Portugal, Spain, England and Germany – were unable to solve. Then I was lucky enough to learn about the work of Mr. Francis Goossens, also known as ‘Fountainbel’, who is a retired mechanical engineer from Belgium who nowadays dedicates to d
  4. I just picked up a new Montegrappa Fortuna Heartwood in teak the other day from an authorized dealer. I received the pen and it looked fine on the initial inspection but after looking at the body under mild magnification, I can see several cracks, about 3, in the pen body lengthwise starting at the metal insert where the cap threads too. These look to be all the way through the body. After seeing the cracks location under magnification, I can spot them easily without magnification now. Is this acceptable for a new pen? I have 2 Omas rosewood pens without cracks and also another Montegrapp
  5. My Harlequin was accidentally dropped by a relative and the cap broke in two I was wondering if you know of a trustworthy repair person I can send it to find out if it can be repaired. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. If Dan Smith says it can't be fixed, I'd take him at his word. My superflexy John Holland nib had too damn many cracks to be saved. That's a total drag, but it also raises a question: what makes a nib crack? I'd imagine that each company had its own alloy, and maybe some are less stable than others. Or is it the design of the nib? Conklin Crescent nibs tend to crack across the ends of their distinctive breather holes, but others split lengthwise. Has anyone had a think about this?
  7. I love my Platinum Preppies. Lovely nibs that write way above their paygrade. I kept reading about the caps cracking. Here I am thinking wow, these people cracking their caps must be abusing their pens, being heavy handed, etc. Mine are fine. OOOOpppppppppppssssssssssss. What with a cold winter and the heat running and lower humidity levels, blah blah blah I am making excuses----3 out of 4 of my caps cracked within days of each other. Some of my pens are three years old and the new 0.2 preppy is but weeks old. BAM. So now the cracks are bothering me and beginning to make the caps not

    Cracks In Barrel Of Mb 146

    My father recently gave me his MB 146. Its marked W.Germany on the clip ring, has a gray ink window and was purchased 1988-1990. He put it away inked and it sat for about 10 years. The piston was stuck when I got it and there are 3 hairline cracks that start at the blind cap trim and go up the barrel. I attached a photo with (2) of the cracks highlighted. The piston freed up easily after a soak, was flushed repeatedly and reinked. There are no signs of leaking. I'm looking for some advice on what to do next. I'll be closely watching it to see if the cracks spread, but I intend to use this p
