  1. 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
  2. I am seeking information on this unusual, modern looking, blue marble Safety Swan Pen with a gold-tone patterned cap. Can anyone tell me the type of ink reservoir or cartridges needed?. Barrel markings: "SWAN" SAFETY PEN, Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd Trade Mark Made in England NIB markings: SWAN 1 K 14C-585 Mabie Todd & Co.
  3. I recently found a vintage BCHR lever filler at an estate sale and decided to try to restore it (i posted earlier about this). The lever seemed to be stuck halfway in, and I couldn't get it out. I eventually got it- but now I'm even more confused. Any advice would be extremely appreciated. I got out what I thought was the lever- and I don't think that's what it was after all. I'm guessing the lever is missing altogether and what I thought was the lever is something else all together. http://imgur.com/mXegDCc you can see above what I thought was a lever and turned out not to be as well
  4. I was just ruminating on the fountain pen filling system history. What I can't figure out is, why piston filling mechanism was not widely used in the UK and US, since it is superior to filling systems using ink sac. I have nothing against lever fillers but looks to me like advantages of piston fillers are the reason it is today the only widely used filling mechanism apart from cartridge/converters. Was there an issue with the patent? I know Pelikan bought the original patent from a Hungarian engineer Kovacz. But I believe other European manufacturers started using same or similar filling syste
  5. I have bought through eBay a Conway Stewart Churchill, to discover that it features an unseen before (by me) filling system in a CS. Could anyone tell me about it? Is it similar to a Vacumatic? (?)

    Watermans: A French Pen That Has Me Baffled!

    Hello, or perhaps I ought to say, 'Bonjour', This French Watermans pen, possibly a Ligne 60(?), has a filling system that I haven't come across, before. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/2/5/3/2/1/0/webimg/827324423_tp.jpg Dipped in ink, the 18k nib writes beautifully, but I can't fathom out how to fill the 'cartridge'. The aluminium cartiridge has a hinged, brass tab at the end. Does the cartidge screw, or pull out? I'm reluctant to use force for fear of breaking something. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/2/5/3/2/1/0/webimg/827324814_tp.jpg http://ti2.auctiva.com/web/supersize/click
