    Flushing A Montblanc 147

    After puzzling over this for a while, I had the idea of snipping the end off a long cartridge and inserting it instead of the MB cartridge-carrying cassette. The long cartridge protrudes far enough from the back of the pen body to allow the use of a bulb syringe for a thorough flush It know it seems an obvious idea, but I decided to post it here, in hopes that it may help someone

    Wrong Ink Type Flushing

    Hello y'all, A friend of mine bought a desk at a local flea market and found a Pilot Metropolitan M nib in the desk drawer. Knowing I enjoy pens he passed it on to me. It seems that the previous owner filled the converter with some sort of cheap gel ink and the feeder and nib are clogged. I have soaked in water and soap, but seems the ink has hardened and will not come loose. I flossed the nib but the feeder is still clogged. Any ideas? Thank you for all replies.
  3. Hi, I've got a Vodka Yellow version of this pen and had it filled with PR Shoreline Gold, which has left an orange ring near the piston. Flushing repeatedly has got rid of most of it, but would J. Herbin's pen flush be safe to use to get rid of the last traces? Yes, I could live with it, but it would be nicer not to have to

    Parker 51 Vacumatic Flushing

    I just picked up a pair of vacumatic 51s which seem to be in great shape but haven't been used for a while. I've flushed them a few times using first a mild ammonia solution and then some distilled water, but what's the best way to empty the water from the pens before inking them? Nothing is expelled no matter how many times I pump the filler. Thanks...
