    Daiso Preppy-wannabe pens colour range

    From the album: Chinese pens

    These fountain pens are Daiso's answer to the Platinum Preppy, with the clear, lightly coloured pen bodies and spring-loaded inner caps. Unlike the Chinese-made Platinum Riviere PTR-200, which Daiso also sells, they are not co-branded. These pens started appearing, here in Sydney, late in August 2020. I've only ever seen them in one store in the four months since, even though there are three Daiso stores within walking distance of each other. My first impressions are that these pens are of much better product quality than the PTR-200. The nib width grade is not stated anywhere, eit

    Osmia 294 Loose Clip Repair

    Hi folks, One of the things that can be pretty annoying on any pen is a loose part, usually a clip. Not only does it bother me when I'm writing, I worry that it'll get caught on something and pull off, or otherwise get damaged. One of my favourite pens is a lovely wood-grain Osmia 294 from the 1950s. It writes beautifully, and looks great in that streamliney 1950s way! The clip was loose however, and I thought I'd share the repair procedure in case it's useful for somebody with a similar design of pen. Ron Z has a blog on a similar (but not identical) procedure on his Blue Fingers Blog, so c
  3. I have accumulated several third tier celluloid fountain pens and "combo" fountain pen/pencils. Nearly all of them are missing the inner cap. Some of these pens and combos are really quite nice both in looks and in writing performance but they do tend to dry out quickly (some more than others). Being one who likes to use my vintage pens on a regular basis, I want to get each pen to the point where I have reasonable insurance that uncapping a nice looking 1930s Wearever Combo to write something down at the bank or some other public place does not have me shaking the pen to get it started. I
  4. Dear friends. I'm trying to remove the inner cap of my on-going restoration Sheaffer PFM gold cap. First at all, I don't want to buy any special-task tool like the Inner cap extractor in http://www.penpractice.com/page3.html What I tried so far: I heated the inner cap with boiled water and ther I tried to use the DIY tool suggested by antonio ilmonaco in the post https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/93139-removing-inner-cap-from-sheaffer-tuckaway/ , with no results so far. Would you please give me some suggest about this? Any trick or tip? Regards, Jose
  5. I assume that this question has been raised in the past, but did not have much luck in searching the forum. I have two very early Safari's where the blind cap has become brittle and comes out peacemeal. I understand that this is a common problem with the very early versions. Can these blind caps be replaced with newer ones? ...or has the design been changed?

    Montegrappa Inner Cap

    Greetings all, I am looking for a Montegrappa inner cap for a briar and sterling, of the Symphony series. It will be the same as the basic Symphony. I just wanted to see if any parts are out there before I end up making one. (yes, I'm lazy) Thanks Mark
  7. Hi All, I noticed recently that my M800 Renaissance Brown doesn't have an inner cap, which I suppose makes it more prone to ink drying. All my other M800's including the Grand Place have it. So is this normal, or is it a defect on mine? Thanks in advance

The lid's plastic is black, by the way.. Another question: there are other problems i could have due to the lack of a inner cap?

    Wahl Eversharp Inner Cap Removal

    I have a Wahl oversize (Greek key band) pen that needs to have a new clip installed. My question is, how is the inner cap removed?, is it a pullout from the inside, or is it attached to the outer cap end that might thread off with it? I have searched in vain for any such information. Any help would be appreciated. Bill in ontario.
  10. In a $$ pinch you may not have to fork out for a tap set - you might try the following. I removed a J inner cap using a storage hook as a substitute tap. The hook is basically a lag screw which has been bent into a long flat "U." The stage was set when I disassembled a decent (outside) looking J w/2556 nib I recently bought. The barrel jewel was broken, a corroded half of a J-bar (couldn't find the other half), clip was floating on the eyelet, floating band, rusted C ring, and no sac. Sac tray in decent shape, threads OK, and the barrel, cap and section OK with some use - no bites, dings, or

    Vintage Waterman Inner Cap Leak

    Hello there, I have had a bit of bad luck lately with a couple of antiqe waterman's that I recently acquired. Both pens have started leaking inside the cap to the point that ink gets everywhere and even down onto the section. On close inspection I can see that the inner cap on both pens is distorted. So the inner cap is no longer round and doesn't seal properly and on both pens I can see a spot where the inner cap has pulled away from the wall of the outer pen cap. Both pens are BHR from the 1920s does anyone have any experience with this problem and ways of fixing it? Thanks. scribe16

  13. Hi all, Wondering if someone can help out with a PFM II issue. I'm Not experienced in repair but eager to get this sorted. Got what looks to be a leak that's caused the plastic inner cap to degrade, unusual as I've only been using diamine inks but anyways. After washing the cap out thoroughly there seems to be no end of brown crud emanating from the spring loaded clip. Got a feeling its from a rusting spring thats up there. On to the question; is it possible to remove and replace the inner cap (on a PFM II) so I can find out what's going on? Many thanks for your help in advance, Ba
