  1. The other brand sections have this kind of thread, and I couldn't believe we don't have one for Parker. So here we go. What Parkers have you added to your collection lately? We have 100 years worth of pens with the Parker name, and some of us are addicted to gathering them up. I have a number of items on order, both vintage and modern, and I will mention those as they arrive over the next few weeks. But to get us started, here's the ebay photo of a P45 I just scored: Burgundy Parker 45, 14k Medium - described as NOS. In fact, that's how I found it. I was searching for gold P45 nibs
  2. Hi all, after I posted only yesterday about how I use my Parker Jotter pencil as an ‘out of office’/‘site visit’ tool because it is robust, it has today developed a problem. It is ‘jammed’ The lead that is currently in its mouth/tip/jaws has worn down. No surprises there. The surprise/problem is that, while there are several new/spare leads inside the pencil’s body, no more lead is coming out of the pencil. I have pressed the button on top of the pencil a huge number of times, holding its mouth/tip/jaws downwards, but no new lead is feeding through its actuator mechanism The actuator mec
  3. I just got hold of a couple of NOS Parker 15 pens from the Newhaven-era. One is a Matte Black GT and the other a Energy Yellow Demostrator. I want to create a frankenpen out of the two by using the clear section of the Demo on the Matte Black cap and barrel, but I want the gold nib on this clear section. Anyone knows how to safely remove the nibs out of these pens? Thanks beforehand!
  4. I just bought this 1985 vintage UK-made Parker Jotter ballpoint. I bought it on a whim just because I happen to really like its color. But the minute I arrived home, I noticed that the clip has an unusual feature that so far I haven't seen on any other pen: the clip arrow has no feather up top! Anyone has a pen like this? Has any one seen one before? Really intrigued as to why it is missing such a feature.
  5. Hey! I was tinkering today with a couple of 15's to figure out what the issue is with the loose cap they seem to be known for. As I was screwing the thing, I noticed that if I didn't screw the section all the way into the barrel the cap would snap nicely. This is a pen for which I tried the hot water trick (filling the cap 2 or 3 times with boiling water and leaving for 30 seconds to nudge the inner cap's plastic back into shape). While that helped quite a bit, it was still too loose to trust that if I clip the pen it won't fall off. So I took a piece of 22 ga silver wire (22 Gauge, 1/

    First Year Jotter Mystery

    Hello all, I recently got a first year Parker Jotter in grey. I've noticed that this pen seems to only work with Parker branded refills. I have tried other refills such as the Schmidt Easy Flow and it seems when I click the pen it sort of gets stuck in the out position. This doesn't happen at all with Parker branded refills even after clicking the pen 20-30 times in a row. I was wondering if others has experienced this phenomenon. Also I was wondering which refills have worked well in first year jotters besides Parker Branded refills. Thanks
  7. I recently got an email from Jetpens announcing the reintroduction of the Vector line, now manufactured in France and while browsing Parker's website, I saw a banner listing a new Jotter FP being launched! Is this the beginning of something?
  8. I use a fountain pen for pretty much all the hand writing I do. The only exception is when I go in the lab. In that situation I usually carry a Parker Jotter Flighter with a Fisher Space Pen refill inside. One thing that as annoyed me ever since I started using that combo to remplace the Space Zebra (see https://penthusiast.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/the-space-zebra-f-7401/) I lost and was to lazy to make another copy of is that the tip of the Space Pen insert wiggles around when I write because the Space Pen refill has a slightly smaller diameter at the tip than the standard Quink refill. Thi
  9. I have a nice little Parker Jotter fountain pen that works nicely, but I just don't use it anymore. So instead of having it collect dust in my drawer, I decided to PIF it away to somebody who wants to use it. After all, it's christmas and why not bring a smile to someone who would like it. I will ship it anywhere, but ask the recipient to cover the shipping cost if it's too expensive. If you are interested, please write a few words about yourself (nothing uncomfortable, though) and what you will use the pen for. That's all! The winner will be selected this weekend, so it's gonna be a tru
  10. Hello to everyone. Could this Parker mechanical pencil on the photos be a Parker 45 or what could the number 45 indicate? Or yes it could be fourth quarter of any years ending with 5 before 1980, but it says Made in UK, so it must be from after 1987. Also, there is a little "Y" above Made in UK, don't know why (not directly above it, a "line" further). For some reason there is no Parker logo on the top, I hope that doesn't mean it's fake. Also, might be not best seen on the photo, but the number 45 is like outlines only. It has the original Parker logo before Made in UK, not the around 1998 o

    Is This A Fake Parker Jotter?

    I've just purchased this Parker Jotter from Amazon and I'm a bit suspicious because none of my other Jotters have markings like this one on the arrow bit. In the picture I've attached the pen on the left is the one I've purchased, and the one on the right is a Parker Jotter that I've owned for a few months.
  12. Hi Everyone. I condensed a video from my You Tube channel in hopes you would find it interesting. The original video was created to be a relaxation video so hence the soft talking. This from the video's description: This is a condensed version of a much longer video from my You Tube channel featuring the two Parker Jotters that were created by my grandfather, who worked as a tool and die maker at Parker Pen in Janesville Wisconsin from the early 1920s to his retirement in the 60s. The projects he worked on were for research and development and for that reason his work area was restricted t
  13. Here's a couple of images of the 'Jotter' with some close ups of the new features. The barrel is all metal, and the 'feather' detail on the clip is the new design. The refill is QuinkFlow, but with a modification to the top edge of the blue rotator part. This Jotter is in 'Kensington red' which is part of the new range of colours, shown on the Parker website. This one has the cap stamped with 'France IIIY' and total weight is 15gms.

    Jotter Cap Repair

    Is it possible to remove and replace the brass threads and spring/plunger mechanism from vintage Jotters?

    Parker Jotter Spring

    At local fairs I always buy Parker Jotter pens if I find them for $1 or less. They are all used and often had refills made by third part companies. What I noticed they also have different springs. Researching on internet I found that Parker today use type of spring as one on the photo. Most of my Jotter pens have it, but some have totally different shapes of springs. Can someone who has old original Jotter springs put here photos of them? Did Parker used always same shape of spring or it was changed during the time? Thank you!
  16. Just bought this on the eBay and it appears to be a larger Jotter. I can't find much info on these other than in the Wikipedia article on Jotters. Anyone have any info?

    Jotter Identification, Please!

    Hi, there. Jotter fan here. Please, may you help me indentifying those 3 ones? Like name of the edition, the year(s) and maybe price if I want to buy/sell it on eBay Should be very nice of you, fellaz. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Twgug_wJFVbmdnWUlsWnkyVFU/edit?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Twgug_wJFVT0RjWWR2U055VkE/edit?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Twgug_wJFVYWRVd3ZkeHkxejQ/edit?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Twgug_wJFVQlJRcnFyZkx3bTg/edit?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Twgug_wJFVdkFXc2lQRGRRXzA/edit?usp=sharing ht
  18. Hello! Please, I need your expertise to identify those 2 patterns. Need name of the edition (or pattern), maybe year and estimated price of sale (I may sell on eBay, not here). Thanks you very much for your concern (and sorry for my bad English).
  19. My understanding was that the barrel diameter for jotters was made smaller sometime between 1958 and 1973 - which is why the original jotter refill won't fit into later jotters. I have a pre '73 jotter whose barrel is too narrow to take the original refill. But I just noticed that the Royal wedding jotters, from 1981 because it says so on the barrel, can take the original refill - they have bigger diameter barrels. Did Parker keep changing barrel sizes?

    Need Help Identifying This Pen

    My first post here. I have a parker jotter, presumably Imperial. It has 1. Millerias-like lined pattern 2. Brass threads 3. Wider barrel that takes the original T-ball jotter 4. Cap Band has "Parker" and Made in USA" 5. Parker logo above the cap band in the lined aread of the cap It is gold plated (I'm assuming it's plated, not filled, because there's no GF inscription) but it looks more like rose gold, not yellow - even the threads on the barrel look more like bronze than brass. I'll appreciate any help in identifying this pen.
  21. Hi all, I am hoping you can help me out. I am looking for a fine point (0.5mm) point blue gel/rollerball refill that will fit in a Parker Jotter. So far, I can only find black Parker fine point and they generally have poor reviews (short lasting). Any suggestions? It would be nice if it didn't cost as much as a whole new Jotter pen... Thanks.
  22. Hi, All. Recently I buy on eBay Parker Window Jotter (made in England) By outward signs, this pen - pre 70-s release Thread cap brass. However, has сoarse thread. Such pens - a rarity or not?
