I have a few Waterman pens (Le Man 100, 200, Opera and an Executive), and a few (all identical) converters that are more or less original to the pens or from about the same era. In the Opera and others the threaded converter forms a tight seal...but in one pen (the Le Man 100) the same converter is loose--to the point that it seems as though it could fall out. As far as I was aware the Opera is just a fancier body on the same Le Man 100 base. So I don't understand why the converter would fit any differently. Any insights? and where might I be able to get Waterman converters that fit these pens perfectly these days? A few of the converters became brittle and failed so I would like to acquire a few more and have read that some of the universal replacements do not offer a perfect snug fit.
islandink posted a topic in WatermanIs it still possible to get stub nibs from Waterman or do you know of any other source of replacement nibs for the Waterman 100 (besides random luck on ebay)? I would love to find a factory stub but would also be happy with a medium that could be custom ground to a stub And if so, any idea of the cost? many thanks
