    Loose Nib On My Safari

    Hi, In cleaning my (stock) nib, I tried to wipe it dry with a cloth and it popped right off. All I could find in a Google search are articles emphasizing the difficulty of removing the nib (!), and they all just say to slide the (new) nib on, making sure it's oriented properly. I can slide it on to the feed, but it doesn't seem to slide into the section and it's just loosely sitting on the feed. What am I doing wrong? Is it supposed to go into the section? If so, do I just have to push it really hard? Thanks a lot for your help.

    Parker 17 Lady, Loose Cap

    Hello FPN members. I'm new so please excuse me if this topic has already been dealt with. I have three Parker 17 Lady fountain pens all of which have the same problem - the cap will not stay on when I have the pen in my shirt or jacket pocket. I keep buying another with the hope that it will be better, but no luck. I have also had to replace several shirts and jackets. On the latest one, which is also my favourite - green with gold trim, I have been able to extract the metal insert inside the cap (I think it's called the clutch), spread it out a bit and re-insert it. The lower edge of the inse

    149 Loose Nib

    Good evening all! I recently aquired a 1972-75 Montblanc 149 and started to flush it through. I have noticed that the nib and feed are loose - loose enough that with small pressure, I can actually rotate them. I'm wondering, how do I tighten the nib and feed from rotating? Secondly, who is a good place I can send my pen to be properly cleaned/polished? I'm in Australia. Thank you!

    Esterbrook J Loose Section

    I just bought an Esterbrook J that's in pretty good condition. Unfortunately, the section is loose from the barrel and is able to spin and be removed without much force at all. None of my other Esties have this problem, so I'm wondering two things. A) Is this fixable? If so, what is the best way to repair this problem?
  5. Hello everyone, I have a new Montegrappa Passione ballpoint that I could use some help with. This is a twist actuated ballpoint. When the ink cartridge is retracted, there is a bit of play in the action before there starts to be resistance. As it wiggles, I can feel a small pop right before the cartridge starts to extend. There is still play in the cap/rear of the pen when the ink cartridge is extended also, though not as severe. Is this something inherent to twist ballpoints or should it be tight with no play? Is there anything I can do to tighten up the cap and remove the play? Li
  6. I've replaced the J-bar of one of my Esterbrook J pens with an 54mm aftermarker J-bar. After doing that I noticed that the lever is loose. While the pen otherwise worked, the rattle of the lever annoyed me enough to pull the pen apart again and try to fix it. Googling for the issue revealed some insight from Brian Anderson here. However I haven't found any information about how best to do this. So I thought I would try on my own and grabbed a couple of pliers and used that to flatten the metal on sides of the J-bar. However it didn't give easily, and I'm not sure if it helped at all. I

    Nib Loose In Ebonite Feed

    Hi all, Have 2 pens, one Omas CS with Extra Lucens nib and one Radius, both italian, both with ebonite feeds. The issue I have with them is that when flexing, this means pressure applied, the nib rotates a little in the feed, and this is annoying. Since both have ebonite feeds, is it possible to fix this? Can you please tell me how? Thanks in advance
  9. As most High School students know, Mead and all those other American brand looseleaf paper, just dont work with fountain pens. It can be difficult to find the right paper for High School note taking that is friendly to F.P users without spending $10 per notebook such as Clairefontaine. There is nothing wrong with this paper by anymeans, it just that some H.S students like myself don't feel like investing that much for each subject, which can be up to 5 notebooks, and there's $50 which can be spend on a new pen for example. I'm Happy to announce I FOUND THE SOLUTION! After doing some research

    Loose Cap On Mb142?

    I have a burgundy MB142 MB 144 that's in great shape, but the cap-to-body fit is not snug at all. There's no distinct 'click' feeling when you push the cap onto the body; you can feel a little resistance when the cap seats, but nothing positive. I can't see any cracks in the cap, or any damage anywhere on the pen. I'm also not sure where to look, since I don't know what part of the cap and what part of the pen are supposed to be engaging and providing the 'click', if that makes sense. Any help would be appreciated. Scott
  11. Hi! I was just wondering which style of notebook binding people prefer. I thought of 3 categories: wirebound, composition, and loose. Here is my view of the weakness and strength of each: Wirebound: Often perforated so sheets can be removed if needed. Could be flipped over on itself (you can make the back touch the front when writing), useful if you don't have a huge desk. The "wires" can get in your way when writing on the left page (or vice versa if you're a leftie) Composition: What happens in the book stays in the book. (pages aren't perfor
  12. Hi Everyone! I began bookbinding not very long ago, because I want my journals to look the same from year to year, something you can't always do when relying on commercial products... plus, I can get a better quality item for far less $$, and instead of "close enough", I get exactly what I want. I've been looking for Clairefontaine loose paper (like you'd buy a package of printer paper; big block of loose sheets), but all I've been able to find are finished products like notebooks, journals, pads, etc. Is anyone aware of a source of loose, bulk Clairefontaine paper? Or, failing that, o

    Clip Repair

    Hello All, I'm very new to the world of fountain pens, and I just recenty got my first pen when my father found, and then gave me, his old Parker Maxima that he used in high school. The pen seems to be in good working order, but the clip is a bit loose. (Hopefully the photos illustrate this?) Does anybody have any suggestions about how to fix the clip in place? Glue seems like an obvious solution, but I'm not sure as to which one to use, etc. Many thanks!
