  1. All: I need help choosing a chocolate or dark brown ink that will flow well. Wet, in other words. I write pretty quickly with Noodler's and Fountain Pen Revolution(FPR) flex nibs. I also like stubs and italics. I have only one old 1935-1939 "Ink-Vue" Waterman pen with a true old-style moderate flex. Love this sweet old writer. But my question is about the inks that have a consistently good flow down the spreading steel nibs we use to give handwriting character if we're budget-constrained. I jam together odd combinations of body and nib for fun. I take notes of plans and projects, write let
  2. I think I'm in the right forum section, but mods feel free to move the post if it isn't. I've got a question about inks "lubricating" the nib, and whether that's affected by water solubility. Anyway, context. I recently started using my neglected Waterman Serenity Blue again, and I'm about to chuck the bottle out the window. It's horrible . I feel like I'm writing without ink, and my handwriting is garbage because of the vastly different feel. Thing is, the Waterman is the most (read: completely) water soluble of my four routine inks. I also remember reading about "lubricating" inks, and
  3. I have this obsession with ensuring that my possessions get the longest longevity possible, and since hearing things about threads getting worn down (especially metal to plastic ones) I have been wondering if threads on my pens, even plastic to plastic, would last longer with some lubrication. The answer would have obviously been yes, but then I heard that even silicone grease will weaken plastic with time. So yeah, should I lube up the threads or not, if long term longevity is what is desired? Also, how important is it that the silicone grease in question is 100%? Silicone grease is hard to

    Very Stiff Aurora 88 Piston

    I recently acquired a 1950s vintage Aurora 88. The pen is in good shape overall and I would like to press it into service. However, the piston turning knob is incredibly stiff. So stiff that I thought it was jammed. With increasing pressure, I was able to move it, but stopped. I'm afraid of stressing the piston rod or stripping threads, etc... If it was a modern pen, I would think to apply silicone grease. Is that appropriate for this pen? If so, how do you get the grease to where it needs to be? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Lamy Al-Star

    I have 2 Al-Stars. One of them came with a nib that was very resistant to being changed and in the process of removing the nib I unseated the feed just slightly. The second Al-Star has the feed completely removed from the section and it does not want to be reinserted. I have lined up the feed with the triangular section but it still will slide only halfway into place. My question is how to I replace the feed correctly inside the section so that the cap will properly close on the section without interference? Lubrication? Silicone grease? Please help!
