For five years, around 1980, I worked for a pen manufacturer, as designer and ingeneer. During this time I discovered that not everything that works, can be or needs to be explained. For an ingeneer, to accept magic and let it exist in his work is a huge step. Thirty odd years later, fountain pens still fascinate me, their function in particular. Therefore, I started publishing my memoires on my web site titled Fountain Pen Magic. You can / will find there all sorts of interesting things relating to technology, function and manufacture, as much as I can remember. The link to my site is https://fountainpendesign.wordpress.com/ Come and visit and let’s initiate communication amongst technically interested fountain pen lovers. At the moment, I write what I believe you are interested in. Writing can be a lonely task. Engagement with you will be a highlight. Enjoy reading and discovering Amadeus W.

egglorru posted a topic in WatermanI just acquired a Waterman Sleeve Filler with a wet noodle nib and did some research on its production - all I can find online is that it was apparently patented in 1909 and that it was produced from 1910-1915 before Waterman lever fillers went into production. The problem here is that my pen is labelled thus: "Pat'd 1884 May 23, 1899 Waterman's (Ideal) Fountain- Pen N.Y. U.S.A. & Aug 4, 1903" This inscription is on the sleeve itself. Any advice? Photos below - I hope they show up, it's my first time adding photos to a post. http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j30/egglorru/Screen%20Shot%202016-04-02%20at%205.09.28%20PM_zps1ewkfsgs.pnghttp://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j30/egglorru/Screen%20Shot%202016-04-02%20at%205.10.00%20PM_zpsq161rxln.png
