  1. I have a pen with a generic (not rebranded) #6 JoWo screw-in nib unit (steel nib). I have 2 questions. 1. Will an Edison #6 screw-in nib unit "probably" fit the threads in my pen barrel? IOW, is the threading on the #6 JoWo nib units standardized? 2. In terms of replacement of the nib ONLY in the screw-in unit, will the #6 JoWo nibs rebranded and marketed by Goulet, Anderson, etc., fit into the assembly of my JoWo unit? Note: I did searches for answers to these questions, but I was not successful. If this info is located online already, please let me know. Thanks
  2. A nice weekend, as I managed to pick up two Watermans very inexpensively. One, a chrome Graduate, had a broken clip and a medium nib, and was mine for 50 cents. The other, a green lacquer Apostrophe in matching green leather Waterman pouch, was three euros, but when I pointed out that the (fine) nib had one tine broken off, the lady reduced it to two. We were both happy with that deal. (There's a small chip on the lacquer of the barrel, too, but otherwise the pen is in nice shape.) Here's the broken nib (with its feed). Oh dear, it's really bust. Strangely, I had a Waterman Expert fine nib that broke in exactly the same way. And it's horribly dirty. Nothing to be done with it but the bin. http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t411/amk-fpn/IMG_20140915_203058.jpg So, time to do a little swap. Soaking in warm water for half an hour, and then using textured latex covered gardening gloves for a bit of grip (they work for me! not the pair I use in the garden, though) I pulled the nibs and feeds out of both pens. The nib came out of the Apostrophe very sweetly - the Graduate took a bit more soaking and effort. A bit of cleaning up, swap the intact nib into the Apostrophe, and hey presto! a pen that writes! http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t411/amk-fpn/IMG_20140915_203154.jpg And it writes quite smoothly. The nib is nothing special, but it's reliably smooth, laying down a nice slightly broad side of medium line quite wetly even when just dipped. The Apostrophe is a good looking pen. Reasonably thick 'gold' ends and a 'gold' ring round the cap, and a deep green marbled lacquer. It's quite light, and subjectively I'd say (because I haven't got a Laureat to hand at the moment) feels a bit lighter and cheaper than the Laureat. The split clip appears to be very similar if not the same as that on the Phileas and Kultur, and the back of it is noticeably not flush with the cap. And there's a bit of the black plastic section showing, uncovered by the 'gold' band of the cap, which seems a bit strange and amateurish. Still, I'm very happy with this little Apostrophe, for slightly less than the price of a Pilot V-pen!
  3. Good day to all! Could anyone throw light on the following - Would the section of a regular Sheaffer Connaisseur fit the Sheaffer Asia Series bamboo fountain pen body?? The sections of both these pens look almost similar. My second query is whether the section of a Sheaffer No Nonsense would fit in any of these pens....although I have heard that a No Nonsense nib would definitely fit both these pens... Help on the above would be greatly appreciated! Regards, SS
