  1. Hi, I’ve had this Parker 51 reissue for just a few weeks, and have noticed these grooves in the middle of the section—anybody else? (trying to upload a photo)

    Parker 51 mismatch?

    Dear readers, I bought this 51 the other day, and I don't understand what goes wrong. It was like this when I got it (at a steal) and I thought it would improve after disassembly and reassembly. Not the case, unfortunately. I can't figure out which parts don't match. The hood (nose somewhat damaged) and barrel match colour-wise and it's sporting an original 14kt nib. The feeder fits the inner part neatly. Any advice on what to replace to make this a decent 51? Many thanks!

    Parker 51 sac protector

    Good afternoon- Snow day here in New Hampshire- I have been catching up on grading and planning, but am taking a break to ask a few questions- I have a "parts collection" parker 51 that I am working on. First, the new breather tube- has a small hole in it- that end goes into the feed, correct? But the tube does not go far enough in to... align that little hole with the hole in the feed tube. Am I correct in understanding this? That IS how I have assembled it, and it seems to work... the pen pulls ink into the sac, and it write well... Second-

    Hello from New Hampshire

    Good morning- I am a classroom geography! teacher- and use my pens frequently for sketching- usually, in normal years, on field trips with my 7th graders. I have tried using some color ink, and have also recently tried using some watercolor washes over inked sections. Still experimenting. I mostly use Parker 51 pens and have a small assortment to use, and to loan to my students to "try out". I have a few pens that are "under construction". .. in particular, I am currently having difficulty with one, that seems to be a mix of full-size and demi-size parts. I expect I will be wr

    My Parker 51 Writes Dry

    Hi All, I have few Parker 51 Fountain pens.One of them writes pretty dry.This pen is a NOS Green Aerometric model, Made in England.I don't want to disassemble it.Please give me some useful tips so that I can turn it into a wet writer without doing any harm.I'm not a specialist. So I'd like to request you to give me some easy and simple tips in this regard. Thanks in advance.
  7. Just got this and love it. Just about to ink it up.....it's so tactile. Gorgeous. Parker 51 with 'snail' bands....on the cap, and the barrel. Lovely to just hold and fouter with. The base is blank, a solid brass circle, which could be engraved.....any suggestions on how this might be done/by whom/where? I'm not planning to do it now, but might in the future,more than likely with the symbol on my ring which is in one of the photos(Order of the Unified Heart.....Leonard Cohen fans' symbol) Alex
  8. Hello... I recently acquired a Parker 51 and while examining it I felt like the nib is not correctly aligned. I'm new to FPs so I could be wrong, and it'll be super to get your opinion on this. Also, if it is misaligned, is it possible to fix it, and where in Mumbai / Delhi can it be done? Here are some images:
  9. I have a fairly dented Parker 51 cap that I'd like to take the inner cap and innards out for use with an Ariel Kullock fantasy cap. Mine has a metallic clutch ring with oval shapes. I know that there is a special tool for its removal, but it is expensive and not a worthwhile purchase for me. So I came up with an idea, inspired by my watchmaking caseback removal experiences. The plan: supergluing the clutch ring to some kind of a bolt. Then I'd pull the bolt from the cap to remove the clutch ring, and then dissolve them apart with a solvent that will only dissolve the superglue. Does anyo
  10. Good day all! I need help in identification of the colour of this Parker 51. It is a pale green, definitely not forest green or teal... It perhaps could be Nassau Green. It is an aerometric filler and as per Parker51.com, there were few aerometric filler nassau greens made for export. Any help in this regard would be very much appreciated! Regards, SS

    Parker 51's Version

    Can anybody say anything about this pen?

    New P51 Baby

    I acquired my second Parker 51 this morning, perusing a local vintage fair. It was manufactured in England according to the cap, and it's in reasonably good nick. It's a Mark III and judging by the jewel, it was probably manufactured by 1973 at the latest, unless the factory in England did not bother updating the design to comply with some US regulation about removable small parts. It has a lustraloy cap (not sure about the spelling) and the barrel is black. There is some evidence that white letters were printed on it at some stage but they have mostly worn away. For this reason I think it mig
  13. I got a 'pen part'.....the base of a Parker 51 desk pen, brass bottom: Im wondering what the possibilities of having something engraved on it(ie the pens bottom, rather than my own: though age and gravity have taken their toll on my own, and it would allow more area to work on, I draw the line - no pun intended....this whole topic is daft enough without my adding to it.....though it's written to try to keep my spirits and sense of humour up, as the last couple if months have been very difficult....) Anyway, any suggestions? Pictures shown. It's a nice thing in any case - I have one already,
  14. Hi. I have a handful of Parker jotters but was wandering around a vintage fair today and picked up a Parker 51. This is what it looks like: 20150308_170236 by windsandbreezes, on Flickr From what I can see, it appears to be Aero rather than Vac; the jewel off the cap is missing and the cap was engraved with initials. I don't appear to be able to date it although I suspect it is post 1953. I'm not an expert in Parker pens in general, and although I've been through the contents of Parker51.com I can't find anything useful to exactly date it. Condition wise, the cap has a few dents o
