    Reform 4328 With A Loose Nib

    Good evening, I recently received a Reform 4328 with a surprisingly nice flexible and bouncy nib. The problem is that the nib unit does not hold the nib quite well. When unscrewing the nib unit, sliding the feed out and re-positioning the nib where it should be, I get no improvement. Heating the nib unit doesn't yield any result either. From what I see, either the nib is too short and doesn't go far enough into the nib unit or the feed ring isn't tight enough. Would any of you more experienced collectors have advice? If at all possible I really want to avoid gluing the nib to the f
  3. Hello, fellow fountain pen enthusiasts! It so happened, that I found myself in possession of old REFORM Calligraph pen with B-nib. And I asked myself, why not to try to switch its nib to something more flexible? So, obviously, I looked in the direction of Noodler’s. The problem is, I can’t find out, whether any of two (#2 and #6) Noodler’s flex nibs is suitable for REFORM pen. Thus if anybody has any experience in changing nibs in these German pens, please share your knowledge with me. Thank you.
  4. A few years ago I bought some of these pens that were advertised as Reform Student fountain pens. I bought them from an individual, not an on-line store, not from Flea-Bay. They write well, but I have always wondered if they are really a product of the Reform company, and if they are if they have a specific model number or name or if they're just called "Reform Student" fountain pens. The nibs are stamped: Iridium Point Germany But we all know that that doesn't mean they were made in Germany. One had "Germany" on the end button,FWIW. http://i427.photobucket.com/albums/pp360/Ink_Stained
  5. What's gotten me back into fountain pens and prompted me to join FPN has been picking up a cache of pens at Christmas that used to belong to my Italian father-in-law. Among them were a selection of superslim pens from the 70s and 80s including the most svelte pen I've ever seen. Let me share them with you and perhaps you can help me identify them all. https://flic.kr/p/QMJwY8 In decreasing order of girth, from left to right (next to that standard unit of fountain pen measurement, the Safari/ALStar) are the following (apologies for the flickr links): * a German (West German, in fact) Re
  6. I have two vintage pens by Reform. One is the Astra model (steel nib) and the other is the Rekord 18 model (14k nib). Both are filled using an external piston rod that you screw into the back of the pen (in that respect, like an early prototype of CONID's filling system). The Astra works fine, but the Rekord needs a new cork. And there's my problem: I don't know which end of the pen I should be trying to open. I can't find anything on FPN that might help (only this report from 2014 of a self-destructing model). The section on the Astra can be unscrewed, which speaks for trying the section
  7. I have a Reform Rekord 18 that needs a new cork. I understand it's from the 1940s. Unfortunately, I don't know which end of the pen I should be trying to open and I haven't found anything online that would help. I did post a more detailed request - with pictures - on the Repair Q&A forum, but haven't had any responses. So I'm asking here, too, in case it gets a different audience. Advice gratefully received!
  8. Hello lovely people, This is my first Pif, so excuse if I botch something up. Somehow somewhere I have found myself in the possession of a Reform Calligraph fountain pen with a BB nib (double broad?). As I cannot write comfortably with anything bigger than a fine and it also pains me to have a pen that I don't use in my tiny (newbie fp) collection I would like to give this one to someone else. As you can see from the pictures below it has seen some of the world before coming in my possession and the "gold" plating is beginning to flake of at some points. I have cleaned it as best I could
  9. I've taken advantage of a big piece of practice for my calligraphy class (the one I go to, that is - I don't teach it, far from it!) to do a review of the various calligraphy pens in my collection - Lamy Joy, Rotring Artpen, Sheaffer Nononsense, Reform calligraphy pen and Calligraph (yes, those are two different pens: as Facebook says, "it's complicated"), Pelikan Graphos, Pilot Parallel and Online 'nuwood' calligraphy pen (a bit of a Waterman Serenité knockoff. Or hommage. Or something). Winner, for me, was the Lamy Joy. I love its looks, particularly the contrast of black and red, the shin

    Reform Pen Leaking

    Hi everyone, About a week ago I found an abandoned fountain pen in my drawer. I decided I'll try and make it work, since it always had a problem which I could never fix. The problem is that the ink seems to be leaking, but I don't know where from. I tried cleaning it, I soaked it the entire day in lukewarm water to clean its system from ink, then I filled a cartridge with water to test if it leaks. The water obviously has different characteristics than ink, so it seemed not to leak then (or I didn't notice it, since it's water). After that I put a usual ink cartridge in it to see if it
  11. Hi all, I always though the Reforms are a bit elastic as per se. This is just a sample of what can be achieved with a bit of patience. The pen is very wet and the nib has been re-grinded to add flexibility. There is some rail-roading but considering the size of the letters, I think is acceptable. Thanks for wathcing!
  12. Hi all! This is my small collection of pens so far: - Marble-like semi flex pocket fountain pen (Unknown manufacture with modified FPR flexible nib) - Namiki Falcon (resin) with Spencerian cut - Reform 1745 with nib reworked to add flex (actually it opens up to 1.5mm) - Lamy Logo with 1.1 strub and EF nibs - TWSBI Vac 700 with reworked cursive italic nib from EF and reworked oblique italic from B - Youngseng 016 The pictures were taken with a D90 and 18-105 lenses and YN465 flash light. Cheers
  13. The trauma of not having access to FPN was somewhat allayed by the arrival of some really surprising pens in the mail last week. The first to arrive was a Reform 1745. I bought this without much hope of liking it, but as soon as I inked it up and held it I knew it was something really good. I haven't left home without it since. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8137/8698132944_d5fd6a087c.jpg Next was a Jinhao 250, again I was expecting the worst, but I'm really, really happy with it. I've since inked it with Waterman Tender Purple and It's come alive in all its broad nibbed glory. The colour
