  1. Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the world of fountain pens, and have a couple beginner's questions regarding my new Retro 51 Tornado. It came with a medium nib, which writes nicely, but I'd like to purchase a nib that allows me to vary my line stroke and write more calligraphically and personally. Before I look into flexible or italic nibs, however, I was wondering if my pen can even take replacement nibs; the nib doesn't seem to come apart from the nib assembly/ feed, so even if I knew the correct size to buy I'm not sure if my pen could take it. Do I have to purchase an entire new nib a
  2. I recently acquired two Sheaffer Sagaris fountain pens, one with a fine nib, the other with a medium. I decided that I preferred the fine nib so I went looking for a fine nib unit to purchase to replace the medium. Since it's the entire unit, it should just screw into the barrel, right? I found a replacement fine nib unit from a seller in England, purchased it, and it has arrived. It won't screw all the way into the barrel that came with the medium nib unit. Hmm... So let's try the fine nib unit from the other pen from the original purchase. It won't screw all the way in either! Oh, futz..
  3. Hi I didn't know where to put this so please delete if this is the wrong place, but... I wanted to know how to pick the right feed for my pen when buying from Fountain Pen Revolution. Here's the link in case anyone wants to see: https://fprevolutionusa.com/collections/5-5-nibs My pen has a feed that is 39mm long but I'm not sure that's what they're measuring here. Any and all help appreciated!

    Twsbi Eco Nib In India

    Dear All, Greetings, I am from India and have newly joined FPN, a goldmine of information regarding fountain pens. I recently got (re-)interested in fountain pens after using a Lamy Safari for past 2-3 years. I needed something with better ink capacity and found TWSBI Eco to start with However, due to my stupidity I lost it's nib, and now cannot find a reasonably priced replacement for it here in India. Please guide as to what are my possible options. Thanks and regards

    Twsbi Great Service

    Just more praise for the excellence of TWSBI service. My 580AL has been my everyday pen for over five years with NO issues. Love it. A while back I dropped it on the sidewalk, which cracked the barrel. I made an email request and TWSBI sent out a replacement barrel the next day. Only charged me $4.00. Wow. Thanks TWSBI!!!

    Replacement Nib For Lifelong Pen

    I have a vintage Lifelong Pen in need of a new nib. Does anyone know where I might get one? Thanks for any help anyone can give me! Ruth
  7. So basically I have a HS dark age body, but need a nib for it. I know there are places out there to buy a nib for it, however, I want to see how the factor the following into any decision: Visconti is apparently switching to 18k gold nibs for the HS line going forward. Will those nib units fit in my pen? I also know that Visconti doesn't make their nibs and that I believe Bock does. Does Bock make a unit that I can acquire and use?

    Cda Replacement Nib?

    I have a Caran D'Ache Ecridor fountain pen with medium nib - would prefer to try a fine sized nib as ink flow is a bit fast for my liking - does anyone do a third party replacement nib to fit? Can the nib be removed easily? Or do I have to buy whole replacement unit at around £57?

    Replacing A Waterman Laureat Nib Feed

    Hello everyone, I'm exactly sure where to put this, but repair seems most apt to me. I'm fairly new to FPs, having bought a Pilot Metropolitan F about a year ago, and have especially started using them in the past few months. Apart from my Metro, I have a Waterman Laureat Mk1 M, which was given to me by my mother. She got it in the 90s, and I don't think she really used it more than a few years after that. I'm pretty sure she never even bought more than one bottle of ink. Considering that, it's been sitting in storage for at least a year, if I remember correctly it was not entirely clean e
  10. Hello Forum, I am in need of a replacement part for my Lalex 1938 pen. I have attached a photo of the pen parts, it is a small pocket pen. The feed and section are one piece. The feed has a crack in it, so it leaks. I have tried sealing it to no avail. Montegrappa no longer owns Lalex so I cannot contact them for assistance. Can anyone recommend a feed/section that will fit this mini pen? Tip of nib to bottom of feed measures 1.7 inches/4.4 centimeters in lengthThe silver tube that screws into the barrel and the feed slips into measures .8 centimeters in circumferenceThe pen in total

    Broken Carene Nib Grip Section

    Hi, First time poster and I am in need of help and experience. Unfortunately my Waterman Carene Fountain Pen has suffered the same fate as Balenemate's pen. His link is here from June 13. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/247665-broken-carene-nib/ I've added pictures below: The crack is around the entire circumference of the Pen grip. I believe that the Fountain Pen lid itself is defective and must have some how damaged the pen Anyone with experience of this problem? Will Waterman replace the entire pen under warrant? Rather than attempt a repair?
  12. Greetings, Long story short. My wife gave me at Med. Nib Platinum StarWalker as a morning present at our wedding about 2 and a half years ago. And... I never use it. The Med. Nib is faaar to wide for me - which is a shame. Only finding out about the 6 weeks nib exchange recently - i got quite upset - and asked my wife, who knows I don't like nor use the pen because of the nib size, if the Sales assistent informed her about the Nib enchange. She said no. I emailed Customer service explaining the situation and aksing if I could exchange it. I got a flat out "We are very sorry you are unhappy w
  13. I assume that this question has been raised in the past, but did not have much luck in searching the forum. I have two very early Safari's where the blind cap has become brittle and comes out peacemeal. I understand that this is a common problem with the very early versions. Can these blind caps be replaced with newer ones? ...or has the design been changed?

    Yard-O-Led Nib Unit

    Firstly, I know I made a huge mistake/boo boo...am daft, etc. insert word if choice. Trust me, Ive used them all, and then some. I bought this: "The plain version of the Viceroy style. Purchased in 1988. The nib is a medium point and the original. On the pen cap there is a tiny dent, barely visible. Pen number 4635 YOL 925 . Hallmarked. Wooden box and YOD guarantee" When I got it, it wouldn't write...I tried soaking, gently(no chemicals whatsoever, not even Fairy) patience, multiple flushing s etc. still wouldn't write. Long story short, contacted seller, who was adamant it wrote when he sold
  15. Does anyone know of Daniel Steiger fountain pens? They appear to be a watch/jeweler for men, and must have made some branded fountain pens at some point. I got one as a gift around 2010, and need a replacement nib/feeder, but can't find anything that fits and don't know what to look for in a generic nib/feeder anyway. If I knew the mfr of this pen I'd have an idea where to look, or if I knew how to know what size nib/feeder I have, I could look for a generic. Thanks for helping!

    Size Of The Ipg Nibs

    Hi friends. I bought a custom pen from a local store with magnificent wooden-made body. The problem is that, it has a cheap IPG (Iridium Point Germany) nib and not working well. I can grind it by myself, but I don't think it's deserve it because it is so cheap. So I decided to replace the nib. It seems like JOWO or BOCK #5-size, but I'm not sure because I have no #5-size-nib pen. Do you guys have any experience for replacing the IPG nib to nibs made by BOCK or JOWO? If not all the IPG nibs have the same size, I can measure my IPG nib and tell you. Best regards.

    Lamy 2000 - Replacement Parts?

    Does anyone know where I can buy Lamy 2000 replacement parts in the United States? I just need a tabbed spring/ cap clutch ring for the original Makrolon version. The pen is not under warranty.
  18. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place. I got an inkwell from goulet, and no wick came with it! Annoyed, I emailed Coles, who sent me a wick, no problem, but was told that they don't sell them. It looks like carded felt. So I found some 1/4 inch carded wool felt and now have way more than I could ever use in my lifetime. So I figured I'd share. Not making any money on this, just trying to use up my square foot of this felt. At what I'm asking I could afford to buy more stock and keep going if this becomes weirdly popular, since they don't take very long to make, I'll do this for you g
  19. As I plug my last cartridge of Lamy Copper Orange into my Al-Star, I start to consider replacements. So I have to ask: which inks the network believes are good look-alikes for Lamy Copper Orange? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!

    Replacing A Very Tight Nib In A Vacumatic

    so I got my nib back from greg minuskin, it's gorgeous, but now I cannot get the nib/feed back into the section deeply enough for the cap to screw down completely. my fingers are raw at this point. I have a homemade knockout block that I'm setting the section in, I'm using a piece of old motorcycle tube for a super secure grip, I've tried heating the grip in 160F water and then pressing it in, I've tried dish soap, I've tried a combination of the two. The nib and feed are correct for the pen, I've tried finding the impression of the nib into the section (there really isn't one I can feel)
  21. Hi, I have a Waterman Expert II that I have been using as my main pen in the past 4-5 years for work. It is a very nice and smooth pen out of the box. One day I come and the nib was horribly bent. I'm not sure exactly how this happened.. perhaps I dropped it without noticing, but I think it's more likely that someone took it and bent it :/ I took it to repair it, but I got it back and while it works, it still feels very scratchy. I think at this point it's better if replace the nib entirely as it was really really badly bent. Now the nib has some gold on it, I think. I haven't actuall

    Poa New Nib Policy Question

    Hi Everyone, I sent my Copernicus to MB to get a Broad nib installed in place of the Fine nib, which I have been using for the last couple of years. I want to have the nib changed because I really love this pen, and want to enjoy using it daily, but have not been using it as much lately since I prefer Broad nibs when not using a pen for note-taking and now have other pens that are much better suited to daily note-taking. Since the pen was a gift from my parents, I was hoping to keep the nib for sentimental reasons. Montblanc US just came back to me to let me know that, even though I will
  23. I have just got a beautiful English aerometric Parker 51 from 1965, but when I flushed out the dry old ink the press-four-times filler slowly started letting out water at the opening where one pushes. I assume that the pli sack has gone loose and either has to be replaced or re-glued with shellac - which leaves me with some questions: 1) How do I get the filler out? (It certainly is not easy to get it out and I don't want to use to much force.) Is it correct that it is not screwed in? Does it help putting it in warm water? 2) Any advice on what size of pli sack I should get will be appr
  24. Hey, guys! It's been a while since I've last posted, but I needed some advice! For the last year and a half I've been using a medium Lamy 2000M with Iroshizuku ink, usually Tsuki-Yo, at school. The notebooks I use can handle the ink no problem, but whenever I have to use it on regular printer paper, the ink bleeds terribly. I know that the Noodler's bulletproof black ink I had a while back didn't bleed through paper nearly as badly, and dried much quicker. Even though the drying time isn't a deal-breaker for me, I wonder if anyone might know of a good replacement ink which might offer simil
  25. Hello all I've lost the barrel of my favourite EDC pen: my Platinum PTL-5000. I (used to) keep it in the pen slot on the back of my Hazard 4 Badger ID card holder, and one day the barrel came unscrewed and disappeared without me noticing :-( I can't find replacement barrels but have an interesting "Frankenpen" question to solve my problem. I can get a Platinum Maki-e rollerball slightly cheaper than buying a new PTL-5000 fountain pen (http://www.andys-pens.co.uk/platinum-makie-rb-phoenix?tag=modern&sort=rating&order=DESC). Does anyone know if the sections are interchangeable bet
