    Parker 51 Restored

    Hey guys, hope this is the right place, but I've just finished restoring an old Parker 51 and I really wanted to show some people who might care! It was very interesting, and more difficult than normal as I suspect there was an unusual adhesive used on some of it, it took many days of soaking and heating to get it open. The jewel cap needed replacing also, and the whole pen was rather dirty. The sac was leaky so that had to go, too, and the feed tube was so corroded it snapped trying to take it off. What a mess. Now it writes perfectly, what a joy the Parker 51 is! I hope you find these

    Pen Flush And Mold In Pens

    Hello, I have recently acquired several cleaned/refurbished/restored/NOS pens, and I have used them without treatment. Just read several posts about mold I wounder will these pens increase the chance of getting mold into my ink collection of 10+ bottles of ink? And will pen flush like the Goulet ones or J. Herbin ones doubled with an ultrasonic cleaner while doing pen maintenance help control and eliminate any possible mold? All my inks are contemporary ink that are presumably fresh and I read that biocide are used, will this make my collection less possible to be contaminated? I do rotate p
  3. My first repair, and the first topic I've started. Whoo!! I found this pen at an antique mall for 50 cents (along with a couple Welsharps that are still needing some fine tuning.. ahem.) Anyway, I'm rather pleased with myself. I got it all cleaned out, slightly polished, re-sacked, and adjusted the nib to the best of my ability. It has some dents on the tines that the previous owner must have put there in prying the nib out, but it still functions. I had to gently close the gap between the tines as well, as the flow was extreme. Now, this is a nice little writer. A slightly hard-starter afte
  4. I'm somewhat new to non-student fountain pens, so I had done a bit of research before hand before picking a 'vintage' pen to go with, and as per the recommendation of two friends of mine (one of which being the one that restored mine) I went with a Sheaffer Snorkel. It's a nice American made pen that's older than either of my parents. The one I got here is a Sheaffer Snorkel Admiral (circa 1953 based on some of the insides), won it for $41 when there was only a minute left and I was already annoyed at being out bidded for all the other snorkels (I wanted to get something like the burgundy r
  5. Some shots of my restored black Sheaffer Snorkel Admiral (~1953), currently using Noodler's Black Eel in it. http://static.karlblessing.com/pens/black_snorkel_admiral/full.jpghttp://static.karlblessing.com/pens/black_snorkel_admiral/close.jpghttp://static.karlblessing.com/pens/black_snorkel_admiral/snorkel.jpg
