I have recently inherited a couple of pens from my father. I'm mainly a Parker freak, and one of them was a battered P75 I've repaired and put back on the road. The other takes me out of my comfort zone: a Conway 87 - see photos below. It's in quite a bad way and needs a good deal of TLC. It is inscribed 14CTGOLD on the nib, and 'Conway 87 made in England' on the barrel. I've found a website that sys these pens were made (or started being made) in 1960. The sac has totally perished.

I recently acquired a Parker 21 that is missing its sac. The metal aerometric shell is in place, just no sac. I would like to replace it myself but can't find any info here or on YouTube about putting in a replacement sac for a Parker 21.

The hatched pattern had mostly worn off (it is older than me and made of rubber after all) But the inscription was legible and it is a nice size and weight. A simply pen (Conway Stewart basic model) but none the worse for that. The only obvious economy was the CS No. 3 fine nib ~ compared to my Summit, the nib was made of VERY thin metal. I made
Hello there, I just started writing with fountain pens and bought a Namiki Falcon with a fine point and some flexibility. The other day I rediscovered this little Morrison ring top pen that I acquired at a sidewalk sale in Berlin, Germany a couple of years ago. I tested the pen and it seems to write just fine but I have a few questions about restoration that can hopefully be answered here. There is information about this pen company on the internet but I did not find any technical data. 1. I need to install a sac but I also don't want to buy an entire collection of them to find what size fi
