  1. I frequently drop my mechanical pencils and my rotring 600 just died a few days ago from a severly bent sleeve. Is the rotring rapid pro with the retractable sleeve safe against drops? If not, could anyone please suggest a mechanical pencil that is heavy enough but safe against drops?

    Serial Number On Aero P51 Sleeve?

    Hello, today I stumble upon this picture, a Parker "51" that seems to have some sort of serial number on the metal sleeve. Check it out: http://img07.olx.ro/images_mercadorro/35367415_4_1000x700_stilou-parker-sport-timp-liber-arta.jpg It looks something like 2064/4 towards the end of the sleeve. I haven't seen such markings before on a P51. And what about this certificate of authenticity? Has anyone seen any like it? http://img07.olx.ro/images_mercadorro/35367415_5_1000x700_stilou-parker-timis.jpg Thanks!
  3. Hello All, I was hoping for a little advice on how to tackle my current pen repair problem. I have a very nice vintage celluloid Waterman's, but the nib section is too loose (~0.6-0.8 mm in diameter difference). The barrel is not cracked and the threads tighten onto the cap perfectly. Since the gap is a bit too large to accommodate for with shellac, I was hoping to get some advice on how to best machine and insert a sleeve of hard rubber or brass. My questions are: Is hard rubber the preferred material? Or is a thing ring of brass equally viable? how thin can a sleeve of either material be made reliably? Must I bore out the ID of the barrel to accommodate the new sleeve? Or can i simply machine the sleeve to fit snuggly in the barrel with some adhesive (such as shellac). and for machining the sleeve itself is it best to machine down the ID or OD first?I am a rather novel machinest and would prefer to keep my pen parts away from the lathe unless absolutely necessary.\ Thank you all in advance for any advice at all. ~Hanry
