Methanius posted a topic in MontblancHi Montblanc enthusiasts, I'm not much of a Montblanc expert nor do I own any of their modern pens. What I do have is a vintage Montblanc 22 with a broken piston mechanism. The rod in the end cap is broken and stuck inside the piston, which is itself also broken. Thus, the only way to use the pen would be to jam the piston in and use the pen as an eyedropper. However, I've met a person who has spare parts left from a vintage piston filling Montblanc 221. It looks like the parts might fit in my pen in place of the broken parts, but I wanted to ask you guys if anyone knows whether the parts would fit or not beforehand. Thanks for any help!
Hello, I have a Duofold Senior in red permanite, double banded, that has a cap lip that is so severely cracked that it's lost four, soon to be five, chunks from its lip, just below the first band. I keep on regluing them, but it's ugly and not at all permanent. I sought some professional help to get the chunks and cracks sealed, but was told that the costs far outweigh the pen value, and the best course for me is to get a new cap. I'd like to avoid buying a whole other Duofold just to get at its cap. If anybody has a spare cap for a red senior in permanite they would be willing to sell me, or direct me towards a group or individual that could do that, I would be eternally grateful! After saving up for two years to get my dream pen, this whole experience is quite heartbreaking! Thank you, jcreilley Here's some pics of the cap so you can see the horror for yourself.
Hi Folks, I posted a version o this topic in the Parker Forum (here) that didn't get much feedback, so I thought I would try here as well. I'm working to restore a 1948 vac major and I need a new feed and nib. After bouncing around a few threads here on FPN, I've begun worrying about the interchangeability of Parker feeds (several posters note that the feeds they have on hand don't fit; some wonder about celluloid shrinkage being the culprit, others about machining tolerances). So I thought I would ask for input: On Balance, would any 3rd generation Vac Major feed fit? Or, indeed, would the feed from a second or first generation vac standard fit (barring of course the 'W' feeds) fit a third generation Major? I was also wondering about nibs for my project pen: what nib (model and date stamp) would be consistent with a barrel 1st quarter 1948 barrel? Thanks for your help and suggestions!
523 posted a topic in Other Brands - EuropeHi Everyone, I was just wondering if Graf von Faber Castell stopped selling spare parts online or if I am just not able to find the spare parts section on their website. I would appreciate any help or info. Thank you
