  1. Hi folks, Here's a method to fit a syringe needle over a piston converter to suck the very last drop of ink from an ink bottle. rgds kenneth PS: Forgot to add, this method doesn't require a syringe that would take up extra space in your pen case. It's also one less item to clean. In any case, choose your favourite method :-)
  2. I've seen them at 1" and 4", with plastic needles and with metal ones. For refilling cartridges are there any preferred choices in length or material? Reusable? Disposable?

    Best Ink Transfer Tool?

    I was ready to purchase the item in the photo, but then I wondered, does it have enough suction to suck ink in? If you have experience with this either way, please reply. The reason I chose this rather than a syringe is that syringes become increasingly tight/dry over time, at least in my limited experience.
  4. Hey guys, not sure if best in this forum or maybe maintenance/repair... but if it needs moved I'm sure it'll be moved. I'm sure many people probably have done this but, earlier this year I started getting into fountain pens beyond that of my Pilot V-Pen disposable. I like to keep my stuff clean so a couple of months ago I made my own flush using a 'recipe' found on here and YouTube. In addition to using the flush (which is rare and only when changing colours completely in a pen) I wanted a better way to flush so came up with this. I took one of a few syringes that I have. All plastic sy
  5. A disclaimer first: this is basically a repost of an idea mentioned by member suchan271 here, but in a thread on rollerballs, so it's well possible that vintage pen afficionados didn't see it. In fact, this filling method seems to work quite universally, with most types of fountain pens -- including some vintage pens whose inbuilt filling system is out of order for certain reasons (such as bad washer seals in vacuumfil pens). All one needs is a feed that allows ink to pass, and a tank that holds ink. Plus a syringe and a piece of PVC tube. In essence, the pen gets winded by external force, a
  6. Hello everybody, A little more than a year ago, when I first started using fountain pens seriously, I was not really aware of the pleasure of using bottled ink. So I ended up buying tons of cartridges. Now, however, I almost exclusively use bottled ink, and those cartridges that I bought initially just sit in a box. I was wondering if I can empty them with a syringe and collect the ink in separate ink bottles? Thank you very much!
  7. Let's talk about a pen which is seldom mentioned here (or anywhere else for that matter...). The Gate City Belmont Syringe Filler. 1. Appearance & Design (9/10) This is the caribbean version, which looks pretty amazing, under my lamp the material sparkles like metal flake paint on cars (I tried to capture that in the first photo following this paragraph), the material is resin as far as I can tell. The pen tapers towards the end of the filler cap and the section, with the biggest circumference at the thread of the filling 'mechanism'. The ink chamber is translucent with a slightly
  8. Anyone refill emptly cartridges from botted ink with a blunt tip syringe? I thought it would be less expensive than buying cartidges, the convenience of cartridges, yet the variety of bottled ink. Any thoughts, advice, suggestions or warnings?
