    Fascinating Tool...

    I saw a rather interesting tool on eBay for disassembling Pelikans : https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tool-for-disassembling-Pelikan-120-140-M400-M200/163938321950?hash=item262b7c461e:g:tecAAOSw-s5dx8Id I cannot comment whether this is the appropriate tool to use compared with some of the knockout block assemblies that we've seen over the years, but I was fascinated with the video. It appears from the video that the barrel screws into the tool, so as to retain it when the piston assembly is being removed. Part of the tool appears to be wood, part steel. Pretty obviously, this is only valid for

    Parker Pens Vintage Dealer Items

    As a Newbie I thought I would share some pictures of some Parker Pen dealer items I inherited a few years ago but I've only just got around to sorting through. I couldn't find any of these on a Google search so I guess they are pretty rare let along the amount of spare parts the repair kit contained. I haven't got any idea of the manufacture date and guess the items would span quite a few decades as the shop opened in the 1850's and closed in the early 1990's when everything that was unsold was boxed up and stored. The price tags are pre-decimalisation (1973) and the manual doesn't appear t

    Finally, Affordable Nib Blocks!

    http://www.vintagepens.com/images/cat/parts/7835b.jpg It's taken some time, but we now have our first complete production run of nib blocks in acrylic. These are only a tenth the price of the tool steel masterpieces recently custom-made in limited numbers, yet are sturdy enough for years of service. Further information available here: http://www.vintagepens.com/catill_nibs_parts.shtml#7835
  5. New tools for dismounting the nib section of modern 146 and 149 pens. These professional tools are very helpfully if you like to clean your 146 or 149 pen. Easy to use and no risk to damage the alignment of the nib - feed adjustment. The tool is made from stainless steel, the handle form Hard-rubber. Simply unscrew the nib section and you can fill the barrel with water to clean the pen. If the piston does not work proper it is better to remove the nib section and cleaning before you try to move the piston, mostly the little spindle will break. 146 149 If you need more

    Vacumatic Tools

    I've decided to try fixing my Parker vacumatics by myself. online I've seen two kinds of tools advertised for removing the back of the pen: one looking like a rectangle of metal with a certain number of holes, the other looking like a small wrench. I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about. Do you have preferences or suggestions? which one of the two kinds is your favourite tool?
  7. Ok I have seen some of you mention certain jewelers tools for things like burnishing. Lets say you had access to a fully loaded jewelers workshop from hand tools to flex shafts, anvils of various sizes, anything you could imagine for jewelry making. If you were able to use anything you saw in the shop, what tools would you say would make the best repair selection? My fiances father was a jewelry maker and gem faceter. He passed in November so my fiance inherited everything since she is the only heir. He has an entire workshop with everything needed for working with rocks, stones minerals and
  8. Its a tradition in my school to hang around posters for a person's birthday. "H" will be on one sheet of leeter-sized paper, "A" on another, "P", "P", and so on... So you can imagine that the letters are really large. I want to do the same, but with calligraphy. The problem is, I don't have a big enough nib for such a project. And suggestions for me fpn?
