  1. I have a Conway Stewart in excellent outside condition. I sent it to a pen repair person for a complete restoration, new sac, nib tuned and polished. I got it back and all it got was "grease" and does not fill or write. Charge was $17. (restoration quote was $40) Rather than pursue with this fellow and waste my time, are there any reputable pen restorers, repair persons in the USA, with an online website, that I can send my pen to for restoration and nib tuning and polish? Thanks for your help. jim

    Nib Tuning/adjustment

    I recently acquired a 146 Bordeaux and that has a scratchy nib. I took a look at the nib with a 10x loupe and it appears the tines are not properly aligned. Does anyone know if Montblanc will tune the nib if I send it in for servicing? Or will they consider the nib damaged and require me to do a nib exchange? Note: I'll be sending it in for servicing anyways since it's scratched all over the pen, just worried they'll write-off the nib and make me get a new one. In which case, it would be better to send it off to get adjusted and ground down to a fine first.
  3. I've seen with one of my wing sung 3008 pens that there's always hard starts on cheaper paper. If i press hard on the nib, the flow resumes but is a bit too wet. It does not write with it's own weight. This led me to think it had baby's bottom since the tines appeared aligned. However, when I use Tomoe River paper, it writes the first time every time. It also delivers a wet line, not a faint one. So is it a feed issue? I've never had this kind of a problem before. There's no issues with the feed keeping up with Tomoe River. I'm willing to experiment on this pen as well and would love any a
  4. Hi there, I'm in search of a someone in the uk (preferably England) who might be able to take a look at the nib on my Parker 51. I've had it for a couple of years, and I've never quite been able to get the nib to write the way I like. Thanks, Weemike
  5. Delta MomoDesign Alumina My Delta with a little tuning Introduction Being a long time “Dolcevita” user, I have always associated the Delta brand with “classic look” fountain pens. While do use (and love) my “Dolcevita”, for daily writing on the run I tend to give preference to more modern designs, such as the Faber Castell Ambition or Rotring Newton, which are my travelling workhorses. To much of my surprise, a few weeks ago I was surfing the website of one of my pens, inks and paper suppliers when I bounced into this Delta, developed in cooperation with MomoDesign. While Delta is a brand

  8. Would anyone know if there is a place in Hong Kong where fountain pens can be taken for repairs and/or nib grinding in Hong Kong?
  9. What's the best way to learn the intricacies of nib grinding? All the well known grinders started somewhere, and I'm curious how they learnt their craft. Also, do they all need that grinding wheel the cut and polish, or are there other methods which aren't too laborious?
