  1. Wasn't sure if I should put this here or not, but as it's partly about converters in general, that's my logic. I got a lovely old yardoled some time ago....turned out that the casing above the nib unit had a spiral crack, it leaked/wouldn't write properly(went through all the complaining to the seller route, who maintained - adamantly - that it was not cracked, or had not been when he sold it. He was wrong. But, that's another matter. All ended well, after I asked here, and followed up on the suggestion to send it to yardoled, which I did, and they put a whole new u it on it - nib, nib section, everything, no charge at all: I'd made it clear in the covering letter I sent that I had bought it second hand.....ie I was not the original owner: it felt like 'cheating' not to have told them that) So, it's lovely.....don't know the model: long, slim, plain, in a small slim wooden box. So much nicer than the more modern ones(just my opinion) Anyway, Im trying to find out if there's a converter which will fit: one place suggests a pilot. As it uses international cartridges, it seems likely that several might; I'd like the piston type. Any suggestions or help, please? I'll post a pic in a wee while....just wanted to ask first. Would also be interested to know hat the model is....the seller was not into pens, and even if he was, he was so unhelpful( and just plain wrong) that I have no desire to contact him as he wouldn't know anyway, and it will just have upset me. It's very plain, and has a sweet simplicity....the numbers on the top of the clip are 4635. Thanks Alex Edited to add photos

    Yard O Led 'clogged'

    I got a lovely Yard-O-Led, second hand, good condition, but am having problems getting it to write. I have flushed, flushed, flushed with warm water and an ear bulb 'skoosher', but there seems to be a build up of ink just round the joint between the nib and the part which holds the nib; when I lean it on damp kitchen towel, a purpley blue ink comes out. Im itching to use it....any suggestions? Will have one last flush and see if it clears. Should I send it to be serviced? Any help gratefully received.
