I have just had the pleasure of dealing with Mr. Heath. He is very knowledgeable and provides insight into the delicate restoration of vintage pens. I have sent him a Pelikan Golden Web Vacumatic that will need a new sac and maybe a new nib. I will give report how the repairs went when the project is completed, but he instilled confidence in me concerning his expertise and his enthusiasm for pen restoration. Will post later with pics! (Of note, I am not affiliated nor related to Mr Health or Pen Fanatic Enterprises). Thank you. :W2FPN: post-19620-0-24765500-1291678870.jpg

Tom did a golden web for me, actually showed me step by step how to be successful on restoring vacs. I have learned a lot from Tom in regards to pen restoration, so I hope that is a vote of confidence. And the parts inventory is pretty incredible. The best times I have is going over to his place and working on pens. Enough ramble! Take care! Rick

Part 2: I have received the Gold Web Parker/F nib from T. Heath. The nib is smooth as silk. The pen fills flawlessly with my ink.

A job done with expertise and professionalism. Anyone who has a vintage pen that needs restoration need look no further. Tom is the man!

Tom repaired a Parker 75 and a Vacumatic for me. I am very pleased with his work, communication, the fair price, and quick turnaround. I have no hesitation recommending him. :thumbup:

I've just completed a transaction with Tom and thought I'd share my experience. I shipped 6 vintage pens to Tom for repairs, mostly sac replacements. Just about the time when I was wondering if he'd had time to look them over, I received them back!! He had the pens repaired and returned to me in LESS THAN ONE WEEK! :cloud9: I now have 6 new pens to play with. :roflmho: I VERY satisfied. Thank you Tom!

I just had Tom re-sac and clean up a vintage Mabie Todd Swallow. The turnaround was quick, and he did an excellent job.

I'm looking for someone to help me do some repair work on a Sheaffer's Tuckaway (touchdown filling system) with a barrel that's cracked at the threads.

Could you help me out? I can send some pics for a quote.

Tom, could you give us an idea of what we could expect for typical turn around time (is the 10 days quoted above for the Parker 51 about par for other brands/models? Do you do any nib regrinding, smoothing and/or customization?

Thanks

Tom just finished a restoration on a Parker Azure Vac I sent him. All I can say is WOW. Excellent workmanship and attention to detail. Great communication and the turn around time was lightning fast. I would HIGHLY recomend Tom to anyone looking to have any kind of work done no matter how big or small. Thanks again Tom, you have a customer for life.
