Too bad you're in Sweden (for me), and all my Swedish friends have come here... Otherwise I would have to raid your place! :roflmho: :P

Very nice tools! Making your fellow repairman drool... How cruel of you. You should think about others more. Maybe even give me some of those tools... :) (joke) roflmho.gif

Need a pen repaired or a nib re-ground? I'd love to help you out.

Some people asked me about the measurements and what it all means. This is numbers from a Parker repair manual:

 

(When I converted the fractions into millimeters I was surprised to find that Parker evidently based the measurements on millimeters :-)

 

A=5/8" | 16 mm | Midget and Gold Lady pens

B=21/32" | 17 mm | Lady Duofold, Slender Vacumatic, Debutante Vacumatic, Imperial Debutante Vacumatic, Lady Duofold NS, Lady Duofold Vacumatic, Debutante Duofold Vacumatic, Lady Challenger, Lady Parkette

C=23/32" | 18 mm | Junior Duofold Vacumatic, Junior Challenger, Junior Parkette

D=3/4" | 19 mm | Junior Duofold, Major Vacumatic, Junior Vacumatic, Major Imperial Vacumatic, Junior Duofold NS, Major Duofold Vacumatic

E=27/32" | 21 mm | Senior Duofold, Senior Maxima

F=7/8" | 22 mm | Maxima Vacumatic, Senior Duofold NS

G=1/8" to 3/32" | 3,2 to 2,4 mm | the distance between the feed ant the tip of the nib on the "51" pen, and the distance between the tip and the section.

 

 

Sac lengths for Duofolds (necked):

 

Senior Duofold = 2,5" | 63 mm | 9 Ø mm

Special Duofold = 2,5" | 63 mm | 8 Ø mm

Long Junior = 2,5" | 63 mm | 7 Ø mm

Intermediate Duofold = 2,25" | 57 mm | 8 Ø mm

Short Junior = 2" | 51 mm | 8 Ø mm

Lady Duofold = 2" | 51 mm | 7 Ø mm

Pastel = 2" | 51 mm | 6 Ø mm

Midget (vest pocket) = 1,5" | 37 mm | 7 Ø mm

Tony,

Amazing tools. Can you guide me on the screwdriver size that should be used to unscrew the clip screw on a Vacumatic Oversize or Maxima? The screw commonly is corroded or sealed into the cap, and the soft brass doesn’t help in removing the screw. I have tried taking the screws to my local hardware shop to find a screwdriver without any luck. Thank you.

algabatz: Lovely sets of tools. I am tempted to buy a set of collets that you have: perfect for swaging a loose hula hoop cap ring or two :D

wow old thread.

and it's called swaging when you squish rings on a cap with collets.

Omas used triangular collets on their 360 pens. Pretty cool stuff.

 

Nice. Wonder if the 'bionic wrench' (seen in the first photo) could be used (with collets) as a swaging tool?

 

Yes - very old thread. But, that's part of the joy of FPN, we have such a valuable archive, which we can dip into.

 

Stay safe, all.

I wondered about that too. Maybe swaging with a bionic wrench will turn a round cap ring into a 6-sided faceted ring? :-))))) Seems that the pressure is not evenly applied and only on 6 sides.

No. You can't generate enough pressure for that to work. Try to use it as a swaging tool and the band will bulge out in the gap between the pressure points.

Very nice! It's exactly like mine. Interesting to see that the inner lid clamps are original. My box also had them, but I thought they were a later addition and removed them (still have them).

I would very much like to see the tools in close-up. What's that glass-looking thingy in the middle, fi?

 

/Tony

An extremely late reply :-( the glass-looking thingy, is to show the amount of ink a capillary P61 can take up.

Oh, I don't really know. I'll have to check.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
