I have pm'd both mods twice now - the first around Dec. 15th, then Brian Anderson again yesterday and Gerry today. They must be away, maybe not receiving their emails or too busy. It's getting a bit discouraging because this is a great resource for everyone and I'm really not sure why they aren't responding, other then for sometimes life get's in the way.

 

Edit spelling goof.

I saw this great post sinking into the mass of data and saved it onto my PC, as a document on the desktop.

I have been away for three weeks taking care of my mother who fell and suffered a broken hip.

 

The article will be stickied...

Gerry, I sincerely hope all is well with your mom and that she is recovering and getting her mobility back. Life sure has a way of smacking us upside the head when we least expect it. I hope that you also are breathing a little easier now - that's an awful scare for anyone to have gone through, especially when it's one of your folks.

 

Thank you so much for making this a sticky article. Very much appreciated.

Yes, she is doing as well as can be expected. People heal slowly at 93 so it will be some time before she's up and around like usual. It was pretty frightening at first though.

 

All your positive thoughts and good wishes are appreciated.

 

Warm regards,

 

Gerry

This really is an excellent index that I'm sure took a lot of time to comprise.

 

Thanks maynes and to our Mods for pinning it. :thumbup:

Where can a buy another nib for my "Estie?" Would like a broad nib. Love the one I have. C.

Anderson's Pens has a very good selection of Estie nibs for, IMO, reasonable prices. And there's always eBay.

Don't be discouraged, I have never received a PM, also, been gone to the Philly show and just got back late Monday night. I'll look into this once I have settled down later this week.

Edit: I see Gerry took care of it. Thanks Gerry!

Hello,

I was pretty excited yesterday to find an SJ in cobalt blue at a flea market. It needs some work and I want to do it myself. I am looking to find a jewel cap & clip for a SJ cobalt blue, it is a screw type cap. The sac needs to be replaced and I was wanting to know how to determine what size sac is needed? I have seen a few different numbered sac's and want to make sure I buy the correct one. I also have a hairline crack in the body of the pen and wanted to know the best glue to use on it?

 

Thank you in advance.

Size 16. This will work on practically all Esterbrook. You can put an 18 in a Dollar pen, but even those will fit a 16.

Is there any guide for repairing the plunger-fill Safari handy?

You can go out to the Esterbrook forum level and search "this forum" with the word "plunger". There are two or three threads showing the subjects, one showing the innards, etc. The closest thing I could find to the plunger-fill sac is a Waterman small ink-vue sac (IMS).

Best Regards

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
