As the son of an Argentine, it would be interesting to know when the South American onus shifted from Argentina to Brazil re both manufacturing and market.

 

I know that Parker had a factory in Argentina in the 1950s; anyone else?

Too many pens; too little writing.

Sure. It lasted from 1959 to the eighties.

Parker had BOTH factories (Brazil and Argentina) simultaneously.

 

Sheaffer too... The south american Sheaffer operation was called ILASA.

It's interesting that Argentina has been mentioned in this thread because László József Bíró (the inventor of the modern Biro pen) set up a company in Argentina to mass-produce his patented ballpoint pens many decades ago. Something must have encouraged him to go to that country and manufacture his pens.

Argentina had a golden period from 1930 to 1960. Several foreign companies established operations in Argentina because its money health. They falled after 1960 after several dictator military governments. In 1982, they declared war against Great Britain by the Falkland Islands. After that, they never succeed to raise up again...

I can accept your statement if you prefix it with "I think that".

Compactor was founded by Buschle in Wuppertal/ Germany

Kind Regards

Exactly, but the Buschle family emigrates to Brazil in 1953. Today they don't make fountain pens. They are comercial partners of the german brand Schneider.

 

Compactor Solo is the name of the Schneider model they sell. Look at http://www.compactor.com.br/produto_detalhe/solo

Just received in the post a Pilot 77 marked IND. BRASELEIRA. The tip of the lever on the filler actuator is broken off so it looks like it's going to be a bulb filler when I've replaced the sac, but I think it's going to be a nice pen to use.

Sheaffer Imperial 500

Brazilian made and designed... There are NO american Imperials with triumph nibs all gold plated. There are ONE american model, but it is C/C filled. Brazilian Imperial 500 is all gold plated and touchdown filled...

Very nice models Eduardo.

 

Tell me, is it possible to know, more or less, the price of the Sheaffer Imperial 500, in Brasil?

 

 

I bought on an auction site here... A set, composed by FP and BP. I paid R$ 100.00 (brazilian real), approx US$ 40.00...

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
