Hello From Peterborough, New Hampshire



Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Bryan from NH. I grew up in England and my school would not allow us to use ballpoints becuse they affected the character of one's handwriting.I've been a regular FP user for about 55 years. I still have two Shaeffer's I recieved as gifts for my barmitzvah, and that was 50 years ago! I didn't know any one actually collected fountain pens until a few weeks ago when I found my touchdown wouldn't fill. I went on line and discoverd this network which has led me to bid on a number of pens on Ebay. (I now have a bunch of Wearevers for practice repair) I bought a touchdown repair kit and that pen is now working again. My collection, if you can call it that, includes Lamy Safari, Rotring Core, 2 Shaeffers, Esterbrook, Montblanc Classic (what a leaker!), several Wearever bits and pieces, 2 osmiroids, 2 Serwex, a Hero 616 (I love cheap pens!). I just picked up a Jinhao X750, its a heavy bugger!

I like broad nibs, especially stub italics. I'd love to get my hands on a Burnham, It is the pen I used all through school.

I'm looking forward to the New England Pen show.

Warmest welcomes, Bryan !

 

It seems that someone always gives a gift of a fountain pen in celebration of barmitzvah. I love that practice,

I wish it were more common everywhere.

 

I, too, have a fascination with "LOW-END" fountain pens. I have a love-hate relationship with the Jinhao x750.

I like the big war club, with its generous line of ink, but hate having to push a bit of ink into the nib, from time

to time. In my early stage of exploring fountain pens from India (Serwex, Guider, Oliver), I am finding pretty

GOOD VALUE..

 

Especially with cheaper pens, begin with a flush of dilute dish detergent (Dawn) to remove residual grit & oil

of manufacturing (plastic is petroleum), followed by a thorough clean-water rinse.

 

Through the medium of fountain pens, I have found GOOD VALUE in fellow members here, as well. I think

you will enjoy your time here, especially among us at the "LOW-END". :lticaptd:

 

Write with joy.

I'm looking forward to the New England Pen show.

Welcome Bryguy,

 

You will have such a great time at the pen show! (Why do I have the vision of a child in a candy store?) Not only will you get to see, touch, and use more pens then you've ever seen in your life in one room but you will be able to chat with scores of people who share this enjoyable hobby.

Hi Bryan,

Welcome to FPN.

 

We have a local pen group here in the Massachusetts, Maine & New Hampshire area. We're called, The Boston Pen People and our site will be up shortly. You can always check here on FPN regarding meeting schedule.

 

The New England Pen show is scheduled for June 14-16 so you might want to plan to come into Boston for that. Special rates at the hotel where the show is would save a few hours of commuting time for you too.

 

Enjoy the sites - both of them.

-S-
