Goulet Pen Nibs In Parkers?



InterInk

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a question. I have a Parker Frontier and I'd like to swap a nib. Recently I saw an interesting ad, goulet pen co. has made their own nibs(#6 nib). The question is does GP nibs fit into Parker frontier?

Why bother?

 

For about $25 or less you can get a nib master to mold your Frontier nib just the way you want it.

 

To pull a Frontier nib, you'll need a good repair person, someone who knows both the Frontier, its feed, and the Goulet nib. What's the advantage? You will pay the same, and I don't know that Goulet makes a better nib than Parker.

i just did a quick check, the feed has a diameter of 6.3mm, the Goulet Nib is a #6 Jowo nib so the size is 6mm. Noodler's Nibs are 6.3mm so that may work, however, the length of the nib is too long for the pen. In short cannot be done. Just for the sake of asking, what sort of nib you have and what you want it to be?

Frontier nibs unscrew and then pull out from the section, like Sonnet nibs. The nib is attached to the feed like a Sonnet nib is, clipping on to the feed.

 

Why bother? There is a penpartsstore ebay seller offering Frontier nibs starting about $10 with the section. I bought a "gothic" italic and a fine. Both perfect. Because of some other bidder, I ended up paying about $12 each plus shipping. For the nib plus section, a screw-in solution, seems like a decent deal.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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
