Can Someone Find Me A Body For This Nib?

I am not surprised they were appalled, given the information you got from one of their boutiques

Quite right, as stated right at the very start, they would have nothing to worry about if they were telling you the truth.

Glad it's all turned out happily.

I'm due to get my 149 back from MB which when I bought it arrived without any innards .... £60 is what I'll have to pay when I collect it and, as Chrissy hammered home, it'll be like receiving a brand new one when I get my hands on it.

Good luck!

As an afterthought, perhaps you could e-mail the link to this thread to the Athens MB Boutique staff ... they may start to change their customer service?

U will love the 149...it is an all round best of pens to own. It has only one drawback for me. The size!!! Simply too big for many hours of work. If u have a medium hand its a bit...

 

Well i hope u have a big hand. How did u get it with no guts?

I already did that. My first thought actually.

Just me exaggerating ... it just arrived without a piston, everything else was there ... and I challenged the auction house and they managed to negotiate a partial refund ... so not too much of a disaster.

 

I do like the 149, it sits nicely and writes beautifully (I'm almost ashamed to say that as of this week I now have three of them)

      @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.
