Thanks to the folks who are making this happen!

 

We're taking two tables and bringing a big mix of vintage, new old stock and new pens. Expect some freebies at the Peyton Street Pens tables, and special show prices for Rangas and Dukes.

 

Thank you thank you!

Exciting stuff. Already doing good deeds around the house to ensure I can go with a fist full of cash and the wife's blessing.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

not as much fun, plus the less limited nature of plastic makes it harder to say no. :lol:

Wise, Zaddick, on all counts.

 

I should send in a general attendee for a day and go admire all the shiny. Not sure I'll have any need by then, as I'm feeling as if I have all the pens I can use.

Lou,

Think of it like a candy shop. The PPPC mini-show that we went to in Pacifica on steroids.

....droooool :puddle: :puddle:

 

Time to expand your collection.

You need a Touchdown to go with your Snorkel, and maybe a Targa for the inlaid nib ;)

 

My wife and I paid for the trader pass, so we can go in early. I just have to learn to make a quick decision, and not THINK for a long time trying to make up my mind. :wacko:

I'm saving my pennies ... better make that saving my quarters.

It sounds like many good things.

 

I have a Touchdown... I got a couple at the PPPC show. And a lever-filler.

 

But a Targa or Imperial... or a "51" in Medium... or a sparkly Vacumatic... or a Pelikan... or a century old eyedropper....

 

... my housemates think I'm crazy. :)

 

Yes, I'll have to go. Not sure my collection requires the trader pass, but I'll be there.

 

Are you getting a room at the hotel so you can be there the moment the doors open?

No, I live maybe 5 miles from the hotel.

So we will drive in early.

If I can change my flight without too big a hit to my wallet, then I will be there - driving in from near-enough by.

Don't worry, that feeling will soon pass.

Feel free to take your time. I am happy to swoop in while you stare. :lol:

 

This will be me -> :bunny01:

 

this will be you -> :gaah:

 

OK, just some good natured ribbing. My wife can tell you i actually take for-freakin-ever to make a decision. Thank goodness for mobile phones so she has something to do while I stare at pens.

Unfortunately that has happened to me more than once.

The last time was me taking forever to decide to buy a WHITE Lamy Joy. And by then, most of the US dealers were sold out, and I had to pay premium price (MSRP) and no converter rather than the discounted price (with converter) that I could have paid a couple months before.

A question on show etiquette - I am hoping to buy a pen or two and perhaps get one of my current pens adjusted. Friday would be the best day for me, so can I buy a trade ticket and do the things I want on Friday? Or is the trade time exclusively for people planning to take a table and trade?

I always go the first day possible. A Trader Pass allows you to come and go all days. You may purchase as many pens as you want with the pass.

      @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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
