Where Should I Send A Sheaffer Snorkel Fountain Pen For Repair?

My grandfather recently gave me a sheaffer snorkel pen and pencil set and when I tried to fill the pen it didn't work. I have no idea how to repair fountain pens and I'm looking for a reputable place to send the pen for repair. Any recommendations?

I have met Sherrell on several occasions and she has repaired three or four of my Sheaffer's. She is a real pro and quite knowledgeable about Sheaffer history too.

I certainly won't debate that Sherrell is a "Big Dog" Sheaffer repair person.

 

OTOH, I would think that Danny Fudge could also do a Snorkie restore for a little less money and maybe a quicker turnaround if you didn't have Sherrell do it in person at a show.

 

HOWEVER,

 

Pens gifted to one by their family members cross a pretty important line for me. IMO, they are more deserving of Special Attention than say that "just another Snorkie" you may have found on Fleabay.

 

Yep, a Snorkie given to Me by My Grandfather (hypothetically speaking) would go forthwith to either Sherrell or Ron Zorn.

 

No doubt about it.

I have had excellent results from Martin Ferguson at Martin's Pens. His web site is http://www.martinspens51.com/

 

Martin not only is an expert on snorkels, but does a very detailed seminar on snorkel and PFM repair at many pen shows. Anyone who wants to try their hand at snorkel repair should attend his seminar.

 

No financial interest, just a very satisfied customer.

I've had Danny Fudge restore several Sheaffer Snorkels and he's always done an excellent job, quickly, and inexpensively. I'd definitely use him again.

I had several people at the DC show tell me to go to Martin's table with my Snorkel Statesman. Talked to him around 2:30 in the afternoon on Sunday, and the turn around time was about an hour and a half, even with several people's pens in the queue before me. Pretty satisfied with the result. No affiliation otherwise (and I couldn't even tell you offhand who the people recommending him were, since I don't know).

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
