Sula Jane and Earl currently have their leather mini pen sleeves at a significantly reduced price.

I got this from ebay for my mini. It's nice and everything. But be careful with the mini and leather sleeve. The o-ring for stopping the cap when posting can slip off when pulling the pen out of the leather pouch. Now I have to figure out the o-ring size and where to get a replacement.

My local Ace Hardware has a set of plastic trays full of various sized of small o rings. I 'd suggest you take the pen in and find one that fits. The Ace people are very helpful with this and the prices are very reasonable. Choice 2 is Contact Twisbi, they are a very Customer Service oriented company. Other Hardware store probably have small rubber goomies (what we called them when we rebuilt VW Bug engines), I'd ask. Jim

When I lost my o-ring last night, I emailed Phillip Wang at TWSBI (USA) right the way. Being an impatient engineer, I took out my caliper to measured it myself. ID = 10mm, OD = 12mm, thickness = 1mm. I just ordered 100 of these suckers from the www.theoringstore.com for $11 total, including shipping. If anybody needs one, contact me. Just pay me for whatever the post office charges me.


by the way, the 2 o-rings (1 by the grip section, the other by the filler knob) are identical.

ps: i am a noob on this forum. if i don't respond to your pm, that's because i haven't figured out how to check it, yet. :P

      @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.
