Finding Replacement Nib For Waterman Le Man 100, Ideally Stub



islandink

Recommended Posts

Is it still possible to get stub nibs from Waterman or do you know of any other source of replacement nibs for the Waterman 100 (besides random luck on ebay)? I would love to find a factory stub but would also be happy with a medium that could be custom ground to a stub

 

And if so, any idea of the cost? many thanks

Have you tried contacting Waterman's service center in your country?

 

Beyond that, keep an eye on the FPN classifieds and eBay.

As Koyote advised, you could try Sanford/Waterman in your country, but I doubt they will still have parts for that pen left.

Waterman concentrated repairs some years ago to the plant in France, and this now is moved to (or will move soon?) to Poland.

 

Even nibswaps on new pens had to go through France, although sometimes the local branch would just swap a unit with a new pen they had in stock (as has happened to me..)

 

There are companies that still have stocks on nibunits on past models, so you could try to google the internet.

Sometimes shops like Nibs.com carry them. (just checked, not at this moment)

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

      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
