Saturday's chilly trip up to Portobello road wasn't bad for such a cold day!

I sold a few vintage pens, to tourists mainly, one of whom had come all the way from Australia, and had been told that he 'must' go and visit Henry at Portobello Market if he was able to on a Saturday, [he is a member of a local pen collector's club!] So, it was nice to think that I was that famous, if only locally! He bought two Conway Stewart pens, and went away very happy!

I was only offered three vintage pens to buy during the coarse of the day, Two Parker 51's, and a Bronze Striped medium size Sheaffer Balance pen with a military clip, and a feather-lite nib, in very good condition, which is now fully restored and is 'in stock'!

All in all, it was a good day!

Good morning BBS!

I can't honestly say whether I could do that sort of repair, but I would like to see it first anyway before attempting to do it.

Possibly see you up there then!

Truffle Finder. :) :D

I'm sure I will see you there at some point, but alas not with a cracked wood Omas - I wasn't going to pay that much!

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

I'm not exactly what one would call a 'fan' of New Year's Eve, [being an Alcoholic, in recovery!] but I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone who pops in here, a very Happy New Year.

Ever since this thread was started by GWP quite a few years ago, I don't think that anyone thought that it would run for as long as it has done, or that it would continue to be of interest to fountain pen lovers, as it has done. For me anyway, it has been a very enlightening journey, as I really did not realise [when this thread first started, a few years ago] that so many people knew or indeed 'had' heard of me!

 

Happy New Year!

Truffle Finder, [AKA Henry Simpole!] :P :)

Does anyone on here know much about a man called Du Clos?

Someone has sent one to me which needs major surgery doing to it!

Just thought that I'd ask, as I'd never heard of him. Does anyone know when the man died?

Hi there!

Today at portobello road, it seemed that most of my customers were out and about looking for Parker 51's! It is quite understandable really [they are exceptionally good working fountain pens], but not necessarily all on the same day!

I did sell some other types of pens during the course of the day, and despite there being 'planned engineering works going on on the Central Line, the rain held off, and the journey wasn't too disrupted.

Truffle Finder. :)

Henry, volume 2! Who woulda thunk?

 

Time for an infestation of warm fuzzies!

      @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.
