Lamy 2000 Drop



Recommended Posts

Can't get the pictures to post for some reason, but during a ill advised moment allowing someone to use my Lamy 2000, it was dropped.

 

I pretty much never let anyone use my pens, but for some odd reason I said sure and let them write with it. Nib down onto tile from standing height, and the nib that was an "A" now looks a lot like an upside down "L" bent right over the feed.

 

 

So, now I ask for a suggestion of whom I should ship it off to so that it can be repaired? I had been debating getting it ground to a cursive italic, so I will probably have that done at the same time. If it matters, I live in Virginia, but I am not really worried about distance if I can be confident that it will come back writing "better than new." Turn around time isn't critical either. Done right the first time is more important than a speedy return for a pen that will be round tripped because of a need for a rework.

 

 

Thanks in advance for any help. I will get pictures of the travesty up when I can.

Oh, dear, my sympathies, I did that once myself. Am fortunate that I repaired the pen myself. Took it apart, rebent the nib, and honed up the nib. The pen was already a cursive italic.

 

Think Tim Girdler would be an excellent choice for the job. Pendemonium also has excellent repair reputation and good turn-around time.

 

Best of luck,

Yours,

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

See you are in Virginia, Tim often does repair work on Saturdays at Bertram's Ink well in Rockville, MD.

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
