Hello From San Diego, California

Hi, I was going through my late fathers desk when I came upon an old Shaeffer Balance fountain pen as well as several others. I did some online research and disassembled the pen, replaced the ink sac cleaned the nib and now the the pen works perfectly. What brought me to this forum was my search for a Sailor 95th Anniversary Realo pen, still looking. Any advice on how to find that pen would be greatly appreciated. I've also decided to work on penmanship. I'm going through Spencerian penmanship workbooks, any suggestions on material in penmanship would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bill Kiel

Hello, Kiel, and welcome to FPN. Lots of fellow Californians here.

I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

I just purchased a Shaeffer 500 vacuum fill pen on eBay for about $15.00. The filling rod does not extend. Is it worth it to repair? I was planning on putting it in my heated ultrasonic cleaner, is that ok?

 

Thanks,
