Winner, Winner, Chicken...er, Need Clip For My New 3


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon (here) ladies and gentleman...


Okay, so I sprang for this pen on the bay of evilness and I knew it didn't have a clip. To me this isn't a big deal as I'm hoping I will love this pen and use it daily. But, where does one get a clip or can one get a clip for a Waterman 3 and if so, can a complete moron, such as myself do the repair?


The pen was cheap as it is (crudely) monogrammed.


Any and all help from this illustrious brain trust is much appreciated!!!!!


:wub: :wub: :wub:

So, what's your point?

To a new one, what? Clip? !!!


Yes, I'm still interested (tries to disguise herself as "someone else") in finding a clip for this pen...which I'm told has arrived!!! :bunny01:

English (British) humour I am afraid :rolleyes:


I once purchased a 52 without its clip thinking it would be an easy job finding a replacement part. No such luck, so I sold it clipless.


I think the problem is that if someone has one they tend to keep them for a pen that may come to them. I certainly would :blush:

Good to know. It will still write without a clip. ;)


Thanks Force!

Not worth putting any money into that pen, sorry to say.

The celluloid is starting to deteriorate at the top of the cap.

If you do find a clip, labor cost to replace it would run a good five times the pen's purchase price, and more than the cost of getting an intact pen of the same model, fully restored and ready to write.


If you want a user, go ahead and use it (though the nib is clearly bent from the photo, with misalignment of the tines, so I don't know how it will write). If you need a clip, best bet is to get a slip-on one.

Well, (bleep)! I'd like to work on straightening the nib, the heck with the cap. It's not bad as is, so fixed might be good!!


Thanks for saving me time and money!! :)

      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.
