General News!



1.)


The French have discovered Fountain Pen Magic. Yesterday, there were almost 100 French visitors. Their forum website is almost a copy of the fountain pen geek site, no comment. My French is very rusty, there were nice compliments, that much I could understand. I would have liked to respond to some, but subscribing in French... no go!



So, if there are any French in this forum / site... do you think you could help me signing in? Do they have an English translation of their site?



Now, the final question is: Where are the Germans?



2.)


Have you noticed, there is a section on design towards the end of my site? The articles have more of a theoretical, philosophical and spiritual lean... with practical applications, of course. Yesterday, I published a chapter on Aesthetics in my paper Design Quality.

Hi to all!

 

I am writing on a new chapter on my website. It is about the reservoir. The technical side of it, as you can imagine. B) So that I can compare the different styles I need their volumes, which I have found information for most but not the piston and bladder converter. I would need their volumes (ml) and the actual height/length to which they fill up and the mechanical length of the volume, which would be a smidgen longer. :rolleyes:

 

Sure, I could buy one each. However, so far, I have always received your help, otherwise, adding it all up, it would have been quite costly. :huh:

 

BTW, I published a new chapter, which is about the cap. If you have a moment, enjoy reading. :rolleyes:

What measurements and from which pens would you like the information from?

Ooo. I always enjoy reading your blog. Will take a look now. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with us.

 

:)

i am glad you like it. What really helps me is your feedback. You see, I am writing from the view of an ingeneer, which can be over the top, sometimes. Through your feedback I learn how to write for my readers. Because that's my motivation.

The volume of a bladder converter... I would need the volume (ml) and the actual height/length to which they fill up and the mechanical length of the volume, which would be a smidgen longer. :rolleyes: I only need averages, therefore, just throw some data at me and I'll do the rest. B) It does not matter which pens they are.

 

As I am writing the new chapter, I found another point I like to know. The distance between the tip of the nib and the end of the feed/start of the reservoir. I want to calculate the hydrostatic pressure resting on the nib. Same as above, any measurements are good. ;)

 

By the way, have you ticked on my site to be a follower? This way you get an email message, automatically, whenever something new is happening.

Unlike you, I am not an engineer. My measurements are shown above. The converter, if filled though a pilot pen fills almost full so probably 50mm instead of 55mm. I tend to fill mine using a syringe. Filled to the brim (not advisable) I'm getting 0.9ml.

 

This does't sound right though.

 

* I've just used the same syringe to measure the volume of a full international short cartridge and it showed 0.7ml - I've a feeling the units are not ml but something else.

** This is not really helpful is it? :rolleyes: :unsure: :blush:

it always helps... :rolleyes: your drawing is excellent and livens up the scenery... you can draw a straight line, which is more than many ingeneers can :lol: and your measurements are correct: the short international is 0.75ml ;) and what I am after are practical results, not always the technically possible

 

thanks again.

:) Yay glad to help.

 

Please feel free to put out more specific requests if you need them. I know your findings will be for the greater good.
