Nib And Feed Parts For Restoration

Recommended Posts

Dear community,

 

I recently purchased a Mabie Todd L205/47 which I want to restore. The original nib and feed, which I believe would have been a Swan #2, has been replaced with a #1. These are, of course, too small for the section, so the nib does not sit snugly in the section. Can anyone steer me in the right direction to find a replacement nib and feed? The sac I'll need shouldn't be as tricky to locate, but tips are always welcome!

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Gwen

Ah, was that one on ebay last week?

 

I have one of these myself - I love the "mosaic" pattern. I have some Swan 2 nibs and feeds. As others here may confirm I do fix a few sick pens here and Mabie Todd is really my "thing" - hence my moniker.

 

Please PM me if this is of interest.

 

best wishes

 

Cob

Thanks a mil, Cob and Empty of Clouds!

 

I'm excited about the idea of making disparate parts whole again. I will follow up when I return from my travels. I'd love to work with vintage pens more and learn from people like you. There's not much of an interest where I live, I'm afraid, so forums like this make for a modicum of connection.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
