Mont Blanc Parts



Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm new to this forum.

 

I need someone's advise on my Mont Blanc

Fountain Pen.

 

I have a Mont Blanc 149 that I really like

and it is a Vintage Pen pre 1991 as it does not

have a serial number.

 

My other Mont Blanc Fountain Pen

uses a ink converter.

 

Recently my Pen came apart and a very small gold ring

was later found. At that time I did not realize it was from the Pen. In any case the Pen now comes apart and I can not find the small gold ring which screws into the Pen.

 

Should I send it back to Mont Blanc for repair or can I buy the small gold ring somewhere ?

 

Thanks

Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell. What gold ring came off? How did the 149 come apart? There isn't a gold ring that screws onto most 149s (there may have been a wedding set 149 that had a gold ring as pert of the cap band but I'm pretty sure that was only on the 146).

Hello and welcome to FPN. :W2FPN:

 

I too am puzzled. Did the gold ring come off the pen that has a converter? I fear that the only way to get it fixed will be to send it to Montblanc as parts aren't normally sold anywhere.

You can sometimes find a section for the converter pen on ebay, and you would have to pay upwards of $50 for it. If you send the pen to Montblanc for service, it will cost quite a bit, the last I sent one it was $80 plus shipping. Typically they send a replacement pen with your old nib that they put into the replacement. For this reason, you might hesitate to send a pen with an older piston mechanism, because they will send you back a new pen with a new mechanism.

 

You might be lucky enough to find the gold clutch ring on the internet. This ring makes a friction hold with the inner cap. There is an inner cap inside the cap that seals the nib and keeps the nib moist. The cap topper with the white star screws in to hold the inner cap in place.

I ended up missing the ring of a MB 32something, and Penboard.de wanted 35 E....which was more than I paid for it, some 7 years ago.

MB wanted at least 80E just to look at it.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

I've been trying to help my boss repair a 1960s 149 with a cracked barrel. It's a family heirloom so he'd like to make it functional.

Should he just throw in the towel and send it to the factory? I don't quite know why but he's reluctant to send it out of California.

It's doubtful that Montblanc can do anything for a 1960s Montblanc but it's worth asking them. Brad Torelli might be able to help stateside.

      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.
