Mix And Match Hacks

That 271 cap is about the closest I've seen to a Pelikan-style knockoff haha. Nice touch using the brown demonstrator section with the pen! Even the gold trim rim matches nicely.

OK this is one that I recently discovered by experimentation ... The Jinhao 159's clip had almost always been criticized ( though I do not actually had any against it ) and the quest had always been for a replacement .. guess what ... I've found one .. sort of ... I take the clip off the Penton F20 Limited opaque colour version ( the F19 Limited opaque colour version should have the same clip ) and I was just checking if something can go with something else and viola ... yes one can screw off the 159 clip and trim ring and put onto it this clip, its external dimension is smaller thus if not putting trim ring on it will show a gap but visually and in use not really noticeable. For further work I've found that one can do some DIY and flatten the clip tessie ring part a bit and then the original trim ring can go on top and the finale screw in and it will all be nice. By the clip itself it will be a bit too thick to get the trim ring on. Not the best looking ut perhaps not as gaudy as the original.

45074769561_5cd4cb320c_k.jpgGui-Guan 310 on Wing Sung 62 barrel with a Yangtze 206 cap, on Flickr

 

Well I have myself to blame to need to come up with this one, my Gui-Guan 310 actually was working fine but then I accidentally got the cap flying off the desk and out of the window ( 6 floors up ) , needless to say the pen had to stay in the parts bin for quite a while ; the barrel, finally I've got it to made a desk pen of sort as illustrated before, and for the actual pen part section and all ( its a C/C filler with the smallest triumph nib on Chinese fountain pen), I did finally get it done up with this, a field green barrel off a Wing Sung 62, and the pale teal cap from a Yangtze 206. This actually feel better than the original 310 though not quite as robust ( the 310 is all steel on barrel and cap )

I need some hack help. My first Huafu 186 was so nice that I bought a spare, but sadly the nipple inside the section snapped off when I removed the converter from the new one. Now I'm stuck with a great nib and nice aluminium cap and barrel, but a totally useless section.

 

Two questions:

 

- Are there any pens out there that will take the 186 nib or both feed and nib? The nib is bigger at the base than the current #5 size, so I couldn't get it to fit in my Jinhaos.

 

- Are there any pens out there with sections that will fit the 186's barrel and cap? I'd hate to waste them!

 

Thanks for any assistance.

well well, might as well get yet another 186 !! Ok that's the easy way out ... now the nib and feed , plenty of Hero's old 1990's model use this larger size nib, but off the head I cannot say which particular one, I believe it will go into plenty of the vintage 26 model also. As for fixing the barrel and cap with a new section ... hmm some of those old models would screw in but would not fit, the 186 got a pretty short section, and equally limited space inside the cap. If I recall it right only the old Hero 395 ( 1990's ) actually would screw on and allow the cap to close. But the 395 section is chromed and it use the smaller de facto size 26 / no.5 nib so it will drastically change the aesthetic and how the pen might feel but I recall it work straight alright.

 

Not around my cache of pens so I cannot be sure, back home this evening I will try them

This is the problem I ran into. For example, the Hero 5028 section will screw in to the 186 barrel fine but it's too long to fit in the cap.

Crisis averted! My Selmy that recently arrived in the mail had a generic mediocre nib, but the Huafu 186's nib fit perfectly! Now I've got a beautiful icy-looking pen with a great semi-flex nib to start off the winter. :D

This uses the section, nib, and feed from a PenBBS 322, and the acrylic bodies from the Jinhao 51a. The cartridge collar of the 322 section is too long, so I cut a little less than half of it off with a rotary tool.

Golden Star / Glod Star / Jinxing 703 had very well made pen parts but poorly designed and poorly made cap and a somewhat below average barrel. Some mix and match retrofitting thus ~ vintage Hero Calligraphy nib, Lily 715 cap and barrel double jewel

The gold cap and acrylic go so nicely together!

 

Any idea where I can get one of those black cat pen rests? I've been searching all over to no avail. I like how simple and understated it is.

There are several sellers on Taobao offering these. Here is one of the better priced options:

Now I just need to find something similar with a different animal so I don't rip off your photo design. :)

      @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.
