Anyone Know How To Get This Repaired?



Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions about getting an old plunger filled desk pen repaired. I inherited it and want to see if I can get it working again. I'm in Charlotte, NC and don't know of any good pen repair shops here.

You need to send it to an online repairer of which there are several excellent ones within the US. If you want to find the nearest one to where you are you could search for Parker repairs. :)

Beautiful pen, Conan. There are a number of quality repair guys around that could get your vacumatic writing again.

The Triangle Pen Show is in Raleigh at the end of May. There will be several very capable pen restorers at the show and although they probably won't be repairing Parker Vacs you could chat with them and select one to send your pen to for the necessary work. The show's home page (link below) lists the vendors who will be there to give you some ideas. Both Danny Fudge and Ron Zorn have restored Parker Vacs for me and I was very happy with the work.

Thanks all. I've reached out to Ron Zorn since he's scheduled to be at the Triangle Pen show in Raleigh (1-2 hours away) in May.
