How can I bring the clip closer to the cap?

It's so simple, I can't believe that something like this has never occurred to me before. I actually avoided buying a few pens because of a bent clip, now I know what to do.

Thank you very much!

The description alone was precise enough, but seeing the pictures is (believing) reassuring.

You should know how grateful I am for your help if I tell that some of these pens had been waiting for this for a long time...

Cheers!

Thanks for the suggestions on this thread. I just fixed the clip on one of my Parker vacs. I used a letter opener instead of a key and placed a thin piece of paper under the clip against the pen to prevent any chance of scratching the pen body. Worked great!!!!

Did it work on a Junior Debutante clip? Mine is loose and its reaaaaally short.

I learned this trick watching Danny Fudge fix pens. It works well for most any clip.

Something similar in one of the Wahl-Eversharp service manuals too, on p.14:

(If you'll pardon a competitor appearing in your Esterbrook haven.)

And I didn't have the heart to tell her why.
And there wasn't a part of me that didn't want to say goodbye.

Thank you. I really enjoy these old catalogs.

      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.
