Sheaffer Fashion Ii Refill



linriyue

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

So, many years ago I received a fountain pen as a gift, which I have only recently been able to identify as the Sheaffer Fashion II. Since I had never used a fountain pen before, I left it untouched for many years until recently. The pen is completely dried up, and there is no cartridge nor converter in it. I have a few 'slim cartridges' that came with the gift bundle, but they are all dried up too.

 

Regardless, I tried to install the cartridge, but it wouldn't fit. There is something inside blocking it, and I have no idea what it is. As I am very eager to try using a fountain pen, I am in desperate need of your advice!

 

Thanks in advance.

Unless I have mis-identified the pen in my collection, the Fashion II takes regular Sheaffer cartridges and converters (my pen has the old squeeze converter, but I just tested it with a piston converter from a Levenger Seas [sheaffer Connaisseur]).

Looks like there may be a converter or cart still in the barrel, try sitting the barrel in warm water for a few minutes and see if it can be removed gently. Someone with a better memory than me will know which Fashion is which, I have the fatter fashion, but I do know there is a slimmer one and that can only take the slim converters and carts, same as the Targa slim. It might not even be a Sheaffer converter that is stuck up in there so just ease it out, the last thing you want is a broken converter stuck in a barrel, I came across a Parker 95 like that once - that was a fun afternoon!

It's not a 'Frankenpen'.....it is a bespoke design  :D

      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.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
