Hello everybody

No drawings around that I know of, and the arrows in general, let alone gold ones, are really hard to find now....

 

I asked around about having a die made so that I could punch them myself, but reached the conclusion that the cost for the die would be hard to recover, even before adding the cost of the gold plated sheet stock.

With a photo and a 61 in hand, a friend of mine was able to get a replacement made by a local jeweler.

 

 

Thats remarkable. I have had these arrows/darts become detached in the past and refitting them into the hood has always been an ordeal, never been 100% happy with the result because any adhesive has tended to lift the dart our of the recess.

If one had the exact dimensions making a fairly good copy is not impossible or prohibitly expensive. If any of the forum members would be kind enough to make a pencil trace or at least take a good photos of the arrow from the top it would help everybody.

These days with 3d printing many solutions are easier to achieve. One could make a 3d print and have it gold plated or even painted.

I have even bought several Chinese fountains pens with similar arrow trying to stick their arrow on the pen, but they are not the same shape or size. (oddly enough those pens turned out to be very good if not excellent writers, shape to break them really).

      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.
