Uk Nibmeister?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Sorry, I know this has come up a few times. Looking for someone in the UK who could repair make work my Visconti Rembrandt.

 

(I've posted about it elsewhere, but never been happy with it. I think it has one tine longer than the other so needs a bit of grinding and probably work on the feed / feed replacement. Tempted to get it ground to a stub as well.)

 

I've seen mention of Oxonian aka John Sorowka but can't find him searching FPN members. Also saw mention of PenPractice.com but doesn't seem to cater for repair or modern pens.

 

Any tips?

Hope you got sorted out, John and Annabelle, looked to be busy all day. The show had an excellent turn out, I had a ball, meeting again all the people, not UK based.

Thanks all for your help, much appreciated.

 

Not much chance of travel for pleasure at the moment: four kids at home under 6yrs old...family motto: "embrace the chaos" :wacko: !

 

Anyway, thank's for the PMs, I'll see what I can sort.

Aha - I've just come across the name of John Sorowka as a UK-based nib meister, as I have a Lamy I'd like tinkered with by someone who knows what they're doing. I didn't know if such things can be done via the post, or if one has to be with the nibmeister in person. Any tips of accessing such skills would be much appreciated. Many thanks Gerry

      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
    • Daneaxe
      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
