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

      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.
