If one is thinking about repairing fountain pens
Permalink Closed


where does one start? Are there required videos, websites, books? I've seen a few mentioned here, but I don't know where to begin!
I'm interested in acquiring some vintage pens to tinker with. I've only ever used cartridge or converter pens, so this world of levers and vacuum sacks is alien to me.

Don't forget that there are some great links here to YouTube vids! ("Sticky's")

There are also a couple of good books- Oldfield's Fountain Pen Repair book (binder form), and "Da Book" from Frank Dubiel.

Some of it is dated, but all good start points!
Some good tips and advice from "the trenches"
