Restoration of your vintage fountain pens
Lever and button fillers $ 20.00*
Parker Vacs including Parker 51 (either Vac or Aero); $ 25.00*
Sheaffer Snorkels & TD's $ 25.00*
Service / bench fee for minor adjustments or repairs $ 15.00*
(not covered by other services)
I work on all lever filling pens, Sheaffer, Waterman, Wahl, Parker and others. (Waterman Inkvue lever fillers will be $ 30.00)
*I do not restore piston filling pens or Sheaffer Vac filling pens (These have a slender rod extending from the blindcap).
* These prices include all rubber parts, sacs, diaphragms, gaskets, 'O' rings needed to get your pen in working order as well as nib alignment and tuning your nib for a nice line.
Other parts such as pressure bars, missing clips, tassies, jewels and end caps will have an extra charge for parts if available. I maintain a good supply of parts and have contacts within the pen community for parts I do not have. I will contact you before any parts are ordered or installed unless you have already specified parts are needed.
E-mail me for pricing and other services offered.
Basic restoration includes a light polish. I will also buff out scratches and light bite marks upon request. I mask off imprints and cap band and levers for buffing on a larger buffing wheel and take great care with buffing.
I will consider pens or parts in trade for repair work.
My turn around is usually less than 2
weeks for pens sent to be back in your hand, unless parts are required
that must be ordered.
I can provide many nib services
including straightening, smoothing, flow problems, etc. I also smooth
scratchy nibs, restore alignment to mis-aligned nib tines and although I
do not replace iridium, I can smooth broken nib tips to a smooth writing nib if a replacement nib is not available or if you prefer it.
If all you need is alignment or nib smoothing or resetting a nib the cost is $ 15.00.
