Parts

Like most people who have worked with fountain pens I have accumulated a lot of junk. On this page I have listed some parts that may be useful to others, but that I do not classify as junk and I present some of these parts for sale. When a part offered is not one-of-a-kind, for example, pressure bars or pocket clips, condition varies because virtually all offerings are authentic vintage parts. I will send the best one available at the time. All parts have been reconditioned to the extent possible. For example, gold fill or gold plated vintage parts have been gold plated to eliminate brassing. Prices do not include postage.

    [58 pressure bar (see above) not included in giveaway.]



    Because the color rings on the caps of Waterman's #5 and #7 red
    ripples generally do not age well (most are some combination of cracked, crazed and discolored)
    I sell replacement rings as well as pairs of the white border bands.
    Rings are $40 each and the white border bands are $15/pair.


    I also have an assortment of original rings, none of which are, of course, perfect.
    I will sell the originals to any purist who wishes to replace their original ring with another (fragile) original.
    The price is the same as that of my repros - $40.
    I assume these are originals because of the crazing and splitting - no guarantees.
    They are, however, guaranteed to be original to me.

    Project Pens
    These are nearly complete pens (many of them are complete pens).
    With a bit of work many of them should be able to be converted into acceptable writing instruments.
    They are great for practice or simply for their parts.
    There are, however, no guarantees on any of them.


    Parker Duofold Big Red - Duofold Senior - 1928 (5-1/2").
        
    A classic Big Red made of Parker's plastic. It has a couple of flaws, neither of which interferes with writing.
    The pen is complete except for a sac. The cap is nice and shiny, but it had two lip cracks which I sealed (no guarantees).
    The nib is a fantastic 1.2 mm stub nib. It writes beautifully. Careful inspection of it shows a tight crack below the breather hole.
    The pressure bar and the button filler have been gold plated.
    $135

    Waterman 55 BCHR (Black Chased Hard Rubber) (5-1/2").
        
    The main attraction here is the #5 Waterman nib. I dipped it and it is pretty flexible and smooth.
    The pen is complete except for a sac and it is missing the pocket clip.
    The chasing is fantastic, especially on the barrel. The barrel imprint is very crisp.
    $75


    Waterman 55 BCHR (Black Chased Hard Rubber) (5-1/2").
        

    There are a couple of very nice features of this pen.
    The nib is fairly flexible and smooth.
    It has beautiful engraved gold filled band around the barrel.
    This engraving on this wide band is so ornamental that I cannot read it.
    The pen is complete except for a sac. It is not pristine, but in decent condition.
    $135


    Waterman 52 BCHR (5-1/2").
        

    The #2 Waterman Ideal New York nib is flexible and smooth writing (I dipped it).
    The pen is in very good condition, no cracks or chips. The pocket clip is in excellent condition.
    If the barrel was chased it is now worn. The chasing on the cap is, however, worn so they match pretty well.
    The pen is complete except for a sac.
    $70


    Waterman 52 BCHR (5-1/2").

    The #2 Waterman Ideal New York nib is flexible and a very smooth writer.
    The pen is in very good condition, no cracks or chips. The barrel and cap match, both are smooth BHR.
    The pocket clip is in excellent condition.
    The pen is complete except for a sac.
    $125


    Waterman 12 PSF (5-3/8").

    Good condition - no cracks or dings. Gold trim (pocket clip and lever). The clip is in great condition.
    The nib is very flexible, but, unfortunately, it needs re-tipping.
    (Waterman #2 nibs are easy to come by and inexpensive, but this one is very flexible.)
    The chasing on the cap is stronger than the barrel. Could be a mismatch, but they fit together perfectly.
    The pen is complete except for a sac.
    Compare with another.
    $95


    Waterman 12 PSF (5-3/8").
            

    The pen itself is in very good condition - no cracks or dings. The black hard rubber is still pretty black.
    The nib is the wrong nib. It is a Sheaffer two-tone that writes pretty smoothly (I dipped it).
    (Of course, Waterman #2 nibs are easy to come by and relatively cheap in case the buyer wants a proper nib.)
    The pen is complete except for a sac. This model did not have a pocket clip.
    $50


    Early Conklin Lever Filler (4-1/4").

    This is one of the first lever fillers that Conklin made (early 20's).
    It is in good condition with a few marks to prove its antiquity.
    There is no brassing because I gold plated the small amount that was present on the clip.
    It lacks only a sac to make it ready-to-write.
    It does not have the proper nib. It is marked "Durium" (whatever that is). I did, however, dip it
    and it writes very smoothly so I left it on the pen. I think an attractive feature of this pen as a project
    is that the nib can easily be swapped out for inexpensive, i.e. small, easy to obtain, nibs. For example,
    it is relatively easy to find flexible Waterman 2 nibs that should fit this pen.

    $75


    Striped Parker Duofold (4-5/8").
        
    This pen is sometimes called the second generation Duofold.
    It is in good shape cosmetically, but the nib needs replacement or re-tipping.
    This is an opportunity to work on the filling system of a Duofold
    and to replace a nib on an inexpensive pen.
    $25


    Parker 45 (I think)
    This pen is in excellent shape except it is missing the band on the barrel.
    The cap appears to be in near-perfect condition.
    Despite the missing band the cap screws on as it should.
    There are no cartridges or converter.

    $25


    Parker Vacumatic 5".
        
    This pen seems to have all its essential parts, but likely is not working (I didn't try it).
    Here is your chance to try your skill at fixing vacs.
    The only thing I can find that is missing cosmetically is the lower cap band.
    $25


    Waterman Taperite.
    This one appears to be complete except for the sac.
        

    Nothing wrong with it that I can find.
    There is a personalization on the barrel.
    The metal cap is in good condition.
    $25


    Sheaffer Balance Oversize. Lever filler. 1930's.
             
    Nothing need be done on this one. Everything works fine. It has a sac.
    The only problem (minor) is the lever (see pic below). It works as it is though.

    I used it for several weeks. It is an excellent daily writer (M nib).
    The nib appears to be in great condition.
    $75


    Conklin Endura Black & Bronze flattop (4-7/8").

    This is the standard size conklin flattop.
    The pen is complete except for a sac. Install one and you should have a nice daily writer.
    There is no brassing and the nib is a smooth medium (I dipped it). Everything else looks ok.
    $125


    Black plastic Waterman #7 - Purple nib. Lever filler. 1930's.

    The barrel is near-perfect although I have not checked the nib (it has iridium).
    The barrel imprint is very crisp and it has the purple dot on the end with the 7.
    The project is that the cap is missing the clip. So - if you are willing
    to use it without a clip or are industrious enough to replace the clip you
    have a very nice pen. There are a few teeth marks on the cap.
    $195


    Parker Lucky Curve pen. Smaller than most Lady Duofolds.

    Everything in good condition except the cap lip.
    Check out the barrel imprint!
    The lip was chipped so I shortened it to even it out.
    The pressure bar as been gold plated in an attempt to eliminate corrosion.
    Iridium looks good. You add the sac and you have a pen.
    $75


    Sheaffer White Dot ballpoint desk pen only - no base, no refill.
        
    Everything appears to be in good condition.
    Install a refill and you have a good desk pen.
    $20


    Waterman overlay eyedropper. 0512/POC on the end of the barrel.
        
    Very flexible Waterman #2 nib. Great writer.
    Makeshift cap that fits perfectly.
    Here is my interpretation of the code: 0512/POC (see David Nishimura's web site)
    1 + POC = screw-cap eyedropper. Correct.
    2 = #2 nib. Correct.
    5 = full overlay, solid gold (I don't believe it. There is no hallmark.)
    0 = gold filled (much more likely)
    $125


    Conklin Student Pen.
        
    This is actually a complete pen, but I am selling it for parts because it
    has a blemish near the fill lever. Otherwise it is OK. Sold As Is though.
    For comparison pen click here.
    $150


    Ringtop pen - missing ring - mystery manufacturer.

    Very good condition with a Warrented nib.
    The J-bar was cleaned and gold plated in an attempt to eliminate further corrosion.
    $35


    Swan #2 lever filler with fantastic flexible stub (or oblique) nib.
        
    Complete except for the sac.
    Good condition considering it is more than 100 years old.
    The attraction here is the great nib - superb writer.
    I used it for awhile and then lost it. It resurfaced so I decided to sell it as a project pen.
    Just put in a sac and it is ready-to-write.
    It had a couple of cracks in the cap lip which I sealed with black stuff.
    (It looks pretty good. I may have learned something.)
    $55


    Free stuff
    While cleaning up I found these pens and parts that someone may be able to use.
    If so, they are yours for the postage.
    (They may, however, be worth exactly what you pay for them - you decide.)

        
    Sheaffer of unknown (to me) style. Unrestored.

    $0


    Below are some free miscellaneous parts that may contradict my statement above about not including junk.
    But - one person's junk may be another's treasure if you are in need of an emergency part.
    So - I offer this "junk" in case you have a void that one of these caps or barrels can fill until you can
    find that correct replacement on ebay or at a show and make no apology for the offering.
    In addition to the parts pictured I have some sections and feeds that I can also offer to help out.


    Assortment of caps one of which you might be able to use.
    If you need it you will know which is which.
    Don't bother to ask - none have clips.
    Sorry - all gone except the green one on the right.
    $0



    Assortment of barrels one of which you might be able to use.
    If you need it you likely will know which one you need.
    The (previously) green duofold barrel second from bottom is a flattop.
    The discolored Moderne Black & Pearle is a streamlined.
    (Lever boxes removed long ago.)
