In Topic: Swan 1060 Leverless Fountain Pen

I think it has an 18 in it. I might take it apart and see if I can jam a 20 in there.

Maybe that is why it does not take in the ink. The pen in the video was fitted with a No 21 necked sac. You will need the larger sac so the bar inside connects to and twists the sac inside.

Pretty! I have a very similar leverless. Only 2 cap bands though. It has one of the nicest and most impractical (for the pen) nibs I've ever used. Its a flexible stub and the thing holds almost no ink.

Thanks, yes there were different variants of this model. Flexible stub, sounds great to me. This one holds a fair amount of ink, has your pen got a smaller sac installed ?

i have a ballpoint and pencil made by them, truly lovely and very well made. I hope I can get the fountain pen to match.

Yes they are very well made pens in lovely materials. Good luck with the fountain pen.

My original point that i was trying to convey was that the newbie or the one pen man/women do not need to go out and buy all the tools, equipment and supplies to simply get one pen serviced. 


So why is it that you felt the need to impugn the reputation of a well-respected repairperson in order to make that point? 




That is why i find it amusing, i did not "impugn" anyone. Believe me if i would have wanted to then i would, i am more than capable for speaking up for myself. Maybe some people are a little to quick to criticize others.


You have a great day

I do not believe the claim is that only Ron's original recipe is best or necessary. But paranoid straw men indeed did not advance the chat.

Hi David


Some straw men may not take the subject of pens as serious as others, and may find the comments rather predictable and yes

(No 7 in Losing Debater's Manual) rather amusing. Therefore is seems rather pointless to make any advances in the chat.
