Topics I've Started

Waterman inkvue desk pen

07 April 2016 - 07:49 PM

Restoring an inkvue Type 1 desk pen, how is the section connected to the barrel, threaded as type 1 regular FP, or glued (one piece) as in type 2 inkvue FP.  So far I am not able to separate the section from the barrel. 

 

 


1944 Parker Imperial section removal

17 March 2016 - 12:37 AM

I have a Parker Imperial in black that I want to restore, how is the section connected to the barrel, is it threaded as all other Vacumatics, or solvent welded?   I don't want to ruin a unique pen.

 

How was the Imperial barrel manufactured, did Parker cut a third generation Vacumatic barrel to remove external threads, and then cut internal threads to connect the elongated section?

 

Thanks for the experts' response.
