    Default Sheaffer snorkel repair in Australia?

    Greetings all. Some years ago I acquired a snorkel when my pastor was throwing out a cup of pens he'd found and I happened to be in the church office at the time. I thought it looked like an interesting pen so asked if I could liberate it from the rubbish.

    Fast forward several years and it's written really nicely but has always had very small ink capacity and very rough feeling internals. Having now read a bit I'm surprised I was able to get it to fill at all! It now sits unused and I'd like to change that.

    So, does anyone know of pen repairers in Australia who could handle resacking or otherwise overhauling my snorkel?

    Hugh is a Sheaffer collector. I'd ask him:

    There are a couple in Melbourne, Melbourne Vintage Pens (vintagepens.com.au) and Old Post Office Pens. I'm happy to do it up as well for the postage and parts cost but in wouldn't be till Feb. next, I've got a few to do myself and have to order parts in.

    Regards
    Hugh

    Thanks for the responses all. Life got a bit busy at the end of the year and truth be told I forgot I'd started this thread. @HughC , I'll send you a PM for details.

    I'll be very glad to have it going again.

    The post office pens is now The Pensmith.
    Can anyone help with the supply of SPARE PARTS in Australia?
