    Default Newbie in NW Missouri

    Hi - First post here. My wife and I both enjoy fountain pens - she mostly is interested in doing ornate penmanship and she's getting pretty good at it. My main interest is to find old pens that do not work and restore them to good order. I have tackled a few using You Tube Videos for guidance and actually succeeded on a couple of vintage Eversharps but I also have run into trouble with pens that do not want to come apart, one with a fill lever that is completely stuck though there is nothing inside the barrel to interfere with operating the lever (the barrel is completely empty except for the J bar). And there are a couple I just don't understand at all.

    But it's all fun; I'll be putting my specific questions on the repair sub-forum in the coming days.

    Glad to be here!
