    Default Repair to Parker 51 Nib

    Good day forum members.
    I have a recently acquired aerometric P51 with a nib that requires a little work. A bit scratchy, and doesn't start writing readily.
    I do believe some tuning will fix the problem.
    Can the members here recommend someone in the continental USA who can remedy the problem?
    Many thanks, in advance.

    Are you able to post images of nib please.

    Top, bottom and side


    If it is not damaged, the fix may be easier than you think

    Indy Pen Dance was trained by Richard Binder, an ace. She -- Linda does the nib work -- is one of several well-regarded people.

    I use Josh Lax, the president of the Big Apple Pen Club, of which I am a member. Josh is very good. Among other work he has done, Josh repaired -- recovered from the dead -- a Parker 100 that had fallen point-down.

    One of the key advantages of a garage is the opportunity to create a highly organized space. With the right storage solutions such as shelves, cabinets, and overhead racks, you can arrange your belongings in a systematic and efficient manner. This makes it easier to find what you need, reduces clutter, and promotes a sense of orderliness. An organized garage can save you time and frustration, as you won't have to search through piles of items or deal with a messy living space. Tilt doors installation

    I've pretty much always done my own nib tuning. It's actually not that hard with a P 51 (depending on the extent of damage, of course). If it is "not starting well", I presume it is not so damaged as to be a lost cause, though.
    All it takes is patience and an image of how you want it to look in the end.
