    Default My personal "GF" piston filler collection ..

    Hi Fountain pen friends !
    Below two pictures showing my home made piston filler collection.
    The MB 149/139 replicas are all equipped with the original MB telescopic filler.
    The other pens, as well as my Retro, Nostalgia and Deco designs are equipped with my own compact high capacity GF piston filler.
    Clips and rings are home made in sterling silver
    This is my personal collection, hence none of these pens are for sale .
    Hope you enjoy a least a few of them !
    Kind regards,
    Francis

    The way they are stacked in the case is a perfectionist's dream!

    So, if these are not for sale, where can we find the ones that are?

    Can you tell us what your "GF" piston filler mechanism looks like? I'm toying with making Piston Fillers and would love to get an idea of which direction to go for my own home-brew. Are you cutting your own threads? And if so, resorting simply to a very coarse pitch to avoid a hundred turns to fill it? Or casting threads in some durable plastic?
