My main interest is in pens that are generally  regarded as difficult to restore, including De La Rue Onoto piston fillers, Sheaffer Vac-fil, Eversharp piston fillers, Sheaffer Touchdown and PFM, Swan Visofil, Blackbird Topfill, Ford piston fillers, Waterman safety pens, Conway Stewart piston fillers etc.

Restored pens are offered for sale.  Many letters of appreciation have been received (see ‘Testimonials’).

I intend to devote more time to writing technical articles (which will be added to those already existing in the technical section of this site), and to the development of new design repair tools that will make easier some of the more daunting repair tasks.

The book was produced in honour of Arthur Twydle (the UK pen guru).  Arthur was starting work on the book with our cooperation at the time of his death, so we have completed it.

The three sections cover general topics, specific pens (such as Vacumatic, PFM, Visofil etc.) and advanced topics such as nib work, cap lip replacement, plating, threads, and machining.

Only one copy left (£10 plus postage).
