Thank you. I gave up. I had it sent back to Parker for repair.
Thank you Phil. I tried and I tried, but the wetness is not my problem, the stopping after 15- 20 minutes is the problem. It seems that the pen writes the collector empty and it won't refill but forced by hand. After that it writes again 15-20 minutes etc.
Thank you Phil. Your reply inspired me to fiddle some more on trying to get the feed to nib distance right. I suppose it was to tight, for after a hot bath and no pressure on the feed, it worked fine. Not wet anymore and it kept on writing. Perhaps the pulling through of 1200 grain sandpaper helpt.
I bought a Parker Duofold from 199x second hand. Your blog was very useful in resolving some of the problems it had. Thank younvery much. Now it writes perfectly though a bit wet. But after 15- 20 minutes of writing it stops and I have to move the plunger of the converter to get it to write again. How could that happen? And what can be done to cure it?
