I love restoring vintage pens! I love it even more than collecting pens and writing about them!
Over the past few years, I have successfully restored hundreds of pens - some of my own, and many sent to me from around the world by vintage pen lovers. I am not a professional restorer, but I have been offering my services as a Pay-it-Forward gesture on the Fountain Pen Network.
I like to document repairs, and so I thought it might be useful to other novice restorers if I shared my notes. You can find them here -> link.
