Thanks. There arenít a lot of modern examples of this mechanism, but I like trying to modernize the old filling systems.

That’s an incredible redesign John. I don’t have the courage to try a safety pen yet, but I do plan on a button fill after Christmas.
Everytime I see these great pens, it dries me to get my new studio finished so I can get back on the tools.

Thanks Darrin. Itís a pretty intense process to try and engineer from the ground up. I spent a long while trying to visualize the specifics of how everything would work together. Iím happy with the results, but have a couple things Iíd like to improve on in future iterations.

Button fillers are a good transition into the realm of more involved filling systems. Iíve made a few, and theyíre satisfying to make. Iíd say you should go for it!

Poking around FB in the Black Pen Society group and there are some pictures of a Montblanc Retractable Nib Fountain Pen. Interesting that I see two show up almost at the same time when I've never seen one before. Yours has cleaner lines. ;)

Thanks John. I will definitely give it a go.

Hey Pete.

You should see the Pilot Vanishing point. It is the pen that drew me into the fountain pen world. The mechanic side of me was fascinated by the thought of a ďclickĒ fountain pen. I finally got one, this summer, for my anniversary.

Itís the Blue Carbonesque Vanishing Point. Please excuse the lousy pictures.

Darrin I have been fascinated by the VP for a long time but still haven't plopped down the cash for one. Maybe Christmas. ;)

Iíve wanted one for a while too, and I actually just traded a guy for one. I made him a pen in exchange. Granted I probably could have gotten more money by selling the pen and buying a vp with the proceeds....

I love the pen, but it is a bit of a pain to fill. You have to stick the inner mechanism, attached to the converter, deep into the ink. And you can’t just fill the converter. I am not sure what to do when I’m down to a quarter bottle.
