Default Vintage Pen Repair Source

Wasn't sure of the best forum to post this in, but since it's fountain pen related, I thought I'd try here.

A nice older woman came by yesterday at a show I was at and said she had an old Parker Jr. fountain pen from her father that she wanted to send out for repair. She said that places she had looked at reviews for didn't turn up anyplace she trusted. I told her I'd ask in here and get back to her with a recommendation.

Not more that a 1/2 hour later, a gentleman came by, big into vintage pens, and said that he's used a place in NY City, something along the line of "New York Pen Repair" or something. Unfortunately, I was so busy at the time, I didn't write it down then couldn't remember exactly what he said.

A quick Google search didn't turn up anything with that name.

Anyone know who he might have meant, or, failing that, of another trustworthy place with reasonable lead times?

Thanks,

Gary

Try Indy-Pen-Dance. Mike and Linda Kennedy repair and restore vintage pens. They also grind nibs to suit the writer.

All those mentioned are reputable. There is also the Bromfield Pen Shop here in Boston, they have done work for me at a very reasonable price (plus it's really easy for me to get there ... but not to escape without opening my wallet )
