New Section And Nib For An Indian Made ED

I got this one sent to me to make up a new section to hold the customer's nib unit.
He did not like the nib and there were leaking issues so this is what I made up for him.

New Click Pen

I was doing some cleaning up yesterday trying to keep busy and I came across this rod of plastic.
I was needing a click pen so I built this one to take the Parker gel refills.

I was able to come up with a Parker clip off of a modern pen that I was able to make work.

Commissioned Piston Filler

This is the second piston filler that I have made out of this material.  I had about 5/8 of an inch left over so it was close.

A Pair Made Out Of Vintage Material

I had made up the pencil first for Tamer and after he seen the pencil he wanted a pen to match.
The pencil takes 2mm leads and advances like a regular mechanical pencil so it is not really a clutch pencil like most 2mm pencils.
This material I was told is over 80 years old and is wrapped celluloid.  Meaning it is wrapped around a rod and then the rod is removed so there is a spiral seam on this material as well as it has a built in hole through the center.  The pen I made to take Cross roller ball refills as I find them to be very smooth.

Any way I was quite pleased with how they all turned out and I hope Tamer is as well.
