Dry Highlighter

I use a highlighter all the time but I hate how it runs my fountain pen inks on the paper so I went looking for a dry highlighter.

I remembered Howard at Bexley Pens had made one years ago and after making mine I did find them online here.

I guess I should have looked online first but I did like what I ended up with.

Inkograph and Esterbrook Conversion

The first one is a inkograph drafting pen that has some really nice coloring that I thought would make a really nice fountain pen.

This is the section that came with the pen

This is the section made up

End result

Very happy with how it all turned out

The Esterbrook was a felt tipped marker that I converted to take a Pilot refill.

I think it took some sort of ink cartridge
Built a new section to take the new nose cone.

Looking good

Blow Hard Pen

I had a request to turn a pocket blow gun into a pen so this is what I ended up with.
I used a bit of ebonite to close off the top of the air hookup.
You twist the pen to advance the Parker style refill.
