Fountain Pens – The Complete Guide to Repair and Restoration by Frank DubielAffectionately known as “Da Book”. “Complete” is the key word as this book has just about anything and everything you would ever want to know about fountain pens – plus lots of helpful hints. It is indispensable for every fountain pen collector – beginner to the experienced enthusiast. If you repair or collect pens, or maybe you just want to know more about fountain pens and how they work, this book is for you. It's History -- Originally a self published book (first printing 1995) by Frank Dubiel (passed away 12/07/2003), it tells how to effectively repair fountain pens. Mr. Dubiel originally printed them up in his basement. Aside from the lack of its polished appearance, this book is absolutely packed with information. Frank Dubiel was a pioneer who opened the door to a whole generation of pen repairers and set the standard for what was and was not acceptable. Realizing that because most pens in his book have not been produced in at least a quarter century or more, and that parts are indeed rare, some improvising or even cannibalization may be required. Open minded and inventive, Frank developed repairs using parts and materials that are on sale everywhere. He shows exactly how to simply replace ink sacs or to manufacture a replacement part on advanced tools. When this book was first published, it was assumed that anyone attempting to repair a vintage fountain pen must own a copy of Da Book. My take is that anyone interested in collecting vintage fountain pens should own a copy. It gives an excellent overview of how pens work and older techniques and technologies. Produced today as was originally self-published by Mr. Dubiel - Spiral bound 8” X 10½”- 108 pages. Fourth printing Revised 2002. PERSONALLY, I floundered in my first few years of pen repairuntil I discovered Da Book. IT BECAME, and STILL IS MY BIBLE. I was one of those individuals fortunate enough to buy a book directly from Frank Dubiel and it was autographed by him. I still treasure and reference that book constantly. Absolutely a MUST have Shipping Are you interested in buying several different items but feel you can’t afford the shipping? Maybe you want a Section Tool, Sacs, or a Nib Repair Kit? Maybe you want several other items? We combine shipping on multiple purchases. Typically, you will save between 30% and 50% on shipping costs - sometimes more. This is especially important to our International buyers. As you know the International rates have skyrocketed – buying several items at once saves shipping costs and gets you the products you need for your fountain pen repairs.Important: The total weight of the items plus the number of items purchased controls the combined shipping cost. Buying 2 items will not save you as much in combined shipping as purchasing 4 or 5 items. If you mix light items with heavy items you will save much more than purchasing just heavy items.To receive combined shipping: Place all the items you wish to purchase in your cart. DO NOT PAY Request a “Total from Seller” An invoice will be sent to you with your total purchase costs which includes the combined shipping. Once you receive the invoice you would then pay via PayPal. Remember – DO NOT PAY until you receive the invoice. If you pay for the items separately, I cannot change or reduce your shipping costs as will have already locked in their fees. OR – if you want to write to us before purchasing – we will be glad to give you a combined shipping quote.
