Greetings. Yes, it has been five months or more since the last Update. My apologies. As I wrapped up at my hospital at Syracuse, things grew... busy. I've been catching up on life the last couple weeks and am enjoying the break. I've promised myself that save for a bit of the (too available) moonlighting, I'm not taking another long-term spot until November or December. I did just plonk a new Update on the website, at the usual new update page http://www.vacumania.com/websitesales/newpens.htm I have more than 1000 pens in various stages of the restoration pipeline, most unfortunately not yet shipped out ;) Have couple hundred Parker 51's back with probably another 100 to have done before doing my second big "Parker 51 Insanity" presentation (see the website for the Dec 2008 1st "Insanity" sale. Am in process of having up to 300 Sheaffers from the 1940's done. Have many others to send out to the guys. All in good time. The Sept 2011 Update focuses on my core era of interest, 1920's-1940's plastic and metal pens of quality, from the USA. This round does not contain the typical dominant spread of nice entry-mid level examples, but largely contains better variants. Some big boys. One of the nicest OS Balances I've offered, Vac Maximas galore. Some nifty Watermans. And so forth. Couple mondern pens too including Platinum with music nib. Rare stubby ringtop Vacuum-Filler by Parker. There are a number of "monster nibs" including a gorgeous Waterman 0554 with broad flex stub nib (really a soft right-hand-writer's oblique, but essentially stub) As this offering is smaller than most, and as I wanted to have some fun, most of the photos are not my usual to-scale flat catalogue shots, but are oblique artsy shots. But, hey, I'm not Riepl, so have a heart. http://www.vacumania.com/websitesales/newpens.htm Of note, due to some emails today, the four Vacumatic Maximas already are on hold, but there is fair chance at least one could fall off hold, so do email if still interested. Too, I have some other Maxima in pipeline at least in brown, green and black. As always, you guys are my Update beta-testers. Please drop note to me for egregious spelling and grammar glitches, typos, mixed up prices (one pen with two prices showing) and so forth.
