New designs on my workbench: Pelikan M400 & M800, Pilot 742 FA, Zebra G in JoWo #6.
JoWo #6 replacement feeds/housings (J6A) now available for purchase (nib not included).
Many of my customers have asked for more clear cast acrylic JoWo #6 replacement feeds and housings. Production will restart on January 4, 2018, and I should be able to ship parts to fill all outstanding orders by the following week.
Thank you for waiting so patiently.
I’ve made good progress on making a JoWo #6 housing and feed for the popular dip nib Zebra G. I hope to have this product in the hands of a couple of beta testers before the New Year, and release it in mid-January.
Whichever design is done first… Pilot 742 / 912 FA replacement feed, or Zebra G dip nib in a JoWo #6 compatible housing…
Though the JoWo #6 replacement feeds and housings in clear cast acrylic are ready for production, due to an equipment problem, production is delayed until after Christmas. My apologies for the delay.
I am happy to announce that the following products are available for purchase:
- JoWo #6 replacement feeds and housings in black ebonite (J6E) and red ebonite (J6ER).
- Pilot 743 replacement feeds in two versions, 743E with 3 slit ink slot, for dry inks; 743EN with 2 slit ink slot for normal inks.

I’m finally well enough to spend an hour or so a day in the factory, with help from my son to operate the Mazak QTU-200MSY live tooled lathe. These are production ready prototypes of JoWo #6 feed and housing in clear acrylic. I will tweak feeds and speeds to make the housing more transparent before offering these for sale. This one has a steel Goulet Pens nib in it.
