April 2011 Meeting

The April meeting was held on the 15th and was well attended, despite the Spring snow.  This months topic was Twist Fillers – Their History and Repair.  Basil provided us with some incredible insight into the history of Twist Fillers from AA Waterman, Ingersoll, and Autofiller.  We learned the background of these pen makers and the specifics on repair of this unique filling system.  Following is a photograph of some of his collection that he shared with us ~
