Hi there!

Just got a PRN-C41 plotter and the pens are dried up

Any tips about reinking? I was able to open the pens, the ink looks like fountain pen ink (water diluable, very thin).

I'll order some fountain pen ink and try to use it

I received a package of plotter pens from the US. They come in five pen packages, either all four colours or four black pens.
Each package is 5 USD, ofcours you have to add shipping and customs fees.
Best Electronic is an owner based mail order company for Atari 8 bit and ST devices that exists since 1984. The Atari owner is trying very hard to get spare parts for our retro colleagues.
The website is anachronistic and fits the topic. But it also holds interesting treasures for us: The Atari Plotter 1020 for example. Without its pens our PRNC41 is unfortunately worthless, here you can still buy it cheap.
A nice experience to exchange with Bradley.
A recommendation.
