    Pen loop problem: I'm a proud owner of a vintage Winchester in red. Now, I'd like to use the pen loop for - for instance - a Cross Millennium fountain pen (9,5 mm diameter) or an original Filofax roller ball/pencil combination with the same diameter. Unfortunately, both don't fit into the tight pen loop.
    Are there any tricks/hints on how to enlarge the loop without destroying the thread?
    I've seen in Anita's post that she is using her Winchester with a KAWECO sport fountain pen - mine doesn't fit either...


    1. Hi Franz ,

      U may try just hooking the pen by the clip on pen loop.

  2. Hi! I am wondering if there is anywhere that has an overview of how much a Filofax planner weighs when empty? I cant find it on Filofax.com. Amazon seems to mention it, but the numbers vary so much I am not sure I can trust them... (btw I love this site and use the inserts a lot!)

    1. Hi Astrid
      Any particular model you want to know the weight of?

      We used to have a Google Doc that people registered the weight of their planners in, but it got abused by spammers, so I removed it!. Plus the weights seem to vary dramatically for the same model.

      Thanks for your comments about our inserts.

    2. Hi Steve
      I have a question off topic I'm afraid from that as the original. I want to buy a Pocket Size binder and Password Paper refill. My Question is there enough space for the A to Z tabs to show the two letters tab. I've just received a note to the effect being unable to edit or comment in the future my apologies
      My many thanks in advance

  3. Hi Anthony
    I assume you are referring to this insert from Filofax:

    It will be normal Pocket Size, so the A-Z dividers will work as the tabs stick out beyond the edge of the pages?

    Or have I miss understood your question?
    I don't quite follow your note about not being able to edit or comment in the future?
