Hero 100 Disassembly
Posted 26 May 2011 - 06:48
The link below goes to a website in Chinese that shows the tools spelling out "Hero 100". If you scroll down the page you will get to some large resolution shots of the steps in taking apart the 100.
Hero 100 Disassembly
Hope this helps others and makes it easier to spare some disappointment.

I believe my mum has ordered from 淘宝网, the chinese ebay site in that way...saves a lot of trouble, considering we live in Australia.
http://www.86daigou.com/ (No affiliation) That's the website she's using right now...Not sure if you can somehow translate the whole thing though.
Here's the basic website, if you are interested. Exams are impending , so perhaps I'll post up a guide at a later date.
All prices are in YUAN <-chinese currency. Make sure you convert to USD when calculating costs.
Oh...and just to avoid misunderstanding...the blanked out website is my University portal login.

Are you saying this site ships to the US? I figured the price on the tool and in yuan to dollars it is only like $1.80. How much would I be looking at spending for the shipping and item price for US delivery?
EDIT: Good luck on examinations!

A retailer who sells Chinese pens in America may have the tool at stock，or you can ask him to buy some from China. Good luck!

Resurrecting this because I am messing around with disassembling the Hero 100, just as a learning exercise, and was wondering about the tool that is neeed to remove the collector on the Hero 100 is the same as that for the Parker 51?
Dunno if you have ever seen a vacumatic tool (I assume this is the tool you refer to as a 51 tool), but it is nothing like the tool for 100 take down. Did you click the link in the early post? That takes you to the Chinese site for the 100 tool. That also walks you through the steps to use it with pictures. The 100 is pretty much nothing like the 51 in it's dissassembly. Internally the workings are very much alike, but to get to them is a different matter entirely.
Hope this helps.
