Pelikan 140 Micro-leak
Posted 16 December 2010 - 03:45
It's hard to see where the ink is coming from, but I'm wondering if there might be some kind of micro-crack between the threads and the ink window.
Does anyone have thoughts on a way to fix this that doesn't involve wrapping the pen in duct tape?

However, there are very crude remedies (that some people would consider them "heresy") for those leaks: Nail varnish, liquid polyurethane, cyanoacrylate, etc. In an act of despair, I repaired a broken Montblanc 146 this way, because everyone wanted to change the complete body of the pen, but I didn't want: that pen was a gift from my father.
Please forgive my "engrish", I'm a little rusted. Greetings to everyone.
BTW, your avatar brings me good memories.
