P.S. Eric - I will have a couple of pens for you soon!

Eric has restored and repaired a great many of my pens and pencils and I have always been delighted with the results, even for those pens where I thought that all hope was gone he has brought them back into working life.
A professional approach and a nice guy - what else needs to be said!
How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed.
Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. Another six to condemn all of the above as being stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly.
Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.
