I just became a member of this Forum today.

 

I have a Thomas Mann Ballpoint that had a loose clip. I unscrewed the top, tightened the clip and the whole pen came apart.

 

Now I cannot get the body back together. 

 

Went to MB @ Orlando today - no help - they want to send it to Texas.....nothing is broken. 

 

I wound up buying the JFK Ballpoint so $857.33 later - my Thomas Mann is still out of commission.....Thanks, Jack

Welcome Jersey Jack  :W2FPN:

 

So what is the 'question' mentioned in the title?

"Why did I pay $857 rather than send my BP to Texas for re-assembly?"  ... Yes, that's puzzling me, too  :)

I think the second question is why is he spending so much on a MB Ballpoint when this is the Fountain Pen Network... at least get a 144 or 146 if you are not going to get a 149, but if you spent $857 on a Ballpoint, surely you could just get a spare 149 or special edition.

 

Anyways, good luck Jack getting the ballpoint fixed.
