I just acquired a Waterman 52 1/2 V pen, and the pressure bar has an approx. 30 deg bend in it. I'm pretty sure that's why the seller unloaded it, noting that the lever is broken. I don't think the lever is broken, but I'm concerned about how fragile the pressure bar is. Any tips on straightening this out and minimizing the chance of truly breaking it?
I'll try to post some pics when I return home.
