Hi, I'm William and I'm in Brisbane Australia.
I found this group while googling for a solution to problems with my 75th Anniversary Aurora fountain pen. Glad to have joined and I hope someone can help.
I bought my Aurora 75th anniversary fountain pen decades ago. It's been unused for a long time. Here is the problem.
1) When I cap the pen, the tip of the nib hits the inside of the cap and pushes the nib out of alignment.
2) I can see this because the nib is rotated slightly on the feeder, and there are marks on the plastic inside the cap.
3) I have tested this by re-aligning the nib/feeder and capping the pen. Same problem.
4) The nib and feeder are inserted into the pen body as far as possible (I remember this when I first bought the pen). The text "Aurora" below the "750" abuts the body of the pen.
5) I suspect the threaded section inside the cap has been moved up and into the cap - pen dropped while capped perhaps - thereby leaving insufficient "headroom" for the nib.
6) How do I pull the threaded section inside the cap outwards a bit ?
Kind regards, William.
