I am lucky enough to own a MB Oscar Wilde pen & pencil set, which has been in a pen case for the past 15 years! I decided to revive and use both last week, all good with the pen (writing much more smoothly than I remembered, what a nice surprise!) but the PENCIL is having problems.
There was HB leads in it and I decided to change them to B, that little bit softer; however when I went to change the leads, they won't advance? It seems the arm, the lever, inside that advances the lead won't retract. A pen repair friend just looked inside it and he said he could see the arm down all the way but it won't go back up again.
No damage anywhere, I've hardly ever used it, but clearly something slipped or went awry when I was trying to load the leads last week.
I am in Ireland, if anyone can point me to where it can be repaired I would be SO grateful. It is such a beautiful piece, I really do want to use it and bring it to life.
