And fresh off me asking a question in this forum about dimensions to my Snorkel because I love using it so much, I went to do my bi-weekly ink top off of my everyday carry Snorkel and the Snorkel wouldn't completely retract after filling. I tried twisting a few times after the fill and it still doesn't go all the way back in. It came out just fine, it took ink in just fine, but won't go back completely.
I should say that I purchased this pen restored from a seller who had it, himself, restored by a repairer I trust. Although I don't know how long it has been since he had it restored or how much use he gave it between the time he got it back and he sold it to me. I've used it daily for the few months I've had it. Every two weeks I've been topping it up with ink to make sure it doesn't go out during the work day. Until now, it has given neither problem nor sign of problem.
I have no experience repairing this kind of pen. Is there an easy solution for someone inexperienced or did something happen here where I'll have to send it out?
