Hi all, here I am again with a new restoration project.
This time the pen is an Eversharp Kingswood, probably from the fifties (anyone can confirm this?)
The pen is a button filler and it needs the usual treatment: new ink sac and body cleaning.
The main questions are about the cap:
- Is the clip original? The ring that hold ot is a little greater than the cap and it moves a little. Looking closely you can see it is a little larger than the cap diameter.
- How can I remove the black top from the cap, in order to clean everything in the better way? I've tried to keep it in the water and to warm it with an hairdryer, but it does not move... any suggestion?
And then the pressure bar: it has some rust. I'm trying to remove it with acid, dipping it in vinegar for a week, and then I'll neutralize acid residues with water and sodium bicarbonate. Do you think I'm doing anything wrong?
