Wahl Eversharp Coronet Pencil With Stiff Action

I've got the same issue on the one I found with some pens (see european pens forum).
I'll let you know if I can cure it. I'm sure it's possible, but I'll have to study the mechanism first.
EDIT: Can't figure out how to disassemble
EDIT2: Can't quite see how I didn't manage earlier!
Step 1: Take "eraser-knob" off
Step 2: unscrew tip where the lead comes out.
Step 3: push mechanism from the front to the back. - The whole thing should slide out of the rear of the pen easily.
I've cleaned the barrel with a Q-tip and it seems to work quite a bit better now. Just need to get hold of the right size leads now.

GCS93, I think these pencils take a 1.1 mm lead. I was recently gifted one that was in need of a little TLC and it's now working.

As originally designed, the mechanisms were designed to have spare leads in the top part which would fall one by one into the feeder. They tend to gum up over the years, so the first step is to be sure all the spare leads are out and the mechanism is empty. You can run a paper clip up through the front end while pushing the button to clear out anything else.
They take 1.1mm lead in general (there are a few .9s out there, but not many). I sell most grades at The Legendary Lead Company. http://www.legendaryleadcompany.com

Thanks, Jon. You spotted the incorrect button on this pencil for me at the DC show--I'm still looking for a replacement.
