Hi everyone!

 

I recently got my first Delta Pen … I got lucky, and had the chance to get a Delta Unica pen in a very good condition, but …

 

After I tried to draw out the nib, the grip section got loose and now I have a resin tube (formerly grip sectin) and the nibhousing with nib and feed.

I do not see any rests of glue or something else, so I am thinking about, how to fix the grip to the nibhousing again, because, if I do not fix it, the grip section constantly turns around …

 

Should I use a strong adhesive, to glue the resin tube to the nibhousing or should I just use kind of a schellack??!

 

Perhaps, here are some Delta pros that might help …

 

 

Best wishes and happy writing!

 

Daniel

Ok. But, I do not see any rests of glue or anything in the resin tube or on the nib housing, so I was wondering, how they managed to stick the tube to the housing …

The section in question was most likely friction fitted to the metal band just before the threads. If it slides easily onto and off of the band it might have a hairline crack (or it might have been cored wrong at the factory). If it does not slide easily onto the band then I would remove the nib assembly and try pressing the section onto the band. 

 

If you decide to glue the piece to the threaded section, I would remove the nib assembly first (or be very careful not to glue it to the section). You might want to be able to remove the nib/feed for cleaning or a swap later.

The exact same thing happened to my Delta Unica from Goulet. I returned it for another, but if I had been unable, would have super glued it.

The same thing happened to my Goulet Unica! They told me to contact Yafa--it had been almost a year since I'd bought the pen. Still, it's the first time I've been irritated by Goulet's service.

Just a quick question: Are Deltas made in Italy? Or in the East?

All Deltas *were* made in Italy.  The company is basically history at this point.
