Hi to all,
I am trying to execute a deep cleanup on some Pelikan Pelikano, very successful student pens in 70s and 80s.
I would like to separate nibs and feeders from the sections, but I am not sure if that operation is possible, and if yes how it has to be executed.
In more details, I am working with 2 models:
A black Pelikano Antimacchia P465 (1973). It was very simple to extract the nib (in the photo you see a clone of the original one, that I inserted after having extracted the other), but the feeder seems to be completely embedded with the section. Is it possible to extract the feeder too? If not, how can I execute an effective cleanup of the section-feeder component?
Probably due to dry ink that has been remaining in the section for years, the flow from the cartridge to the nib is by far too scarce (it is almost absent).Then I need to find a way to perform a very deep cleanup inside the section. How can I do? I left the section in distilled water for days, but is was not enough...
A blue Pelikano Model 7 P456 (1989). Here it seems to me that the nib and the feeder could be simply pulled out from the section. I tried to do that, but without success. Before forcing the extraction I would like to be sure that pulling out the nib and feeder is the right operation to perform....
Here are some photos:
Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
TY in advance!
