Hi everyone,

when I was filling my 205/64, the ebonite lever chipped.

Can you recommend me a person or a group I can send the pen to for fixing/replacing the lever?

or should I not even be bothered by a chip and keep writing with this awesome pen?

Thank you:)

Either leave it alone, or buff it out a little to soften the edges and make it a little less noticeable.  It looks pretty minor to me.

 

Another option is to put a tiny dab of Loctitie 480 on the corner. Once it dries, buff that to blend in with the lever. It will fill in the chip a little, and leave a smooth convex area.

 

Depending on the next date for So Cal Pen club, vs the LA show, contact me and I will bring my bottle of  Loctite 480 so you don't have to buy one just for this.  We can put the dab on and then put it in your car to dry.

A 205/64?  That's an unusual model/  I love the 64 material - could post a snpa of the pen please?

 

Thanks

Thanks,

 

A lovely pen but not a /64 - that's a SM205/63 - Russet & Jade.

 

Here's a 64 (Brown amber)
