Hello,

 

Would anyone have any tips on removing the section from a Sheaffer Junior 275? I have tried soaking the pen, applying heat, and using section pliers, but the section just won't budge for me. Please see pics for reference.

 

I currently have the nib and feed removed for cleaning since I couldn't get the section off to replace the sac.

Using dry heat is is your best bet. You may need more than one sycle though. But please put the nib and feed back into the section before you try removing it.

Soak in Rapidoeze overnight. Heat a small area right at the threads to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (use infrared thermometer). And I second Mitto's plea: Don't mess with it until you reinstall the nib and feed.

Got it!!! I ended up wrapping a Goulet rubber grip around the section, taped it, applied a blow-dryer for about a minute, and off it popped. I think I was just concerned about the heat cracking the section so I wasn't heating it up enough. Covering the clear section with the rubber grip did the trick though!

Well done, but you needn't have worried about the section cracking. Your concern should have been with the barrel distorting. You were lucky with your hairdryer.
