How do I go about repairing this Craftsman? I managed to easily take out the nib unit, but am stuck on taking out the packing at the base of the barrel. Also, what parts would I need to make it function again?

Hi, I offer free restorations and would be happy to do it for you but you live very far from me and it wont be worth the shipping for you :( I just restored vac fillers http://www.fountainp...s/#entry4117037

Here is a better tutorial https://vintagepens....er_repair.shtml

I believe you will need the parts shown here - one gasket, one retaining washer, and one plunger washer https://www.vintagep...and_washers_kit Im sure US suppliers have the same.

All the best!

Thanks for the reply! I had a general idea of what to do next, but you clarified which size of parts I need, as well as the size of the drill.
