I have a Gold Seal flat top that is refusing to let go of its personal point. I would like to replace the personal point, and have removed the section from the barrel without difficulty.
But the personal point refuses to budge. I have:
-ultrasonically cleaned the section in Koh-I-Noor pen cleaner (several times)
-kept it immersed in clean water for days
-used dry heat
-tried hot water immersion (160 F)
-tried leeching in Pen Potion #7 on several occasions, from the top and the bottom
-immersed the entire section and part of the nib in Potion #7 for 48 hrs.
No love so far.
Do y'all have any suggestions?
