I'm trying my hand at my first estie repair. The nib and section slid out perfectly smoothly, but I'm having issues removing the black part at the end of the barrel (apologies for not knowing the correct terminology). It just will not twist out. I have tried soaking it overnight, have tried running it under hot water for a few minutes, but it won't budge a micron.
Any thoughts on how best to remove this so I can see what is inside the barrel?
Oh I have read through:
And others, but I'm just wondering what else I should be trying here. It feels maybe glued or shellacked or something.
Thank you! I can't seem to embed images so am attaching them to the end of this message. The first image is the bit I can't get off.
