Hello all,
 
I open this thread here because I guess it will be read by more people than in the classifieds.
 
I have a Platinum 3776 with a broken feed, and I need a new one.
If any of you has one spare i can buy, or knows where I can find one, I would be very grateful.
 
Thank you.
Vron M.

Feeds come in 15mm and 16mm diameters. Depends on age of pen. If ebonite feed most  likely 16mm.

Thank you for responding.

This is the process i followed and made it work again  :)

  • I ended up using the super-glue to bind it together. 
  • Followed up with a straight blade to re-carve the ink channels & fins which were closed shut by super-glue.
  • Then sanded the extra superglue from the feed surface.
  • Finalized the channels again with the blade.
  • Put the nib and feed back
  • inked it up and it worked like nothing had ever happened  :)

You can email bryce at luxury brands to purchase a replacement. No idea what the cost would be. He initially quoted me $50 for a new section for a 3776 but then just kinda gave it to me for free.

If there is an easy, not an expensive, source of parts for the UK, I'd like to know as I have a pen without feed or nib.
