I recently got a Wahl Gold Filled Pen, frequently referred to as a "Coronet" (67S97), which is in the process of restoral.
Step one is always inventory, followed by disassembly.
I was actually surprised to learn that I was not the first person in the pen. The dried out sac was clearly labelled Esterbrook.
I managed to pull the splined assembly out of the body without cracking the ink view portion (yeah! take the minor wins).
Now I want to remove the section out of the splined ink view portion.
I have pictures below. One of them is a zoom of the nib, section and splined ink view part.
In the zoomed picture, There is an arrow drawn where I believe the joint for separating is located. Could someone confirm it for me?
I am unsure if it is a press fit, or a screw-in fit. If someone know the answers to these two questions, it would be a great help.
There have been so many of these all metal Coronet pens ruined during repair, that I don't want mine to join the scrap pile with it's brothers.
