Was getting stiff after nearly 9 years since purchased new. Homemade 7.8mm spanner. LH threads.

Another way to do is from nib unit end. Easy access and no tools needed. But I prefer to remove the filler on pens its possible on and grease the seal walls. Ymmv.

Hope the pics help someone else attempting DIY.

Very nice - I have been eyeing the M101 since it has become much more affordable. Thanks.

After my 101N Lizard 'came apart (I did send it back to Pelikan) I realised that the piston would unscrew. An old credit card with a notch of the right size works as well as a spanner.

very true, I made a similar tool earlier before switching to a Fountainbel made spanner for my m800/m1000

My M101N Lizard also screwed it self apart recently when I was cleaning it. I ended up using some dial calipers as a wrench to put it back together. Making a wrench would have been better and I expect if I was disabling instead of putting it back it would have been needed more.

 

Congrats on making something. It's too bad the TWSBI wrench didn't work, but I expect it could be modified to work. If the caliper hadn't worked I was going to modify a plastic card like the good captain did.

Very interesting!

 

I thought the M101Ns were friction fit!
