Does anyone have any recommendation on parts? I would like to get a square 4 lug side crimp sac protector because mine is broken. I twisted it in half, and there it went. I tried gluing it with JB Weld, but it doesn't hold. Welding seems like a bad option because the metal is very thin.

 

Any tips for a source for these would be great, thanks!

Will you be at a pen show anytime soon?

Most repair people can supply needed parts during a restoration.
San Francisco International Pen Show - They have dates! August 23-24-25, 2019 AND August 28-29-30, 2020. Book your travel and tables now! My PM box is usually full. Just email me: my last name at the google mail address.

Yea, i'll go to atlanta pen show and see. I found someone who has the sac protector and quoted me a price for a restore, about 100 dollars after shipping, which is reasonable. However, I can buy 3 working ones off of ebay for less. I am going to give welding a shot, see how that goes.

I found Stuart Hawkinson's reproduced sac protectors to be excellent quality, well-priced and he's good to deal with, just in case anyone else is looking for similar. s.hawkinson@comcast.net
