Help! How Does One Clean A Conklin Crescent Demonstrator?
Dcribbs posted a topic in USA - North AmericaHello everyone. I've been a lurking member for a number of months now and have really enjoyed reading all of the posts. Frankly, the sense of camaraderie among fountain pen owners is great to see. So with that said, I now present my problem for some help from all of you. I picked up a Conklin LE Crescent Demonstrator in black a few months ago. Now that I've used the ink, I want to clean it and refill with a different color. Easy enough, right? Wrong. The section is "flooded" with blue ink. I'd like to clean it out but I'm spooked about taking it all apart to clean it and then try to put it back together. Now, the Yafa repair offices are relatively close to go to them, but I think this is something that I should know how to do. I've looked everywhere for a video, YouTube or otherwise, on how to clean the crescent and get into the section with absolutely no luck. So, my compatriots, does anyone have any insight on how I can clean the section without destroying the pen or having to just take it into Yafa? Thank you all for your help in advance. Dan
