MrMassador posted a topic in LamyEarlier last week, I received a newly acquired Lamy 2000 that I purchased 'New' on eBay (here's the link I bought the pen from in case anyone's curious). All was fine with the pen, but the nib was a bit scratchy and a tad out of alignment. Being the "do it yourself" kind of guy, I figured I'd give a go at realigning the tines by using my fingertips and finger nails and to my success, I realigned the nib successfully! However, the pen does feel a bit scratchy, so I am intending on using 12,000 grit micro mesh (only) to smooth the nib out to my liking. My question is this: By purchasing my pen (new) from eBay, have I voided my warranty with Lamy (I am located in the USA, so I imagine I'll go through Lamy USA?)? By realigning the tines with my fingertips and finger nails, have I voided my warranty? By smoothing my nib out with 12,000 grit micro mesh, will I void my warranty? If I have a problem with parts of the pen NOT related to the nib, will Lamy still honor their warranty (i.e. replace a cap, fix the piston, etc...)? And lastly, if I indeed have voided my warranty by doing any of the above procedures, can, and if so, how does Lamy (and other pen manufacturers, for that matter) tell if you've voided your warranty by realigning your tines and/or smoothing your nib with micro mesh? As I'm sure any of you can assume, I am asking this question because while I want a glassy smooth feeling out of my Lamy 2000 nib, I also want to make sure I will be/can be covered in case any problems occur with my pen. Returning the pen isn't much of an option, as I don't want to have to hassle with return shipping, wait for a new pen to arrive, and receive another Lamy 2000 with a defective nib. Thank you so much for reading through this wall of text and I hope you have a great day! tl;dr: does realigning tines void warranty? does polishing nib with micro mesh void warranty? are other non-nib parts honored by warranty still? will lamy be able to tell I've realigned the tines and/or polished the nib with 12000 grit micro mesh?
