    Repairing A Rotring Core

    Dear Forums, I own a Rotring Core, seen as the top-most pen in this photograph. Unfortunately, the section is cracked! The thin plastic wall with the threads has a crack that is making its way around it, and I don't know what to do. Has anyone fixed anything like this? Here's an image of it completely disassembled. Thanks, Tom
  2. Recently got a Rotring Core Fountain Pen from the Bay. It's a hard starter and skips frequently. Would like to work on nib to improve ink flow but need advice on removal. Rotring Core has a most unusual feed and section. I don't dare mess with it until I get some informed suggestions. Already searched on FPN and did not find anything that appeared to address this well. Thanks for any recommendations.
  3. I recently had an opportunity to see a Rotring Core owned by a fellow pen enthusiast and while I understand some people find the design a bit .... off putting, I really liked it. I decided that I wanted one and started checking around online for these pens and I am a touch confused on the apparent broad range in pricing. On ebay I have found prices from $7-8 USD plus ~$18 shipping all the way into the hundreds. Even here on FPN I have found some people claiming to have picked them up for $10 while others say $40. At first I thought that perhaps some colors are more collectable than others, like the Lamy's, but have not seen a pattern of this nature. All this to say that I m in the market to acquire one and have no idea what is the going rate these days. Anyone have some insight / quotes? To the moderators, I was not sure where to put this as I am technically asking for pricing information, if this should go to a market place like part of the Forums could you please make the proper adjustments?
