    Omas 361 Disassembly & Restoration

    This artcile is to discuss about the disassembly and restoration of a regular line Omas 361, the piston which with a pin, should also work for the old model of Omas Paragon from the 1950s. I got a NOS Omas 361 and a vintage Omas Paragon from the 1950's recently, the piston filling system with a pin really make them special, and I really enjoyed the restoration work. Special thanks to Tom Westerich from http://penboard.de and Richard Binder from http://richardspens.com, enjoy! Pic 1. Green Box of Omas 361 Pic 2. Open Box of Omas 361 with Papers Pic 3.
