  1. Hi, I got a Parker 75 Bicentennial whose cap jiggles. Don't know if that's the right term, but when capped, the cap doesn't stay in place, and it moves up and down about half a millimeter. The issue is the inner plastic cap, which needs to be replaced, as the cap behaves the same when I put it on another 75, and other 75 caps work perfectly with the Bicentennial. My problem lies in disassembling the cap. With regular tassies, that's not a big deal, because the tassies are solid, so it's not difficult to get a good grip on them and start turning the cap. This pen, however, has a hollow tassie, and to make things even more fun (the euphemism of the year), they're made of very soft pewter (see picture). As it is, attempt #1 already resulted in a slightly deformed and, even worse, marred tassie. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding WHAT to grab the tassie in a way that I'll have enough friction and not ruin the tassie? If it's something I can pick up at home depot that might serve this purpose, even better. I'll take care of the marring I already caused with a burring tool and will then figure out how to deal with the slight deformation, but one step at a time - I have be first be able to remove the darn thing first. Also, since, as I said, this might be more than I can chew, can I get recommendations on who to send the pen to in case I determine that this is more than I can do? Thanks all and happy thanksgiving! Alex
