    Parker 21 - Pen Cap Question - Repair

    Hello, I am new to the forum, and am hoping this is the right section to post this in. I found this Parker 21 for $40.00 at a local antique shop. I noticed that the pen cap can rotate around the metal band of the mid section freely. The cap stays on securely, but this rotating situation makes the over all feel of the pen... I hate to say it...cheap? Otherwise I love this pen dearly. Is the cap suppose to do this? I let it soak for a few days in water, and a bit soap. This has gotten the pen to a poor working condition. I still can't remove the filler from the rest of the body to gain access to the nib for cleaning. I have even taken a blow drier to it, and it still won't budge. Any suggestions for my dilemma? - Bearded Pens
  2. I have just bought both a 144 classique fountain pen pop cap (engraved) and 145 classique/chopin? fountain pen(broken clip) and would like advice on removing the logo to swap cap barrel on 144 and put a new clip on 145. My wife has a 163 classique rollerball and the logo just unscrews quite easily, whereas my 162 legrand rollerball doesn't. Any advice for a newbie addict gratefully received!!!! Thanks :-)

    Need To Post

    Some of my pens work just fine without posting the cap on the end of the pen. That is true for my Montblanc 146 and 149, and definitey true for my Pelikan M800. I've started writing with one of my older Pelikan M600 pens. Because the previously mentioned pens are longer and heavier, they feel fine in my hand without a posted cap, but the M600 doesn't feel so good - too light and a tad too short. When I try to post the cap, it is loose, even if I push it firmly over the barrel. I love this pen; it writes so smoothly and reliably. So what can I do to make the cap fit firmly over the barre? I don't want to use a rubber mallet to post it! (just kidding)
