alexwi posted a topic in Repair Q&AAs I said. The toys are here, I'm ready to put a stubborn Parker 75 nib that I need to take apart through the motions, and am not sure how to proceed. The long story's at https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/336753-parker-75-i-think-i-need-to-remove-the-nib-from-the-feed/ The short version is: I have a Parker 75 nib assembly with serious flow problems that I think I need to take apart, but can't (I've done it before, so this part's not new to me). The working theory is that the nib's glued to the feed with India ink and everything pointed to getting Rapidoeze and soak the nib assembly for 7 to 10 days or to use an ultrasonic cleaner. Being the impatient dude I am, and not wanting to miss an opportunity to rationalize an impulsive purchase, I went for the Rapidoeze AND an ultrasonic cleaner ("I know dear, but this thing can make all your jewlery look like new.") They're both here now, but am not sure of whether just put some Rapidoeze on a shot glass, put the assembly in it, and then get that in the ultrasonic cleaner for x minutes (I don't know how long's recommended), or to just soak in Rapidoeze and then the ultrasonic cleaner, or what. I have some work to do and have to spend time with the women, so I can probably keep myself at bay until tomorrow afternoon. Ideas? Instructions? Should I go with my gut? Thanks! Alex
