Hello everyone! I am somehow stuck in the disassembly of a Salz "Pan Senior" button filler. I am uncertain as to how the nib unit is sitting in the pen section. Is it friction fit or srewed in? Would anyone know? The normal slight hammer bangs on the knock out block did not do the trick as they would normally. Trying to unscrew the nib unit like in a Pelikan did not either, nor did some heat applied. To know for sure which way to go would really make things easier. (I have been very careful with both, heat and also with soaking, because I do not know what material the section is made of.) Can anyone enlighten me either on how the nib unit sits in the section or on the materials? Oh, and by the way, when would this not so common pen have been produced? Thanks, Amelia Edit: Maybe this post should be removed to the repair section? It's just that when I asked for help with a Mentmore over there, I did not receive any answer at all. So I thought, the "specialists" for smaller brands would possibly be found in this part of the forum.
sudowned posted a topic in Repair Q&AI've acquired a cute little Salz Brothers Peter Pan, which is approximately two and a half inches long, capped. It needs a new sac - which is not surprising - but thus far I've been unable to get the section out in order to replace it. Doesn't budge at all. Here's some snaps: http://sudowned.com/filebox/pens/peterpan/1.JPG http://sudowned.com/filebox/pens/peterpan/2.jpg I haven't soaked it as that murders hard rubber sometimes. I may soak it gently - just the section and seam - and perhaps in ink, but what I really need to know is whether the section is threaded or friction-fit. At least if I know that, I won't be pulling it in an inherently dangerous way when I add (gentle, distant) heat to the mix.
