Wahl-Eversharp Ring Top Section Stuck



theokuser

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I recently picked up a Wahl gold filled ringtop with a #2 nib in decent shape with a metal section. However! After a week of soaking (water and pen flush), heating, blisters and frustration I CANNOT get the section to come apart! I know there are threads about this all over the place but I've NEVER run into as stubborn a pen as this... Any suggestions please?

I grip the section with a piece of thick leather and a set of pliers with the teeth (?) smoothed down. The water won't help you any since shellac is not softened by it, only heat will undo it. It works much better than section pliers (aka spark plug removers).

I ended up getting professional help from Ron of Main Street Pens when I was at the DC pen show. It was pretty well stuck as I had been using a rubber grip vice and a grippy bit of rubber as well and still couldn't get it to budge. Thanks again to Ron Zorn :) Was a lot of fun getting to meet him and everyone there and finding out it wasn't just me being incompetent... just a seriously stubborn pen!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
