Parker Super 21 Disassembly

I've tried everything from the hairdryer to warm water to get this pen apart, but it still somehow stays together.

So, now I'm pretty sure it's NOT shellac holding it together... could it be glue??? If so, how should I proceed?

Keep trying. There may be some shrinkage as well as some kind of adhesive, and some of them take a devilish long time to see reason. Repeated cycled of warmth will to it, if it's to be done at all.

I feel so dumb. I just got it apart, but the hood and part of the clutch ring are now stuck in the cap. (see photo) post-114644-0-03527400-1409263573.jpg

 

How do I fix this???

Poo. First, see if you can hook the ring out with a bent paperclip or crochet needle. Then try gently screwing the pen back into the parts in the cap; it doesn't have to go all the way, just enough to grab. If that doesn't work, it's back to the previously used hook, running it right up through the mouth of the hood.

Okay, did it, nothing budged. Any other ideas?

 

Edit: probably going to get a thinner crochet needle though, the one that I used could barely fit through the cap.

You can try threading them back together with the clutch ring still inside. I avoided suggesting it because if it's tight, it might be too much for incompletely mated threads to handle, and you'll end up stripping something AND still have all that stuff in the cap.

 

...and I also should have said, teeny weeny crochet needle. #1 or smaller. Since this is the only thing I use them for, I tend to forget bigger ones exist. :doh:

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
