Help! Need To Disassemble A Stuck Skyline Cap

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I'm trying to restore a green moire Eversharp Skyline pen. The problem is that the cap doesn't screw securely onto the barrel. I've tried screwing the cap on to several other Skyline barrel-section assemblies, and it screws on fine. I've also tried screwing the cap onto its own barrel without the section and it screws on fine. It only doesn't screw on fine to this particular barrel with a section installed.

 

So, I believe I need to take apart the cap and shorten the length of inner cap. Ordinarily, Skyline caps are dead-simple to take apart. This one, however, is proving a Right Little (bleep).

 

I've tried unscrewing it as I do normally with Skylines. Failed. I soaked it in an ammonia-water ultrasound bath. Failed. I've heated it with my heat gun. Failed. I've tried ultrasounding it in the bath for ten minutes and then heat-gunning it, and failed.

 

I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Other than the cap not screwing on, it's a lovely pen.

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

      @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!
