Hi Everyone,

 

So I have a Pelikan Go! P70 and I've royally fu**ed up.

I was cleaning the nib, very gently, and, I guess my gentle wasn't soft enough so while still screwed into the barrel, the nib section broke off.

On top of that, there's a crack in the grip and it keeps falling off.

Here's a few questions I have. I'm dirt poor and can't afford another one! I had this pen for literally 3 days before it went to sh*t. I pretty much spent my savings on this and I'm pretty sure I got ripped off.

I paid upwards of 50 euros for this, plus currency exchange fees from the Canadian Dollar, so, I know, I messed it up.

 

Okay....

 

Can I repair this pen? It's my only hope to write with a fountain pen.

 

Can I remove the screw in section from the barrel? It's broken in there, screwed in.

 

If I can remove the section stuck in the barrel... how can I reattach it to the nib section?

 

I'm planning on fusing the plastic together to fix the crack and using superglue to make sure that the grip stays sealed (not stuck to the nib section though).

Honestly, I'm desperate to repair this pen. I can't afford another one after I got ripped off with this one.

Michael, always willing to help another canuck. Let's start with a couple of pictures. Lets lay the pieces out on a towel and see what you have. In the meantime I'll do some investigating on the Pelikan Go.

Do you have any interest in a Grey Pilot Metropolitan and a Bexley Continental? I can't repair a Go but there are I do have a couple of unused pens. We can't let your career in fountain pens wither on the vine!
