Delta Dolce Vita


Stylo7
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have owned a Delta Dolce Vita for several years, orange, not exactly sure if there's a model, but it is piston/bottle fill only, i.e., no cartridge or converter. Ever since I purchased it, the threads on the cap have stuck. Sadly, I recently was trying to open the stuck pen, and it broke in half below the threads at the natural juncture - the "break" is actually inside, per the attached picture. It was actually a fairly clean break and the pieces go back together fairly well - see second pic.

 

Questions:

 

1. Has anyone ever tried to super-glue this type of break? Seems unlikely it would hold ink, but perhaps worth a try.

2. If not repairable, anyone have any idea if it's possible to get a replacement body, or a body from some other pen, that would accept the nib and filler mechanism?

 

I hate to give up on a $500 pen, but perhaps all is lost. I'd welcome any suggestions.

My condolences. I agree with the previous post, in contacting Delta about it. Clara Cornett has always been wonderful, by phone and email, whenever I had Delta issues. Wish you the best getting this handled.

I agree with both posts above, with note that Clara is service guru at Yafa, the US distributor for Delta, but the best point of contact for you nonetheless. 818-704-8888 or yafa.com.

Thank you all. I will contact Delta/Clara. I appreciate the suggestions and contact information. If that doesn't work, I'm going to try gluing it

      @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!
