Grommet/tassie Replacement

 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone. I am very new to Esterbrook repair and have a question. Ive got a J that had a mangled barrel jewel which I removed and found out that it was a threaded jewel. The problems Im having are that the tassie (I think thats the word for the little metal trim ring) is gone and the replacement jewel I have is a press fit. Are there sources for tassies or the grommets that the press fit pens use?

 

Any help is much appreciated.

I agree. While the threaded jewel is nice, the cost and labor to replace the parts exceeds the price of a replacement - and the end result (pun noted) is the same.

Lets start with which color is the barrel.

Early J or late J? (Sac tray or no sac tray?)

When did the sac tray disappear? I have 6 J Esties, and haven't seen a tray in any of them.

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

If I were a serious collector, I would probably want to collect all those varieties.

The sac tray was gone then appeared. It allowed the use of the same saccin all j series pens.

...and lever and pressure bar. Some of the levers have two different sets of holes that the barrel ring went through, depending on whether it was used in a J or SJ. Larger barrel means that the lever has to reach farther down to fully compress the sac.

      @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.
