Broken Esterbrook J Section, And Sj Barrel - 2 Pens In 1 Week. Argh

I posted this in the Esterbrook forum as well, but I think there are different participants between the two.

 

So I have been restoring Esterbrooks with no problems over the last couple of months, then all of a sudden I've had bad luck. First I cracked the barrel of an red icicle SJ. It was about 1/2 out and I heard a crack, and a little rectangular piece fell off. Welding it with Tensors 3502 did not hold. I learned to use some heat to loosen the barrel even after soaking for 24 hours. Then I received a really nice Root Beer colored J that needed a new sac. So I soaked it and applied heat. Everything was coming off fine, but I did not screw the nib back in after soaking. I heard a crack and there is now a crack in the section. I am trying to weld the section back together. I learned never mess with the section with the nib unscrewed.

 

Bottom line is now I have two very pretty pens, that don't work. I'm looking for a spare red barrel for an SJ (The thin one that is 4.75" inches capped, and a spare section for a J (the wide one that is 5" capped).

 

Does anyone have one of these. I would be willing to pay a modest amount.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

      @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!
