Excellent service once again at Montblanc. In 2019 I sent in my 147 for repair.
 

This time I sent off my black 144 directly to the MB Repair center in Fort Worth, Texas asking them to replace the gold section ring that had corroded and to clean the nib and feed.

Timeline:

February 3, 2021= FedEx pen from Houston

February 4= received by MB

February 8= received letter with service details and cost

February 23= FedEx out from MB

February 24= I received pen

Cost was $69.00 for Service Flat Rate 1 plus Shipping $15.00 and no cost for the “Forepart”.

They replaced the feed and the section looks new.

Here is a pic of the Old feed.

Looks like they cleaned the pen and polished the nib as well. Very pleased with the service.

 

Hope this information helps if you are thinking of sending in a pen for repair. It’s easy and relatively quick.

Thanks, did they just replace the gold ring or did they replace the entire front section of the pen, excluding the nib? This is the first time I've seen them charge just the $69 tier one service rate for a repair. Normally, replacing the front section would have kicked it into tier 2 pricing.

Looks like they did such a good job cleaning it up that it made the section look new. But while I don’t see scratches on the section, I do see one little blemish. Also I don’t remember the brass fitting being so shiny. large.8DB10696-03E0-474B-8B65-A3201C8C1BDA.jpeg.578b14ccff7a2846eec5bc09093ce064.jpeg

So I think it’s probably the original plastic, but it looks so shiny and scratch free, dang I am unsure. Either way I am happy. For sure the gold ring is new.

      @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!
