Swan L330/60 Clip Replacement


Recommended Posts

Hey All, 

 

I have a L330/60 with a clip that needs replacing.

 

I've not tried taking the cap apart yet. I thought, since you're all so knowledgeable on here, I'd be better off asking before giving it a go. Can anyone tell me how the cap disassembles? Does the finial screw off? And is it likely to be held together with shellac? Anything else I should know?

 

My first instinct is to try and unscrew the finial with rubber grippys and some dry heat. 

 

Anything I should know from any of you who've done this before?

 

Thanks,

 

'Rewpert.

Please post a picture so I can feel certain that I know which style cap is on your pen.

Not my photos, but they are pictures of the pen I own. I hope the original photographer does not mind me sharing them, since they've already been posted online. (Please PM me if you do.) They are much better photos than I could take.

 

Cheers,

 

'Rew.

The part above the clip should unscrew.  No shellac.  Your original idea should work.

An update: As Greenie said, it unscrewed without problems. Now all I need to do is find a replacement clip.

These clips are not easy to find, if you do find a source, please let me know.

Hey @eckiethump. I've asked around, but I've not had any luck. My next port of call was to email and see if you happened to have one among your spares.

 

Would there be any mileage in trying to repair the existing clip? The rest of the pen is far from pristine. Having a little brazing or soldering on the clip would likely add to the charm rather than detract from it.

Those are the more common clips, but break regularly, I did adapt one, at one time to fit the clip you need, as the "ring" is hidden. Not something I would do again in a hurry, very fragile on completion.
