End of Parker cartridge stuck in fountain pen

Recommended Posts

So what basically happened is that the blue end (which is pierced to allow ink to flow) got detached from the cartridge. When i took out the cartridge, the end stayed.

What I tried is to soak that part in water, and use a wood screw to get it out. It doesnt work.

How can I get this out? Its stuck quite tightly I think.

My pen is Parker Beta Neo CT Fountain pen.

I’m surprised that the wood screw didn’t work, but now that I think about it perhaps inserting the screw actually caused the cartridge to expand. Perhaps some dental tool or concoct a hooked wire?

I dont really have a dental tool. I will try using a heated hooked wire or needle put on flame, so that it pierces the remnant and sticks to it and brings it back. Only thing is that then the cartridge end will be almost useless. But better than ruining a pen. Thanks.

 

Anyways, are there any techniques which are also guarenteed to work?

 

Thanks again

Update:  some how i put the remaining cartridge back in, and when i took it out after a day, the end also came out together. Lucky i guess! Thanks to everyone who helped.
