    Need a expert

    Yep I am in the market for a expert in repairs.
    I did write to Beaufort inks for some help on this and I did receive a email back asking for some photo's of a very important pen (sentimental history) of a Fountain pen that was bought in Venice for my son and was snapped while in his inside pocket of his suit jacket, anyway. I have replaced the pen but I would love to have this pen repaired BUT now I would like it converted to a refillable rollerball pen.

    the pen has a 8.15mm thread that has snapped at the base of the section and the cap clicks on to the pen. I will upload photos later when I work out how o post them

    Thank you Geordie no I haven't tried super glue because I don't know what the material is and it might react poorly to the unknown material, plus now I've that it might be possible to convert too a rollerball that is my route exploration

    OK I will try the glue But I don't hold up much hope as the thread has also split so I suppose I will have to wax the female part of the barrel so It doesn't stick together to keep it in line

    A refillable rollerball nib still require a Section in just the same way as a fountain pen nib housing requires a Section. Given that it's the Section that is broken, your only options as far as I can see are to either repair it or to make a new one. Making a new one will possibly also involve re-cutting the female thread into which the section connects, since I think your chances of finding a corresponding die for the existing thread (it's probably nominally 8.2) are pretty slim I would think.

    I tried to superglue in a broken piece of the thread on a fountain pen I was given when I went to high school, It didnt last.
    But then again super glue may have improved since way back them.
