Basic Pen Repair: Don’ts and Dos

By Richard Binder, Linda Kennedy, and Mike Kennedy

(This page published November 1, 2021)

Reference Info Index | Glossopedia  ]

Basic repairs, and even some fairly advanced ones, are within the skill set of virtually all pen collectors. But the information on how to perform those repairs, such as what is reasonable and a good idea as opposed to what is dangerous, harmful, and not a good idea, is sometimes hard to find. This article will help you to understand why some techniques are good and others are not so good.

Some of the information in this article is also covered elsewhere on this site, in different words and often with different images. Having information of this basic nature in multiple places increases the chance that search engines will index it — and that you will see it before it’s too late.
