    Default Rescue a Waterman

    A client contacted me to find out, if I could save her Waterman.
    Usually I don't do this kind of repair, but as it's a good customer .....
    Waterman's SAV told her that he couldn't do anything anymore, because no more spare parts for this model.

    Fountain pen with great sentimental value, so damn damn, I embarked on a precision CA gluing, here is the result.

    I'm very impressed. Well done you.

    Can you please enlighten me as to exactly what "CA gluing" is?

    Cyanoacrylate?

    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    I couldn't strengthen them from the inside, otherwise I will not be able to screw the section.
    I redid all the finish from the outside, it reinforces everything.
