    Default Conklin All American: Disassembly video links?

    I have been looking for a good disassembly video. I specially want to remove the nib and feed. The pen writes dry but was expecting that. I wish to do some nib tuning plus carefully inspect the feed.
    Thanks for all suggestions.

    How recently made is the pen? On my older Conklin Glider (maybe 8 years old now), the nib and feed pull straight out. Newer pens have a unit that unscrews, but I don't know when exactly they changed over.

    I think mine was made earlier in 2020. I was thinking might be friction fit. I am going to muse gripping tool (just a thick piece of rubber) and try just carefully tugging on the nib and feed.

    Is there any vendor/manufacturer support or service for this 2020 pen? Warranty?
