    Exclamation Omas Paragon piston repair

    Wondering if anyone had luck repairing the piston mechanism on an Omas Paragon. The anti slip notch is worn out. I have tried the usual creative minds inc Fountainbel and nibs.com. The pen is a great writer. Suggestions welcome to get this pen repaired. Thanks in advance.

    Tom Westerich of penboard.de has a stock of replacement parts. I would ask him.

    I read on the italian forum, www.fountainpen.it, that somebody did the part using a 3D printer. You could ask there, most of the users also speak English.

    Finally, I am very happy to update - Francis came to rescue my beloved pen! I had given up after attempts by Manu and Ron to fix the piston. It took Francis a day to repair and ship it back to me. An amazing gentleman and a fantastic engineer. Thank you Francis - the pen is like new!
