I have soaked the nib, but cannot get the nib out, or the piston to move, at all. I don't want to destroy the pen trying to get it apart. I would also like to bring it back to life. I know OMAS is no longer with us. Is there anyone in the US that repairs/restores OMAS pens? I'm kind of stumped here.

    TIA!

    Sadly, it looks like you removed this image. Threads like this one are very valuable to members of this forum who have similar issues. The images are helpful and so is knowing the outcome.

    I did not remove the image. It just sort of vanished from the hosting service. I will see if I can repost. The pen has been repaired/restored by Ron Zorn, and is in excellent function.

    Many of us had that problem when Photobucket changed their policy. The forum will host images though.

    Click: "Go Advanced"
    Click: "Manage Attachments"

    You should have a pop-up. Enable (or disable a blocker) for this site.

    In the pop-up window:

    Click: "Add Files"
    Click: "Choose Files" and navigate to your photo, and select it.
    Click: "Upload"
    Click: "Insert Inline"

    Then you may choose "done", or repeat the process for the pop-up portion. You'll see code inserted into your post, (attachment)number(/attachment) but with square brackets [ ] (if I use them, it will mess up the post).

    You can move that code in relation to the text you've typed, and it will put your photo in that location.

    Congrats on getting the pen fixed, and well done Ron!

    If he wants to repost the image in his original post then he first needs to go to that post and click Edit Post.

    Thank you so much for that information! I will try to repost pictures of this pen this evening.

    When you get things worked out, Id be interested in hearing your opinions of the pen now that it has been repaired - particularly the nib performance.

    I tried to post "site hosted" images this weekend, and could not get it to work. May be that I need to disable a pop up blocker or something? Anyway, I will try again tonight.

    It will give you a pop-up, so most likely you're right.
