    Opps! The 111 confused me in my quick search. But I did find a 10gr pot of 111 silicone for a reasonable price. Happy you did too.

    The 146 has returned to its roost. It works smoothly, and writes beautifully.
    Thanks to the repair artist.

    This is great news, thanks for the follow-up.

    In the grand scheme of things, this is pretty simple, straight forward work.
    So, I think your characterization of the repair person as an "artist" is a bit over the top. "Competent" is probably a better word.

    This said, there are a lot of hackers out there; not everyone who purports to do pen repairs has the skill set (and/or tools) to do this work.
    So, your due diligence in finding someone who was capable of doing the work was time well spent.

    Enjoy your "new" pen!
