Default HELP!!!! Triton pen

Hi,

I have a problem with a Triton pen. That's the first time I make that pen and I followed all the instructions. The ink cartridge always go in the pen. So it's impossible to write... I thought maybe the tube was to long, but I looked with another kit I have and both are the same lenght.

Someone have an idea?? The only other solution I see, is to glue something in the end cap to press the ink cartridge out...

Thank you

Mathieu

By some chance did you forget the spring? They are easy to drop.

I'm assuming you've put the spring in the finial cap and screwed it on? It looks like you have room there. The only other possibility I can think of is that the tube is short (and I have received Atrax tubes (the plain version of the Triton) that were of incorrect size).

I put the spring in the wrong place... I corrected that, but when I write, the nib comes in... Maybe it's normal because I usally use other type of pen? Or maybe the spring is not harder enough? I can write with it, but I guess that's the spring efefct that make the tip comes in when pression is applied on the pen...

Make sure the narrow end of the spring is touching the ink cartridge, the large end sits on the bottom.

The tip of the refill always goes in a bit, but it shouldn't go in very far.

Are you sure they were Triton tubes and not Jr Gent, same diameter but different length on the body. Do not ask how i figured that out

I had this happen once on a Cambridge and it was actually the ink cartridge. I couldn't figure out for the life of me why it kept sliding in the pen but decided to throw in a different cartridge and sure enough, problem solved. On closer inspection of the faulty cartridge, I could tell the cap plugging the end wasn't quite right, but it wasn't even noticeable until I put it side by side with another.

I stretched the spring and it seems ok. The tip goes in a bit if I push, but it doesn't go in while writing
