TOOLS FOR WORKING ON MONTBLANC FOUNTAIN PENS

$50 each

Piston removal from a 146 or 149 Montblanc:

Only one tool is required to remove a piston filling unit; two are shown for clarity. Both the 149 and the 146 use this same tool (MB-1). To use, unscrew the blind cap enought to fit the tool's prongs on top of the slots in the filling unit. Keep pressure on the tool after gently fitting the prongs into the slots to keep the prongs engaged in the slots while turning the piston filling unit out in a counter clockwise direction.

NOTE: It is highly advisable, before disassembling almost any pen, to:

1) Use an ultrasonic cleaner to loosen up and lubricate the screwed together parts.

2) Use mild heat on the parts being disassembled.

3) BE PATIENT, AS OSMAN SAYS.

The difference between the 149 slot configuration is: On the older pens (1950 to 2013), the slots are at 12:00 and 6:00. On the newer ones (2013 to now), the slots are closer to 4:00 & and 8:00. In 2013 they produced both slot configurations on the 149s.

Below: Use of an MB-2 through MB-7 to remove a nib. Note that there is a bit of red lacquer on the business end of the nib tools for padding to avoid scratching the gold. Again, 2 tools are shown for clarity; only 1 is required for a specified pen:
