Bench Fee: at our discretion, a bench fee of $15 per pen will apply if the pen is deemed non-repairable.  This fee recovers time spent in disassembly and assessment and diagnosis and re-assembly of a pen. We are able to restore 99% of the pens that arrive at our pen repair service facility, we reserve this fee for the 1% of pens that we invest an hour or so in only to find they cannot be repaired.

Broken, damaged or missing we can take care of it. From cap lip replacement to the manufacture of an ebonite eyedropper cap... and everything in between. Before you give up hope, give us a call.
