Topic tags/keywords: question

Hi LJ’s- I’m assembling a Penn State fountain pen (Tycoon), and am trying to figure out exactly what one of the pieces included is for.

I have a pump, check. I have an ink refill, check. I have a clear tube that is open on one end and closed on the other. What the heck is this last piece for?

Well, I have a few of these kits on hand and opened the others- none of the others have this piece so I guess you can ignore this :)

The tube should be over the fountain pen tip if its the one Im thinking. Its for protection while assembling.

It’s too small for that, actually a bit smaller than the ink cartridge. I’m thinking something got thrown into the bag that wasn’t supposed to be there. I once ordered a bullet pen kit that had 2 bullet shells, so chalking it up to ‘Oops’. Thanks though, Eric :)

You’re welcome. I guess it was just an extra piece. The ones protect the nib come off sometimes but I don’t believe they are clear, I think they are reddish. Oh well.
