But like many things these days, you can find them (many styles, many prices) at Amazon.

At Harbor Tool and Freight or any similar tool retailer you should be able to find an inexpensive set of jewellers files that should help you do the job.

I sent a Platinum President back to the distributor in USA who sent it back to Japan because someone had put a rod on the feed and tried to knock out the nib and feed - which you cannot do with these Platinum pens because they have a thin straw type rod that fits into the cartridge piercing assembly which fits inside the gripping section of the pen.

The pen came back fixed but Japan didn't understand that the cartridge piercing section had been "mushroomed" and will no longer fit a cartridge or converter.

I don't have a tool that can reach inside and scrape or some sort of tool that can make a small ring of sandpaper to scrape away the part of the plastic that has become wider (mushroomed).

A small circular file like ( ) would be perfect.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The USA distributor is baffled.
