April 2020 – The Pilot Con-50 is no longer available and has been discontinued by Pilot. It has been replaced by the Pilot Con-40.
If you wanted to know how to take apart a Pilot Con-50 converter for cleaning and maintenance, or to remove the metal agitator, then watch this video. I got asked about how to do this after posting my video on the ink capacities of the different Pilot converters, so this video is a response to that one.
Why would you want to take apart your converter? There are several reasons:
- Cleaning and maintenance
- Removing the agitator to increase ink capacity by about 0.1mL
- Removing the agitator so it doesn’t rattle in the pen
