"I never suggested that an open flame should be used."
Nor did I say that you did.
Here's what you said; this is an exact quote, with emphasis added:
"The typical example is Frank's use of an open flame to loosen a section. Today we use other, safer ways to heat up a pen. Still, Frank used procedures that can be found, verbatim and with the same illustrations, in the Parker repair manuals from the 1930s and '40s, when heat guns were not readily available."
You made the claim that Parker repair manuals from the 1930s and '40s both described and depicted the use of open flame in the manner stated by Frank Dubiel to "loosen a section."
That claim is simply false. I'm not sure why you are so reluctant to simply withdraw it, in light of the fact that there is not a single piece of evidence in support of it.
