My writing slope is missing the mechanism that engages the spring-catch that holds the panel in place. A 2mm (1/16”) hole is at arrow on the floor of the inkwell compartment. The hole is in a shallow, chamfered button-shaped depression 10mm dia. (3/8-inch). Thank you for any information about the missing part and how it might be operated.
Maybe this will help you?
