Semi Newbi With Nib Quetion
Posted 25 May 2012 - 00:37
So when I went to change inks, I looked up on how to flush the pen to add the new color. While doing so, I learned that I have been a bad boy and neglected cleaning my pen like I should have been. I flushed it several times while it was together to get the most of the ink out (The black bullet proof is hard to get off of my hands). Being at work, I have limited tools. So I took the whole thing apart; I separated the nib; took apart the ink converter and so on. I then put all the pieces on a coffee mug filled with 90% water 10% Windex. Put everything back together and it writes well. The only problem/question that I have is there is some ink on the metal part of the nib that keeps on coming back after I wipe it off. Don't know if this is a normal thing and I never noticed it before or if this is a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
