Sandy, I've never noticed this post before. WOW, this is wonderful. Thank you.

I am *very* late to this thread.  Wow.  Anyone would *want* to mix ESSRI ?!?  I love this ink more and more as the years pass.  In fact, if it weren't for Herbin Perle Noire, I think I would give in to ESSRI alone.  But I am just now beginning to use ESSRI in anything but third-tier lever pens whose feeds can be quickly removed ...

Yeah, all this stuff is leading me to consider getting a Pilot Plumix and a bottle of ESSRI, even after my rather difficult experience with Chesterfield Archival Vault...

Hi,

 

I've a Plumix + ESSRI combo running without maintenance for quite some time.

 

To enable start-up and avoid dry-out, a humid environment for the nib+feed is desired. I suggest keeping the pen full of ink, and rinse the internals of the cap and leave it wet before recapping and letting it rest.

 

I added a bit of silicone grease to the cap:section seal, but that might be OTT.

 

Bye,

Hi,

 

Well, these things are undertaken as a matter of curiosity, so who knows where that goes? Do we have a happy face or not?

 

In some of my work the success ratio is less than 10%; and I've taken some good thumps in the dojo, etc. so 'no' is always valid.

(I can hold my own in a pillow fight so long as the others don't know that I'm ticklishish)

 

As ever, we hope to enable enjoyment and avoid unrewarding options.

 

Bye,

S1
