Hi all. I've been having great fun with my new Edison Nouveau Premiere and a 1.1mm stub nib from Goulet Pens.
Today I decided to switch it out to the fine nib I bought from Richard Binder. Unfortunately the 1.1mm nib was screwed in pretty tight by whoever assembled it, and I ended up misaligning the nib and feed. It's pretty noticeable just looking at it.
However, it hasn't seemed to impact ink flow or writing. I tried adjusting the feed back into place with my fingers but it always bounces back to misaligment.
Since the Edison nibs are attached to the feeds, is there any way I can fix this? I'm a novice at all of this...
Edited to add a clearer picture.
If you have a loupe, this will be much easier! Here's what I'd do:
1. Look at the nib straight on, as if you were attempting to stab your eye with the tines; see where the nib is sitting on the feed--is it rotated off to the right or left?
2. If it's rotated, grab the nib by the section, putting your thumb on whichever side of the nib is too far rotated, and gently rotate the nib in the opposite direction. Do this until, when looking at the nib straight on, it's centered.
3. IF the nib itself isn't rotated off to one side yet the feed and the nib aren't lined up at the tip, push the tip of the nib gently until it is lined up with the tip of the feed.
4. After this, of course, you'll have to align the tines....
