I got quite lucky on a trip to a local vintage market and found two good condition Targas - I got the two together for $30! One is matte black, and the other is chrome with vertical lines. Both are steel-nibbed and essentially unblemished (aside from dried ink in the feeds). But how do you flush a Targa section/feed? The syringe I normally use doesn't fit too well (water comes out to the side). It seems fine by now with simple soaking, but touching the nib to a paper towel still wicks away quite a lot of inky water. I know the inlaid nib doesn't come off, but does the section disassemble any further? Can it be safely put in an ultrasonic?
Also, once it's cleaned, is there a way I can tell what size nib it is?
(I may post pictures if I can convince my portable all-in-one telecommunications device to behave.)
