I got my Neponset during the first wave, but I was towards the end of my last semester of grad school, so until recently, it sat unused. I noticed that I was getting normal (read: wet) down strokes, but my cross strokes were extremely dry. Upon inspecting the nib with a loupe, I noticed that the middle tine was lower than the outer tines.

 

The outer tines are both bent up a little, and the middle tine is pretty straight, if not bent down a little. I've done my fair share of nib adjustment, but I'm a little apprehensive to do anything with this nib. Any suggestions?

How's your Neponset? Did you get the tines straightened out?

I'm on the fence about getting yet another Noodler's Ink pen.

Hey Manny! I did get the pen writing, with some slow and careful adjustment. I'm hoping to see you tomorrow - I plan to be at the show unless anything catastrophic happens. I'll be in touch.

What...?! You live like blocks away from the hotel--even if there was a whiteout I'd still go!
