Hi, if your method worked great, but you can damage the feed or section when you hit it, and you may find the nib begins to turn sideways as you write, particularly with pressure, which would indicate the nib is not in far enough. The section may not be perfectly round, so sometimes rotating it relative to the feed makes the difference. You still may have to grip the nib and feed hard between fingers and push hard too, to properly seat them. If that doesnt work.....always a good idea to send to a repair person. Good luck and happy writing!
