Once you have taken the nib and feed apart....a tooth brush works wonders...so a clogged 'feed' is eliminated.
I have used a sonic bath for cleaning pens (don't do that with '30's pens....and rubber can change color from what I read), sections and so on.....I would "assume" it would work with your pen in it is modern and not gold plated.....just don't keep it in there a real long time. 5-10 minutes.....better that a few times than trying to melt your pen with 30 minutes.
I have a one each pamphlets from the early '50's from MB and Pelikan......back then they were One Man, One Pen, used daily....filled perhaps once a day....or at least 3 times a week if used at work. The pamphlets both said, clean your pen every 3 months.
Constant refilling ....'cleaned' the pen for normal use.
And that was back in the day when IG BB inks were stronger than modern.
In we change inks often....just clean when changing inks, unless you are a One Ink, One Pen fella.
Thank you, Old Salt....I really don't feel like a Heavy Hitter.
Everyone has some problems....one reads of others....sometimes one can actually remember 15-20%.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
