Greetings,

 

I've come upon a lovely and brassing-free full cone cap overlay...but alas is missing the nib and feed.  I've positively identified the nib I'm hunting for as an Aiken Lambert #1.  If I find the nib, I can probably fabricate a feed by turning down one I have ...

 

Let me know if you might have one kicking around in a parts drawer!

 

Cheers,

Morgan

What is the diameter of the opening for the nib & feed? 

 

If you're certain it's an AL #1, I'm certain this'd work: http://www.ebay.com/itm/351983693264

 

I've noticed that companies who transitioned to gold dip nibs to fountain pens sometimes used their dip nibs in their early fountain pens.

Thanks for the suggestion on the auction; I'll grab that dip pen nib if indeed it will fit and I can't find the 'proper' one.  Here is a photo of what I believe I'm after (From David Nishimura's Site)....-Morgan
