I purchased this Omas nib that turned out to be tiny (5.5 mm). I thought it was an easy and sure fit in a Jinhao Lorelei but it falls off as it seems to be thinner in the base (although it fits with the feed).  Does anyone know what fountain pen can house this small nib? 

 

Many thanks

You could put a small piece of clear tape on the back of the nib to make it thicker so it would fit.

Thank tou so much @jekostas I will try that! I hope it wont interfere with the inkflow. I found out its a nib Omas used in the Dama and Princess fointain pens. Im wondering what cheap pens out there are comparable in size to these Omasses...

You could try one of the tighter friction fit pens like maybe a Lecai Acrylic eyedropper, a Delike brass pen, noodlers charlie or nib creaper.

I wonder if a small ringtop like a Wahl #0 would work. I have a couple fitted out with #2 dip nibs.
