    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?

How do you get a Jowo nib to fit a CONID?  I thought it only took Bock?  I have a Minimalistica with a Ti nib but would like to try a stainless XXF (Waverly?) from FPNibs.

I don't use their convertors either. :)
I have their Pilot Custom 823 (vac filler - 2.5ml capacity) and Namiki Urushi #50 (Japanese Eyedropper - 4ml ink capacity).

Now you are just showing off LMAO!

I tinker...a LOT. I just try things using caution and common sense. If it is loose or you have ink flow issues there are a few things you can try. If it is too tight though, never use force. Re-evaluate the plan. The F-C (JoWo) nib I'm running now has gone thru two refills with zero issues.

What black-magic do you use to get it to (seemingly) work?

Urushi #50 is a big pen though, much bigger than Conid kingsize.

No black magic and no seemingly. I have JoWo nibs in my Conid right now as well as my 2 Karas Decographs. They write flawlessly with no starvation or fit issues. I'd post you a pic but I'm too lazy to figure out how to post pictures since the great Photobucket disaster. That and I'm just not interested in figuring it out.

I came close to ordering an 823 but simply put, the color and design really bored me. I have an Opus Demonstrator that is pretty large and I actually like, but it's a bit loo large. It is very comfortable for a while. I have to mix up my EDC pens from time to time.

A Bock feed will take a Jowo nib. I have done this without issue
