Good evening, 

 

I recently received a Reform 4328 with a surprisingly nice flexible and bouncy nib. The problem is that the nib unit does not hold the nib quite well. 

When unscrewing the nib unit, sliding the feed out and re-positioning the nib where it should be, I get no improvement. Heating the nib unit doesn't yield any result either.

 

From what I see, either the nib is too short and doesn't go far enough into the nib unit or the feed ring isn't tight enough. 

 

Would any of you more experienced collectors have advice? 

 

If at all possible I really want to avoid gluing the nib to the feed ...

 

Wishing you a very nice end of year ;-)

 

Florent
