Hi guys, quick question to be 100% sure:

 

TWSBI eco: putting back the friction fit nib and feed: does it fit in every position / angle or is there only one slot where it will fit? 

 

After ruining a Lamy I want to be 100% sure this time...

 

I have tried to search the internet and the forum but I couldn't find a satisfying answer. Please excuse me if I have overlooked the obvious...

The Eco feed/nib aren't keyed and don't need a specific angle/position. Diamond 580 does.

Most welcome :)

 

Don't yank out the nib/feed too frequently though; TWSBI Eco barrels may have a tendency to develop cracks around that area if the nib/feed are removed/re-inserted too frequently

True. I pulled mine once and it cracked. I suggest not pulling them. Go read their website, they have a specific method of replacing the nib.

Peace and Understanding

Ok, great. To me it seemed an easy pen to clean for trying out shimmering inks and things like that. 

 

On the other hand, if the nib and feed was meant to be removed on a regular basis, it wouldn' have been friction fit...

Mine certainly haven't faced that fate, but placing the nib correctly on the feed while inserting is important. If the nib is too high on the feed, it can lead to too much stress at the feed collar and cause cracking
