My MB149 Calligraph Flex has unfortunately developed a case of misaligned tines. Pretty sure they were reasonably aligned when I got the pen, but as use has loosened it up a bit they have become misaligned with the right tine noticeably higher than the other.
This isn't causing any major writing issues, but the aesthetics annoy me on such an expensive pen. I could take it back to MB but they will likely have to send it away and I don't want to have to wait the time to get it back. So I'm hoping to realign the tines myself.
Now the problem: I know the standard procedure for realigning (at least with flex nibs) is to bend the higher tine down under the other gently a few times. I can do this on this pen a little bit without removing the nib. But doing so hasn't been enough to fix the problem. I do not want to remove the nib from this pen as that will void the warranty and I am not willing to do that on a pen I cannot afford to replace.
Any ideas on how to realign these tines without removing the nib are most appreciated.
Sorry about the focus in this photo, but I think it shows things clearly enough.
Edit: I just realised I should probably have put this in the repair Q&A forum, if a moderator wants to move it that would be appreciated too.
