Greetings.

 

I recently picked up a 333 1/2 for less than usual, knowing there would be issues.

 

The body, section, and cap all look fantastic. The nib will need a little attention, but is salvageable and incredibly flexible.

 

But the feed is clearly not original and undersized.

 

I have the equipment and ebonite rod stock to create a new one, but I don't have any idea what the upper part (underside of the nib) looks like. 

All I can find is images of the underside of the feed.

 

If anyone has any pix of one 't would be deeply appreciated. Dimensions would be even more appreciated.

 

Best,

 

Nick

You don't know what you need until you realise you haven't got it.

Thank you so much kind sir!!

 

That's very helpful, and very different from how I would have imagined it.

 

I'll post a picture of the work once it's done.
