Leaking Waterman L'etalon
Robb1980 posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesRookie question - What would cause a converter/cartridge pen to leak at the grip? There is no obvious blockage and does not leak except when held in the writing position. I'm guessing this is a feed problem, but would appreciate any comments and suggestions on how to correct. It's a beautiful pen that has been in storage for a long time, was flushed, but began to leak as through the ink is backwashing into the barrel. Thanks in advance.
Decimo Nib Section Leaking?
poisonball posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesHey guys, I bought a decimo from Japan's rakuten (had a friend recieve it in Japan for me ) and then when I put in the converter CON50 I think, the... metal bit got stuck when I tried to pull out the converter? I don't know how to get it out now. And now I'm worried it might be causing it to leak: It keeps smearing ink when I click it open. I don't know if this is because the ink is Noodler's Bad Belted Kingfisher, or whether it's from the converter issue. Should I try diluting the ink to see if that will fix the issue?
