Cheap jewelry welders for nib work
The-Thinker posted a topic in Repair Q&ADo you recommend cheap Amazon\Ali-express welders (~$100) for stacking fp nibs and retipping? I know the quality is not similar to that of argon gas high end welders, but will it get the job done with acceptable results, knowing it’s just to play with nibs and have some fun ?
Montblanc 149 Bbb Keep It Authentic Or Retip?
Opooh posted a topic in MontblancFinally found a 149 with BBB nib to complete the regular 149 nibsizes. Unfortunately the tip best time is over, compared to a OBB and a OBBB it is more like a dry B. Because it will only be occasionally used , here's the dilemma. Should I keep the nib authentic and keep it out of rotation or should I send it to a nibmeister to retip and loose a part of the authenticity? A writing sample compared to OBB and OBBB ( sorry for the bad handwriting ) and some pictures of the nib.
