Do I Have A (Literal) Screw Loose?
Alexcat posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopI got, a while back a Montegrappa Shema....beautiful pen, lovely writer, and I've been using it with small cartridges. Decided I wanted a converter, was looking online, as I thought that one hadn't been included, and then noticed a sound under the lining....there was a converter there all the time, under the inner lining if the box, which I hadn't noticed (d'oh....) When I looked at it I noticed something odd: I've seen converters with a tiny ball which rattles about, presumable to help the ink flow, but this has a little wire coil which moves on its own. Pictures below.....what I'd like to know is.....is it meant to be there/move about? (Also....in case I need to buy one...is there a universal type converter which would fit? This one screws in tightly. I've not tried using it yet) (In the photos, I've tried to show it in the middle, top and bottom. Harder to describe than to show) Thanks Alex
