    Jinhao 159 Converter Problem

    Hey all, So I ordered a Jinhao 159; it writes pretty good for the price but the converter does not work. When i fill the ink in the converter it just starts to drop out almost immediately. I tried putting blu-tack on the top of the screw as I though it was a air pressure thing. Turns out it is not, any help would be appreciated.

    Remove End Finial On Jinhao 159?

    Anyone out there tried removing the end finial off of a Jinhao 159? The cap one comes off, but an initial test of the barrel finial (my hands) shows nothing moving or unscrewing. Now that they have multiple colors I'm interested in swapping some parts to create hybrids and see how they look. Thanks! Graham

    Jinhao 159 Stub Nib

    Hi guys! Hope y'all doing well. It was that day again where this 15 year-old teen felt bored writing with a characterless Jinhao 159. So I just pulled out my pen customizing stuff and ground a stub. It turned out beautiful. It is smooth and wet and has enough line variation that makes the nib interesting to write with but still be usable for daily writing. Here are some pictures... I would love to learn more of this art. I also recently did my first paid stub for a friend and that also turned out quite good. P.S. Excuse the crappy pics. I promise to do a full review of the pen with
  5. I have seen various videos about modifying this pen for big line variation. So I thought I would try it out. I made some mistakes and discovered some stuff that may be of interest. I put it all in a video.

    Jinhao 159 Orange

    (If I'm out of order posting another Jinhao 159 review so soon after the previous one, I do apologise and am happy for this to be moved/edited, etc as required) I just received my bright orange Jinhao 159 today. I had seen some quote positive things about this model here on FPN so thought I'd try one out. Less than £3, not much to lose. I have attached my review below - apologies for my still-not-improving-handwriting-even-with-all-the-fountain-pen-writing-I-am-doing so hope you can read it ok ... Just one take-away from the review to flag: the nib unit is too fat to fit the hole in the

    Jinhao 159 - Review

    Having just received my new Jinhao 159 fountain pen, I thought I would share my experience with it! Looks, Fit & Finish: I have to admit that when I ordered this pen, my expections were quite low. How good can a chinese fountain pen be for only 11$ shipping included right? Well, it can be pretty good! Very nice looking black barrel with silver trims. I think this pen could have used a slightly bigger nib, but I'm being picky here. The nib doesn't look disproportionate or out of place. After a thorough inspection, I didn't see any apparent flaws in the finish or the various pieces. I di

    Jinhao 159 - Long Term Review

    Hi all, I've had quite a lot of time free at the moment and so have finally got around to making my first review - of the Jinhao 159 pen. It's a pen that has been reviewed before, but as I've been using the pen for over a year now thought it good to share some of my experiences. And so... Introduction: After failing to find a Montblanc 149 at a price I could afford I decided to try to look for alternatives, allowing me to try out the apporximate feel of the giant without leaving such a hole in my wallet. Many brilliant reviews pointed me the way of the Jinhao 159 and so after finding
  9. Hello, There's an orange Jinhao 159 fountain pen for sale on alibaba.com here: http://qiangu.en.alibaba.com/product/522615743-200212693/fat_fountain_pen.html The problem is the minimum purchase is 1000 pieces whereas I only want one piece. (The seller has a supply ability of 300000 pieces each month !!) Would any members here know of alternative methods of purchasing, such as via an indigenous Chinese webportal ?
  10. So, recently I was cycling through pens and gave my 159 another go. It worked for me for the past week but today the ink spilled out of the top of the cap and into my leather case. Luckily, I cleaned it up and wrapped it in a cloth for the rest of the day I was at uni. Anyways, my solution was to put silicon grease on the top threads in the case that it would happen again. Then I had a thought. What if I left the clip off? I present to you: Quite beautiful IMHO. Sailor 1911L for comparison. NB: just remember to put silicon grease on the top as although it is tight, I wouldn
  11. Received my Jinhao 159 today along with a Goulet 2-tone Medium Nib. Gave the pen a good flush with the feed and everything before attaching on the Goulet Nib. It's a tad lighter than I expected, and the feel of the body doesn't feel quite like my X750s do (they feel like paint on brass/steel), but didn't feel plastic either, I think it's a lacquer of some sort on the barrel.I know inside it appears to be brass or such, just the lacquer or whatever it is caught me off guard in terms of what I expected to feel. Feels good in the hand, but I wouldn't write with the cap posted, and the s
  12. Over the last day or so of using my 159 the tines ended up a bit out of alignment for the first time since I bought it about 3 months or so ago. I just got them aligned again but the line it makes now seems like a broad or flex now. It even railroaded at the end of one stroke. No pictures of the tines but they and the slit look just fine. But here is a pic of some lines I made. No difference in pressure used. This is a medium nib.
