    Man 100 Feed - Positioned Correctly?

    After my Man 100 dumped ink everywhere for the 3rd or 4th time this week I decided to investigate what is going on. Something looks strange to my inexpert eye (apart from the corrosion, obviously). Does the position of the feed look correct in these photos? Specifically, should that lip at the end of nib support be in the position it is in (with a gap between it and the section) or further back into the section? Assuming adjustment is necessary how does the feed move into the section on the Man 100. Is it a friction feed or a screw-in feed?
  2. For Christmas I received a flock of Jinhao 750 pens -- then purchased a small number of Zebra G Titanium nibs with the goal of converting the pens I did not give as gifts to use with a flex hack. Help here on FPN and lots of You-Tube, I converted only two of the remaining pens successfully (almost) to where normal script works OK most of the time. I had cleaned the nibs well before replacing them in the 750s. I discovered that the feeds (several good inks tried) cannot keep up with and flex. On You-Tube I found an engineer/chemist who partially solved this problem by realizing the ink
  3. I have this unusual Swan feed; at least it is unusual to me. Does anyone know which model it belongs to?
  4. Lately I've been looking for pens with interesting feeds. What I've found so far: Transparent feeds: Platinum Cool Pilot Petit1 Wingsung 698 Matching feeds: Vintage Waterman Red Ripple with red ebonite feed (apparently very rare to find intact because the red ebonite was more brittle than black?) Aurora Sigaro with brown ebonite feed And...that's it. That's the whole list of everything I've discovered thus far. The feed is an under-advertised feature of fountain pens, so it can be difficult to search for them. For instance, if I hadn't picked up and turned over a Sigaro in Dromgoole'
  5. Hi All, I would like to share some of the things that I have created with my 3d printer specifically for my fountain pens. Here is a picture of some of the iterations of the things that I made. I will talk about them in more detail below. 1) The interlocking parts at the top are cross sections of a pen tray system that I designed. The idea is that you can print as many of them as you like and they will just sit one next to the other. The clip at the top of the ark is used to hold down a suede like fabric that is gentle on the pens. I did a few iterations until I arrived at something I l

    Fotos Of Fountain Pen Feeds

    Writing is good, but a picture says more than a thousand words. The topic on fountain feeds on my website is almost completed. What's missing is a page, which brings all the information together, in samples of application. My idea is that I would show close up photos or detailed drawings of feeds of various types and show how they work. I tried taking close up photos, with not much success. I don't have the equipment. I tried drawing them, with not much success, either. What I am looking for are links to places where they display such photos or drawings people who would give me
  7. I was thinking about my pens and I got to wondering about feeds and how different they all look, and how their shapes might influence performance. My Lamy Safari has a very streamlined feed, sloping up parabolically against the nib. The Vanishing Point has a tiny feed fitted to its tiny nib, Pelikans and Auroras have stout feeds that I find attractive, the Pilot Custom 823 has a kind of combination, with a very Lamy Safari looking portion with a hole near the nib's tip broadening into a flat section with fins near the section. Sailor feeds have an area which seems to be under the breather hole
  8. Dear community, I recently purchased a Mabie Todd L205/47 which I want to restore. The original nib and feed, which I believe would have been a Swan #2, has been replaced with a #1. These are, of course, too small for the section, so the nib does not sit snugly in the section. Can anyone steer me in the right direction to find a replacement nib and feed? The sac I'll need shouldn't be as tricky to locate, but tips are always welcome! Many thanks in advance, Gwen
  9. Several years ago, I bought 12 Cross pens of the same model, although I don't know the name of the model. I got the pens at a very good price. All nibs are either fine or extra-fine, which was what I needed at the time because I was constantly entering notations on data reports. Since I no longer do that type of work, I would like to replace several of the nibs with larger sizes. I assume the Cross nibs are #5 (?). The photo shows the Cross nib next to a #6 Noodlers nib. Would just about any #5 nib work, or is the Cross feed suited only for the Cross nib? Thanks! PS - Please let me know if

    Jinhao X450 & X750

    I have seen a few posts on the site about flow issues with both these pens , some of these flow issues could be of course not cleaning before inking , badly set nib tines etc... I have 2 of each of these pens and I have flow issues with only one of them the X750 in shimmer sands finish I have tried numerous things to cure this including re-cutting the feed channels widening these which helps to some degree and also using a converter with an agitator to break the surface tension of the ink which again helped also. One thing though that I have noted and please check this out in case its my eye d
  11. Hi all, Lamy USA used to offer spare Lamy 2000 feeds for sale, but that option seemed to be gone now. Would anyone have an idea where to get spares? Thank you!
