Ah, well I was just curious if anybody else has done this with their pens before, but have you guys ever modded or tweaked your pen with other pens? I have a Pilot Penmenship nib <ef> and 'guts' I guess you could say, but I found out you could use the Jinhao x750's body with it. I mostly did it because it gives it a good weight while I do my little sketches and such. Plus the metal body just feels better than the usual plastic. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee503/Zero1036/1206150058_zpsfm7mgwd7.jpg
Hello everyone, I was told to move my mod over here to discuss it. It is a Noodler's Konrad with a Hunt 56 nib in it. I had to heat set the feed for it and I may have accidentally heat up the grip section during the feed setting but I did squeeze that as well just in case. I say that the grip section may have been set as well because after the mod it appears not to be able to close in the cap as smoothly. That being said, I am very pleased with my work and I tried a few nibs but this one worked the best for this configuration.It flows well and you can see one railroad but I was going pretty fast and trying to go to bed. So these aren't the best pictures but if you guys are interested I can post more detailed photos later or a video to Youtube if anyone really cares. I just don't want to put a lot of effort in if you guys don't care about modding your Konrads. I haven't had any starting issues with the pen and it does not railroad under normal writing conditions. The ink is Noodler's X-Feather and the paper is G. LALO.
