    Zebra G'ing A Neponset

    I spotted a post elsewhere that had a picture of a Neponset with a Zebra G nib, so I immediately got to work. Sadly, the Neponset ebonite feed curves downwards quite significantly. I recall this issue with the other one I have that I put a Goulet nib into. To do that I had to remove the Neponset feed and replace it with an Ahab feed and now it works perfectly and beautifully wet. The problem is I cannot for the life of me work out how the person managed to get the Zebra G nib to match the Neponset feed - mine are so far apart that you could drive a bus through the gap. They claim to have heat set the nib and feed, but I can't see how that would be possible without damaging both the feed and the nib....am I missing something? Presumably I could stick a zebra g into an Ahab if all else fails?
  2. So, all you folks who were lucky enough to get a Neponset, tell us about it! Do you love it, hate it, what do you like or dislike about it? Curious minds want to know, surely youve had enough time to play with it. Thanks.
  3. I really like music nibs. I have the Platinum 3776 Music Nib, the Pilot 742 Music Nib, Franklin Christoph Music Nib, the Ackerman Pump Pen Music Nib and the Noodler's Neponset Music Nib. But the thing I find odd about the Noodler's is that it isn't a stub like the rest. Sure, it has 3 tines, but it has no stub whatsoever. So my question is: has anyone tried to grind one of these into a stub? What were the results? Was it still flexible? I know that it's possible to by Nib Creeper and Ahab replacement nibs. But, to my knowledge, it is not yet possible to buy just the Neponset nib without the pen. So, this is a really risky project. Let me know if you guys have tried. Thanks.

  6. I've had my Neponset for a while now and the thing that's always bugged me is that the middle tine sits slightly above the outside tines when you aren't flexing the nib. This is the only music nib that I have ever used, so im not sure if this is normal. Any advice or insight into the following would be greatly appreciated.... I have experienced times when one of the outside tines will get caught underneath the middle tine. It's usually only happens when I'm writing/drawing on a really scratchy piece of paper. I've always assumed it was because the outside tine was getting caught on the paper and would pop underneath the middle because the tines bend towards each other. I was thinking about it tonight and it seems like when I flex the nib I feel, and I swear I hear (creaking), the tines rubbing against one another. So it seems like they would easily get twisted like I've described when flexing. I own two Ahab's so I don't feel like I put any inappropriate pressure on the Vishnu nib while flexing; I really don't think I've sprung the nib. In fact I thought this was how they are supposed to look( at least the Noodler's music Nibs). I'm on my second because the first wouldn't write at all because of a feed and section issue, and the nibs are identical. So it at least appears as though this is an intentional design. So, just a few questions: 1) is this normal for a Neponset? 2) is this common to music nibs? 3) will it permanently damage the nib if the outside tine pops under the middle tine? 4) is there a way to fix this?

    Music Nib Adjustment

    I got my Neponset during the first wave, but I was towards the end of my last semester of grad school, so until recently, it sat unused. I noticed that I was getting normal (read: wet) down strokes, but my cross strokes were extremely dry. Upon inspecting the nib with a loupe, I noticed that the middle tine was lower than the outer tines. The outer tines are both bent up a little, and the middle tine is pretty straight, if not bent down a little. I've done my fair share of nib adjustment, but I'm a little apprehensive to do anything with this nib. Any suggestions?

  10. It looks like the Noodler's Neponset is coming in just a week or two and will cost around $75.00. Anyone else quite excited about this? I personally can't wait to see the colors and styles it'll be coming out in. I know some of us here have been waiting years for these to come out. If I hear anything else about them I'll post it here.
