  1. I recently sent my broad Diamond 580AL to TWSBI because it was skipping a lot of would not write unless I laid down quite a bit of pressure. Since it was sent back, the problem persists. Anyone have a recommendation for a good nibmeister to send my pen to? I had also sent in my fine Vac 700, which I now regret because I put quite a bit of work into it to get it to write well. I thought it could be tweaked to write wetter, but it came back drier and scratchier than before. But I'll just swap it out for my Goulet 1.5mm, which writes a lot better.

    Scratchy And Skipping Nib

    Hi, so I'm fairly new at this. So I dropped my pen (a really cheap Chinese one) the other day and the tines got messed up. While trying to realign them, I think I accidentally broke off the ball-thing (I'm pretty sure the tip; again, I'm new, I don't know much, and I'm trying my best). The pen writes all right upside-down now, though it skips a bit and has trouble starting, but it's really scratchy and barely writes at all right-side-up. However, it writes fine both ways if I put the paper on something soft, like a pillow or something, so I guess it just can't write on hard surfaces (though that's a problem, too). I'd really appreciate any tips on how to fix this! PS, I am very limited when it comes to tools I can use, and so I only have really, really common things (and sometimes not even those).
  3. Ok... I'm seriously freaking out. Or not? Sometimes when I use some kinds of cheap copy paper in the office, I get the impression that my pens become more scratchy! I don't mean that they feel more scratchy on some kinds of paper, that's normal. I mean: they write fine on paper 1, then I use cheap copy paper 2 to write a couple of notes, then I go back to paper 1 and they feel scratchy, ink flow is poorer... This always happens with cheap, uncoated papers that have a kinda "chalky", "powdery" feeling. Has anyone ever experienced anything similar?? Is it possible that a paper alters the performance of a nib? I've read somewhere that some reams of cheap copy paper are advertised as having a low "powder content", which supposedly has an impact on the performance in printers and copy machines, but is this something that really exists or is it just a marketing tool? And does this have an effect on FPs? let me know if I should call the local mental hospital, or sell all my pens and retire to meditate on the meaning of life in a Tibetan monastery. cheers, Fabio
