Pilot Con-70 Help?

Hi all

I am trying to fill a new con-70 converter.

I can't seem to get much more than 1/3" of ink into it.

Any tricks?

Thanks

 

Steve

Pump, pump, pump.

 

Mine will fill almost to the top.

 

You might have a bad one.

Pump slower.

The rubber stopper on the breather tube needs to be at the bottom (nib end) to block the opening so that the air is forced out through the tube. If it's not, give the pen a shake so that it drops down.

That's what she said. ;)

 

 

 

Banana is right about that little stopper. Once it is in the right position, all should be fine. If not, be sure the converter is properly seated. The CON-70 is one of the best converters out there. Nearly fool proof.

Pump about 5 times while immersed in the ink bottle. Let it sit in the ink 5-10 seconds after pumping.

Ok the black stopper is near the bottom of the tube.

I have done this with out the converter in a pen.

Should that make a difference?

Hi,

 

Put it back in the pen and make sure the stopper rides freely up and down. Pump the converter and the pen should fill.

Yes, not much suction with this particular converter unless it is fitted in the pen.

This is a great converter. Sometimes all these small bubbles form up while I am trying to fill my pen,

but I cheat by using a syringe to put even more ink into the converter and get full capacity. A little

OCD-ish behaviour, but I think all those bubbles are a waste of space, really...

I do the same thing. :lol:

Now I realised my Con70 has scratches in it because of the sharp needle.

I am going to buy another spare one. It's expensiveeee! I really don't

like the small bubbles. I prefer to do this...

You can get syringe needles with no point. I don't know where, offhand.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value.--Thomas Paine, "The American Crisis", 1776
