Speedy, do you know the size of the nib unit you bought from schmidt for the Diamond 530 piston filler? Such as FH 442, FH 341, FH 231, FH 204, FH 31, etc?

That looks fabulous, Speedy! Can't wait until I can get mine.

Speedy: We are all so excited to actually receive your products (pens and the bottles; also the subsequent pens to the FPN initial offering)! It would be so great if you could plan to attend the D.C. Pen Show August 12-15 to show off your work; so many would love to meet you. Those of us going from FPN who have ordered your first pens for our group would probably have fun wearing a TWSBI official logo red pin or badge along with our FPN logos and show badges; could there be such a sticker or pin developed. We could have a phrase such as, "I have a TWSBI! Ask me about it!" on our name badge; would be great advertising for you and help us find others with the TWSBI's to interact with. Hopefully, we'll be enjoying these by then. Best to you and hope you can come to D.C. :notworthy1: :thumbup:

Wow, this is all looking really great. I like that you even got the logo printed on the shipping box.

 

I'd like to reiterate how awesome I think it is that you're making it so user-serviceable and including the wrench and the lubricant for the piston.

Just three more days! I only found about these a week ago and everything I'm seeing is making me very eager. If it's within my means I'm preordering it.

 

Sorry if I missed it somewhere, but what is the capacity of the reservoir? Also, how is 'TWSBI' intended to be pronounced - I want to spread the word, but don't know how!

I believe the capacity is stated somewhere near the beginning of this thread, I believe it was around 2ml (a bit less probably).

 

And as I understand, TWSBI rhymes with frisbee.

I got one email confirming the order and nothing else... Is everything fine or has the project been delayed? any updates on the mechanical pencil?

I think of my FPs as my children.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
