2013 Edison Morgan Le Manufacturing Progress Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Brian.

 

I see on your web site that you have #5 size nibs in 1.9mm and 2.3mm italics. Do you plan on offering these in the #6 size nibs? Soon? Please?

 

The manufacturer has no plans to offer these really wide sizes, that I know of. Those are really huge for most people. If they offer them, I'd buy them, however.

 

The ones that I have for the #5 sized pens were leftover from a custom order a long time ago. Once those are gone, they are gone.

 

Can the #5 nibs be used in Edisons made for the #6 nibs?

 

David

 

Yes, probably, but there would be some customization fees, I'm sure.

 

But you should consider this...if you put a #5 nib on a pen that was engineered for a #6 nib, it might look proportionately strange. It might look like a decent sized pen with a tiny stubby nib on it. I wouldn't guarantee that the pen wouldn't look "off" in the end.

Holy cow those are super pretty!!! I absolutely cannot wait to have one in my hand. It's going to look great right next to its Beige Swirl Pearl sibling in my pen wrap.

 

Also, as an aside, I am so miffed about the dates of the Chicago show. I will be in town the following week for a conference. Grrrrr.... :bonk:

Claussens: the official pickle of the Gray family!

 

If the manufacturer doesn't foresee any 1.9 or 2.3 nibs, any chance they'd offer a nice 1.3?

 

Now that I see shiny Briar pics, I no longer lust after the Neon. :)

So am I correct in thinking you do ten pens at a time? Does it get boring when you do batches or production line pens? Can the 2014 be a bulb filling Glenmont? I'll pay right now! :-)

Our production rate depends on the day.

 

You might have just missed out on a LE Bulb Filler that we did with the Andersons not too long ago.

 

As far at 2014, it's way too early to determine. I have a couple of new filling systems up my sleeve right now....we'll have to see which ones make it to prime time.

An Ebonite ripple would cause a stampede ?

 

Or would a stampede cause the ebonite to ripple? :)

No, that's not blood. That's Noodler's Antietam.

A coin filler (dime?) would be unique in this day and age.

Barring something unforeseen, it looks likely to start shipping around the end of this week.

 

Maybe not this week. I just heard from my engraver, and they might take him a little longer than normal. I'll let everyone know as soon as I do.

I'd like to take a minute to give a big thanks to all who participated for supporting small independent businesses like ours!

 

It's been a pleasure to do this project, and as long as there is interest, we'll host a group buy like this every spring.

 

Sound good?

 

Thanks again - Brian at Edison

      @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

      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.
