Help Me About My First Mb 146 Fp



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

This is my first MB fontain pen. I bought it as second hand item from Ebay.

It is quite new but I have a nib creep problem. While writing a droplet of ink comes up the surface of the nib and immadiately whicked back into the feed living a stain behind. I tried it twice with both MB Black and with Aurora Black ink. It happens more with MB ink when compared with Aurora Black. I flushed and cleaned the pen before inking.

I called MB Service in Turkey about the problem before seeing the pen we can't say anything exactly they said.

Except these what can I do what can the reason for it? Kind regards.

Hi and :W2FPN:

 

If you are actually seeing a "drop" of ink, that would tend to be more than just nib creep IMHO. Possibly a loose piston seal, and it is actually leaking? I'd take it in to the Boutique.

Thank you for your answer. There is no leaking.

It seems to me that Aurora and sMB inks are similar in nature, ie viscosity. Just outta curiosity have you tried a. 3rd MFR?

I haven't try yet. I think the problem is caused from MB 146. Because used same inks with my Pelikan m400 and there is no problem.
