M150 Too Wet, Seeking Nib Modification Tips

Recommended Posts

I have an M150 that I've had for a few years that has always written rather wet. I stopped caring about that for a while after I got a nice Esterbrook, but that pen will be going in for repair soon and I want to get the Pelikan working the way I want. So, would someone please point out some resource for manipulating Pelikan nibs in particular? I think this one needs to have its feed set back a little more.

Do you have the capability of posting photos? That would help us tell you if the feed looks appropriately positioned. As for how to reduce the flow on a nib, Richard Binder has written this up and you should be able to do so by following his directions. These can be found in the "Pen Doctor" articles on his website at Richardspens.com - but be careful when you are doing this as you don't want to push the nib to far and get it to a point it doesn't write at all!

 

Best of Luck!!!!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
