Hey everyone, just got this Monte Rosa from a online-auction house, not sure if its a real MB-MR. The case is that when I write for example, 200 words or so the won't write as well at the end, the ink don't flow until I screw the piston a bit, this is my first pistonfiller so I am not sure if I should turn it everytime to get out some ink every 200 words or its just going to flow automatic. The second picture you can see that the last two straight lines is the last one until the pen stopped totally working, until i twist it again.


Any ideas what the problem might be?


Thanks!

The link in your post is not working....but I would think that you will need to give your pen a thorough cleaning and that the ink channel in the feed maybe full of precipitated ink. Fill it with water and let it sit in a vessel with water nib down and see how much ink comes out by gravity. Hope this clears the channel.

I now posted some pictures! I posted this pictures on reddit and someone said the pen should not be flexed, however this pen is super flexible. Nib is medium size. I'm used to a parker 51, and I tend to push a little, not like a rollerball.

 

I got this pen today, flushed it really well by water. Flushed it about 10 times until the water came out almost clear.

 

Edit: You can clearly see on the first picture when i Wrote Sweden really bad SW is lacking ink however Eden is rich. Also there is a small gap between the nib and the feed!

      @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.
