Sheaffer With An Odd Nib Tipping


Recommended Posts

Hi, I just got this pen off fleabay.



It is a very pretty pen, but it was a bit scratchy and balky unless the nib was wet. However, the line is smooth and very juicy!

Under the loupe I could see the tines were misaligned, and a bit of baby's bottom






However, the it is just possible to see above that the slit on the nib was twisted and the edges of the top of the nib were also out of whack; this could have been if one side had been dropped, or a repair job. I am puzzled. There is no damage evident anywhere else.





Anyhow, I got at the overlap with some 1200 grit wet and dry, followed by orange mylar and lastly a couple of passes of micromesh it is smooth as a babys bottom, butter smooth, a fat line and still lovely juicy feed.







By the way, although I have a very nice camera with a macro bellows, these were taken with a modified fisheye adapter for my old iphone 3. It works pretty well




Oh, and for looking down pen barrels and into pen caps, this helps: It is a white LED wired to a little torch and heat shrinked to a copper wire. I can bite the battery to switch the light on with both hands free. Its it very handy!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
