Let's See Those Vintage Nibs On Your Conid Bulkfillers!

Does mean that a #6 jowo nib will actually fit a conid? I thought jowo would not fit a bock housing.

Joao nibs do fit the housing. However, whether the nib functions properly is, in my experience, hit or miss. I've tried three different Jowo nibs in two different Conids and found that the Bock feed created too wide of a gap between the tines, leading to hard starts. Others have reported having had more successful experiences, however.

Sorry - I didn't mean to hijack the thread on Vintage nibs. My Jowo 6 is doing well in my Conid. Anyway I'm going thru my spare nibs today - a nuich of chinese to see if they fit.

Is it an easy swap? Cos I've got a cross concord emperor just crying out for that transplant...

Too many pens; too little writing.

Does anyone know if Platinum 3776 and Nakaya nibs will fit the Minimalistica?

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
