I've got a few adjustable nib Dorics, and tonight I was restoring another one when I started to wonder just how many adjustable nib sizes there are. I have a #3, #5, #7, and #9 in my collection, and I know there are also #6 and #10 nibs, but a search for ads and pictures already online only confirmed those. Were there are any #1, #2, #4, or #8 adjustable nibs?

 

Thanks!

No adjustable 1,2,4,or 8 have ever been reported seen by anyone I've ever known not shown in any catalogs, ads or brochures. I was going to simply say "none ever made" but I have no absolute proof to offer.

I acquired a good quality #6 adjustable nib from a busted jet black Doric. Now I just need to find a #10

Perhaps you could tell me what sizes would fit a first-gen Doric ringtop...Junior size? It's got a Number Four Wahl right now, but I am dissatisfied with it.

Note that if you are switching to an adjustable nib from a fixed nib you also need to change the feed.

 

A 3 would work.

      @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.
