54Th Massachusetts Mixes (With Quink, Pilot Parallel, Sheaffer, Lamy)

Recommended Posts

I am aware from reading around that some Noodler's inks aren't made for mixing because of some components reactive producing precipitation and what not.


I am wondering if any of you has had any experience with mixing 54th with quink, pilot, sheaffer, lamy. To my experience with the 4 inks, they are all completely compatible, but I am wondering if they are harmless to mix 54th as well.. thank you!

Hi,

 

As for blending N54M with another ink, I'd likely start with something benign/washable, such as Lamy Blue or Waterman Serenity as proof of concept.

 

According to Richard Binder, the Japanese inks in general have a low pH, so vigilance would be a good thing if going on that route.

 

One may well consider other Noodler's inks, such as the semi-bulletproof Liberty's Elysium, to add a greater Blue aspect to N54M and retain much of the inks' robust properties.

 

When starting with an ink so dark as N54M I often dilute it a bit so the addition of the other ink's colour is readily apparent, so my formulae would include N54M, water and another ink.

 

Bye,

S1

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
