Aurora 80Th Anniversary Le Nib Off Center

Hey all, it's been a really long time since my last post, but I still visit regularly. :D I have just acquired a beautiful Aurora 80th Anniversary Limited Edition fp. When I have been journaling with it, after a little while the ink flow slows and it starts skipping. I took a closer look at the nib and it is sitting off kilter on the feed. It needs to be rotated a bit counter clockwise to sit center on the feed. Not sure if that will help with the wetness, it might just be that I am creating an ink vacuum from writing with too much verbosity! ;)

 

This is my first Aurora and I have read that many Aurora pen feed sections are threaded. Before I crank down on this and try to twist the nib/feed from the section housing, I wanted to see if anyone has worked on this specific pen. I imagine getting the nib unit out will allow knockout of the feed and nib from the container housing? Then I can re insert the nib and feed properly aligned?

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If it's only slightly off center then it may be moveable without having to come out of the section. Some nibs can move slightly when they are wiped or polished and you sometimes need to line them up with the feed channel.

Yea just grab the nib and twist it sideways- see Penhabits video.

Was there a specific video you are referring to? There were a couple about tuning nibs that I found but haven't watched them fully. Thanks

I think it was one of the more recent videos. Maybe check the last 3. If it is just a small gap you should be able to twist it into the alignment of your liking. Good luck.
