Stipula Fpn Pen--Who Can Adjust Flow?


Recommended Posts

I have a Stipula FPN pen. If there were several series, this is from the first series. It's never written well; the flow stops. I don't like flossing tines, and slightly spreading the shoulders hasn't worked. Who can reliably repair this?

You've got over 1100 posts here so you probably know every trick in the book, but just to be safe... If it has never written well, then perhaps it hasn't been used much at all, in which case there still might be traces of contaminants present from the manufacturing process. Flush repeatedly with a mild soap solution. Gently flossing the tines with 12k grit can do wonders. Never noticed any negative consequences from a gentle floss. If you don't want to do that, use a very wet ink (if there's one thing I've learned during my brief foray into fountain pen land, it's that a pen's performance can change dramatically just from changing to a different ink). If none of this helps, then search this forum for a nibmeister in your area (there are plenty of requests around for repair services in region X).


Good luck!

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
