Montblanc Noblesse Oblige Feeder Change


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I managed to ruin the feeder on one of my favorite Montblanc pens.


It is similar to this one:




1) I have no experience in repairing pens. Would changing the feeder be a doable task for me?


2) What tools to I need? I can only find 146/149 - series remover tools on eBay. This is a 522 nib.


Thanks a load in advance!

Yes, it's a do-able task, but there are two major obstacles to overcome:


1: Because the feed had a nipple to pierce the cartridge, you may need a special tool to knock it out, without harming the nipple. (However, if the feed you are removing is already broken, it may not matter if you just knock it out with a standard punch. The new feed is pushed into place without tools)


2: The biggest obstacle will be finding a replacement feed. You may be better off scouring the auction sites and classifieds for an old Noblesse being sold for parts. Other feeds may fit, but that would be a case of trial and error, until you find a suitable size.


Hope you can get it fixed. They're great pens.

Good luck.

So, it is friction set, isn't it?


I thought that it was more complicated, kinda like in the meisterstuck where you need -AFAIK- special tools.

Yes. Ideally I'd always use the tool to remove the feed case in Meisterstucks. But, nibs and feeds are friction fit int the feed=case - sometimes, they can be pulled and replaced without removing the feed case.


This what I was suggesting the OP examine, if the feed is already trashed.


It's been a while since I had a Noblesse - But, as far as I can recall, the feed and nib will come out with a knockout block. I had a hollow punch which accommodated the cartrige piercing nipple. There may be a feed-case, screwed into the section, but it seems nibs and feeds can be removed without removing this.


As I say, I'm going from memory here. If other members have more concrete advice, I'm sure they'll chip in.

the nib / feed is friction fit


can be taken oiut with firm pressure between thumb pulp on nib and the knuckle of index finger on feed


but hat is the easier part - finding a replacement would be the real challenge

Enjoy your pens

Have a nice day

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      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.

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.
