Fpr Modified Flex Nib, Ebonite Feed, In A Penbbs 456



Recommended Posts

The no. 6 flex nib from Fountain Pen Revolution fits in a Penbbs 456, this one in the absinthe material. The ebonite feed was shaved slightly to fit the plastic section housing. I modified this nib with wing scallops along the lines of the flex nib experiments in the thread below. FPR now sells these ultra flex nibs with wing scallops included. The ink is Diamine umber, and the paper is from MUJI.

I've found that the nib flexes better on these if the slit is a lot further from the section.

Also, when you're breaking one in, the right tine tends to bend up.

Not a problem.

Bend the left one up to match it & keep doing it every so often until it stabilizes.

You may have to heat set your feed again.

 

Looks like you did a side grind on yours.

That's what I do and then I take the top off & a little of the front as needed.

(I never really touch the bottom...Much)

F.P.R. and Noodler's nibs are rebranded Kanwrite. You can get them directly form Kanwrite at a fraction of the the cost, with added grinds, superflex, in #5 and #6, with jowo or bock housing, with extra ebonite feeds, steel and gold 24k.

Also, if you want a better flex get the #5 instead of the #6. I flexes better and is much bouncier.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
