Putting Back Eco Feed



Recommended Posts

Hi guys, quick question to be 100% sure:

 

TWSBI eco: putting back the friction fit nib and feed: does it fit in every position / angle or is there only one slot where it will fit?

 

After ruining a Lamy I want to be 100% sure this time...

 

I have tried to search the internet and the forum but I couldn't find a satisfying answer. Please excuse me if I have overlooked the obvious...

The Eco feed/nib aren't keyed and don't need a specific angle/position. Diamond 580 does.

 

Makes it even more user friendly. Thanks for your feedback!

Most welcome :)

 

Don't yank out the nib/feed too frequently though; TWSBI Eco barrels may have a tendency to develop cracks around that area if the nib/feed are removed/re-inserted too frequently

True. I pulled mine once and it cracked. I suggest not pulling them. Go read their website, they have a specific method of replacing the nib.

Peace and Understanding

Ok, great. To me it seemed an easy pen to clean for trying out shimmering inks and things like that.

 

On the other hand, if the nib and feed was meant to be removed on a regular basis, it wouldn' have been friction fit...

Mine certainly haven't faced that fate, but placing the nib correctly on the feed while inserting is important. If the nib is too high on the feed, it can lead to too much stress at the feed collar and cause cracking

      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.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
