How To Get Additional Nibs For A Conid Bulkfiller?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need some beginner's instructions to procure an additional nib for a Conid Standard Bulkfiller. I have one and I regret getting a Titanium F nib. It's too broad for me, so I am interested in getting an EF.

 

Obviously they are too tied up to do anything for me, but I heard it is possible to DIY (... Bock?)

 

This will be a new adventure for me, so appreciate any help from you.

 

What model to buy will be compatible?

 

Where to buy?

 

I have seen nib replacements that are just a piece of thin metal nib, and I have seen nib replacements that come with a base assembled unit. Which should I be getting?

 

Finally... instruction for the surgical operation please...

 

Thanks

This could be a helpful thread:

If it's the standard #6 Bock nib and housing for your Conid (probably model 250), then you can do either: buy a separate nib or nib with housing. Might be easier to just buy the housing + nib and unscrew the old nib unit, then screw in the new one.

This place is great for custom grinds and fine-tuning for your nibs:

Flexible nib factory also makes collars and feeds for different kinds of nibs that will fit into a Conid.

The Bock nib assembly works perfectly in Conid. It is extremely easy to replace.

 

Question: why is there a needle in the original Conid nib assembly that reaches deep into the barrel of the pen?

 

The Bock replacement doesn't have it but seems to work perfectly as well.

They are size 8. I wanted to replace my ATI nibs with rhodium over gold. Fpnibs.com will plate Bock nibs however you want and engrave them. They are not branded. I now have matching EF #8 rhodinated nibs in my 4 bulkfillers. Work perfectly and delivered in record time seeing as they are coming from Spain to the US. Highly recommended

It's a piece to break up the surface tension of the ink so it doesn't sit at the back of the mini chamber and stays up against the feed.

Really? I thought it was an antenna linked directly to Conid Central Command. Now I don't have to keep my Minimalistica in a mylar bag any more. :bunny01:

Thanks.

 

But the nib that fits my Regular Bulkfiller is not no. 8. It is no. 6 also referred to as 250. As Intensity replied above.

The Regular Bulkfiller and Minimalisticas are #6, the Kingsize is #8. The Slimline takes a #5. No idea about the Giraffe as it is too ridiculous to even contemplate :)

      @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.
