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 :)

      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.
